The Foley Food and Wine Society combines three of Bill Foley’s favorite things – wine, food, and travel. Society members gain entree to the society’s international wineries, resorts, and restaurants. Members are invited to private members only events, receive special offers on wine, and access to sommeliers, chefs, and golf professionals. Incredible experiences are part of the membership package. Points earned can be redeemed for culinary tours, cooking demonstrations, ATV tours, golf at gold-standard courses, and ski passes. The society’s diverse list of properties offer activities for every kind of traveler.
The society’s four properties in Sonoma encompass vineyards, wineries, stables, and guest residences just an hour and a half from San Francisco. Sonoma’s scene is described as “laid back luxury,” complete with a plethora of open spaces to appreciate the area’s natural beauty. Sonoma is known for world class golfing, different types of fishing, horseback riding and ballooning. The society owns three properties in the nearby
Napa Valley, including a winery operated by Bill and Carol Foley. Napa has been known as a winemaking hot spot since 1858. A congruence of geographical factors, including its wide range of soils, create the fantastic Napa terroir. Further up the California coast, Lake County is an ecological gem. Although often overshadowed by nearby winemaking regions, Lake County is popular for its geysers and incredible 150 species of animals in its wilderness.
The society owns four properties in the northwestern United States, in the states of Montana, Idaho, and Washington. Mountainous Montana is noted for its natural beauty and tranquility, and nearby Idaho offers great outdoor activities all year round. Washington is finally gaining respect in the wine industry, with Foley partner Three Rivers Winery notable for its Bordeaux varieties.
Internationally, the society owns four properties in unique New Zealand. A large range of outdoor activities will delight active-minded travelers, and those who prefer a more laid back experience can enjoy the wine regions of Marlborough and Wairarapa.
