Darby, MT. – Triple Creek Ranch, the legendary Relais & Chateaux mountain ranch getaway in Montana, is famed for its inventive cuisine, ranch activities, and stellar service. Named to the Travel + Leisure 2023 T+L 500 list of the best hotels in the world, and singled out by the publication as Best Resort Hotel, Montana, its award-winning wine cellar has been a recipient of Wine Spectator awards since 2005. What makes Triple Creek Ranch’s wine program truly remarkable is the resort’s robust calendar of Vintner Events.
This season, Triple Creek Ranch is welcoming Hill Family Estates, J. Bookwalter Wines, Chateau Montelena, Schramsberg & Davies Vineyards, and Chappellet Winery.
These four-day weekend events, from Thursday to Sunday, spotlight some of the best-known vintners in the United States. Wines from the featured vintner are poured throughout the weekend, and often, vintner partners will bring rare treasures that are not available anywhere else. Each Vintner Event includes intimate wine tastings and wine dinners in the company of the winemakers. There are guided wine-tasting seminars and a highly anticipated wine-paired dinner on Saturday night. It’s a unique combination of outdoor adventures and serious wine appreciation in an amazing mountain setting.
Other activities scheduled for these weekends reflect the diverse personalities of Triple Creek Ranch’s vintner partners and have included cooking classes, geocache scavenger hunts, horseback rides, orchard picnics, and cross-country ski treks. All this, of course, is in addition to the robust menu of experiences that Ranch guests enjoy regularly. A Pre-Arrival Concierge can provide the details of a particular weekend. All wine-oriented activities during the weekend are included in the nightly rate.
