Vendange Carmel Inn and Suites Announces New Wine-Themed Room in Partnership with Award-Winning Mesa Del Sol Estate Retreat and Winery of Greenfield, California

Vendange Carmel Inn and Suites has announced a new wine-themed room designed by owner and winemaker Ann Hougham of award-winning Mesa Del Sol Estate Retreat and Winery of Greenfield, California.

Carmel, CA, April 27, 2017 — Vendange Carmel Inn and Suites has announced a new wine-themed room designed by owner and winemaker Ann Hougham of award-winning Mesa Del Sol Estate Retreat and Winery of Greenfield, California.

Hougham decorated the room in a country vineyard theme, with muted floral print shams and bedskirts on the bed, color photographs of Arroyo Seco gorge and the Mesa Del Sol vineyards, a ladder-back wooden chair and antique, pine-trimmed mirror, wine paintings, a tray with two of Mesa Del Sol's award-winning wines and two wine glasses.

The room boasts sleek, modern bathrooms with imported Spanish marble. Sleeping areas have memory foam-top beds, deluxe linens, and high-definition flat-screen televisions.

Mesa Del Sol joins 13 other wineries in partnership with Vendange to sponsor wine-themed rooms. From the McIntyre Vineyards’ room with its impressive 100-year-old grapevine section to J. Lohr’s wine barrel on the balcony, every winery’s room offers a signature luxury experience. The participating wineries include: Blair, Cima Collina, Dawn’s Dream, Galante, Holman Ranch, J. Lohr, Joullian, Manzoni, McIntyre, Otter Cove, Tudor, Twisted Roots, and Ventana.

Mesa Del Sol is located on a beautiful upland promontory at the junction of three major watersheds, and is on property that was once believed to have been a stage stop for travelers headed overland to Carmel Valley or up the Arroyo Seco River to the Mission San Antonio.

Since 2000, Hougham has continued to restore the 14-acre vineyard estate and produce award-winning grapes for many celebrated Monterey County vintners. The estate buildings have been lovingly restored, the grounds beautifully landscaped and crops now include fragrant Provence Lavender used in sachets, lotions and oils.

Lean rocky soils nurtured with organic farming practices and irrigated from a thriving trout pond feed the vineyards. The hot arid days of the uplands and cool marine night air of the Pacific provide a perfect setting for the grapevines.

Past harvests have brought Mesa Del Sol accolades; most notably the 2002 Hunter Hill Mesa Del Sol Syrah took "Best in Show" at the 2005 California State Fair Wine Competition. The Syrah was chosen as number one from a field of 2,800 wines.

Current releases have been garnering 90-point-plus reviews from Wine Enthusiast including a 93-point score for her 2011 Syrah. Winemaker Ian Brand, Mesa Del Sol's winemaker since 2011, handcrafts magic into every bottle.

Current Mesa Del Sol Varietals include Syrah, Sangiovese, Zinfandel, Dessert Zinfandel and Prima Rosso (a blend of estate-grown fruit).

About Mesa Del Sol Estate Retreat and Winery
Located on a beautiful upland promontory at the junction of three major watersheds, Mesa Del Sol has been a favorite location for more than a century.

One small stone building, a water house, and a portion of one of our cabins date back to the 1800's and are believed to have been a stage stop for travelers headed overaland to Carmel Valley or up the Arroyo Seco River to the Mission San Antonio.

Around the turn of the century, a health center with various small cabins was developed. The hot dry pure air of the Arroyo Seco Highlands became a soothing setting for those with tuberculosis and other maladies. Teddy Roosevelt was a visitor and stayed here during that time!

In 1927, California Senator Fred Weybret purchased the property and moved his family here. The main house was constructed in 1936 out of local redwood and Carmel stone. The Senator and his family lived here until his death in 1945 and the land passed on to a noted Monterey County lettuce baron from Salinas, Steve Rianda, and his talented artist wife, Mary.

With their three children, the Rianda family lived on the property, named it Mesa Del Sol, and went on to beautify the mesa, adding a pool and other out buildings and cultivating the grounds and gardens over the next 25 years.

In 1998 another Salinas-born agricultural innovator Jake Hougham, purchased the land. The vineyards were planted and the trout pond was reinstalled at that time.

Since Jake Hougham's death in 2000, his wife Ann has continued to restore the 14 acre vineyard estate and produce award-winning grapes for many celebrated Monterey County vintners. The estate buildings have been lovingly restored, the grounds beautifully landscaped and crops now include fragrant Provence Lavender used in sachets, lotions and oils.
