FrontRunners: Laundry Service

    The concept of aging well in Napa Valley applies to more than just the region’s wines. Poetry Inn (www.poetryinn.com), a lodge set on a hilltop at Napa’s Cliff Lede Vineyards, recently introduced a three-night birthday package that features a private dinner for 10 cooked by famed French Laundry chef Thomas Keller. The $60,000 Ultimate Birthday Bash also includes a bottle of first-growth Bordeaux from the celebrant’s birth year.
    To prolong the celebration, you can travel a few miles north to Meadowood (www.meadowood.com), which recently debuted four cottage-style accommodations that are well suited to special occasions. The resort’s Estate Rooms and Estate Suites ($975 to $4,025 per night) range from 820 square feet to 2,960 square feet and have secluded trellised gardens. The property also has reopened its Restaurant at Meadowood.
