Bishop's Lodge 7 Deliciously Cozy Wines for This Holiday Season

Wine and hors d'oeuvres by the fire

Break out the decor, it's the holiday season! I’m not sure where the past year has flown, but I’m certainly glad to be getting into the festive spirit. This season, I’m sharing some of my favorite wines at Skyfire to get your holidays off to a great start. Many are traditional pairings you would expect with any turkey or ham dinner (or cauliflower steak, if you’re like me!) and a few are incredible lesser-known wines that bring the adventure straight to your table.

Bishop's Lodge Starting a New Tradition at the Bunkhouse

Living room at Bunkhouse

Life can throw some curveballs, but there’s one constant that I always look forward to, and that’s vacationing with my eight best girlfriends from college every other year. It’s a tradition that’s become sacrosanct. It keeps us grounded and connected to what’s most important in life—spending time with loved ones. The choice of destination has changed over the years from big, energetic cities with buzzy dining scenes in our first few reunions, to relaxed beach getaways for melting the stress right off as our lives got busier.

Malliouhana The story behind our Anguillian Salt

Malliouana Resort, Exterior

As you depart our sundrenched shores and the endless, sparkling waters of the sapphire sea, we are so honored to share this special piece of our island history with you. Dating back to the early 1600’s, Anguilla has had a long and storied past with the development of the salt industry on our remote island in the Caribbean. To this day, Anguillian salt remains an integral part of our identity, culture, and history. The salt you hold in your hands today derives directly from our ponds, and was even gathered by team members from our own Malliouhana family this past September.

Commodore Perry Auberge ArtSalon - A Reverberation

Delaney Allen - Artist in Residence at Commodore Perry Estate

It is often said that artists hold up a mirror to society. If this is the case, then their art serves as a prism through which we can view the times we live in, often from an entirely new perspective. In the Auberge ArtSalon series, six emerging artists will turn their own unique gaze on six iconic Auberge retreats to create art installations that reflect each property’s individual character, setting, heritage, and place in the world today.

Mayflower Chef-in-Residence April Bloomfield on her experience at Mayflower Inn & Spa

Chef April Bloomfield

When one door closes, another one usually blows wide open. And that’s exactly how Chef April Bloomfield ended up the current chef-in-residence at Mayflower Inn & Spa, Auberge Resorts Collection. After her beloved Manhattan gastropub The Breslin closed down last March per COVID protocol, the British-born chef found herself in a position she hadn’t been in for nearly 30 years. “I've been working solidly since I was 16, so of course I didn't really know what to do with myself. I was going stir crazy and feeling a bit restless,” she says. “So when I got the offer I was in the right place to start spreading my wings.”

Bishop's Lodge A Glimpse Into Santa Fe’s Early Art Scene at Bishop’s Lodge

Warren Eliphalet Rollins

Settled more than 150 years ago, Bishop’s Lodge is steeped in history and a profound sense of place. As its General Manager, I take special pride in our team’s sensitive restoration and preservation efforts. Authenticity infuses our entire approach, and one extraordinary tribute—both to the diverse native communities that have long made New Mexico their home, as well as to Santa Fe’s deep artistic roots—can be found in our Dining Room. Taking pride of place are four newly restored oil paintings by Warren E. Rollins of Puebloan life from the 1920s.

White Barn Inn Jenny Wolf on Redesigns, Serendipity and Pandemics

White Barn Inn Interior Designer Jenny Wolf

A comprehensive redesign of a historic inn will always present its share of challenges for even the most unflappable interior designer. Getting it done in the midst of a global pandemic requires nerves of steel. “It was crazy,” says Jenny Wolf, head of Jenny Wolf Interiors, which oversaw the refurbishment of the White Barn Inn and Spa, part of the Auberge Resort Collections, and a beloved local landmark for more than 150 years in Kennebunk, Maine.

Mayflower Celerie Kemble on her design vision for the Mayflower Inn and Spa

Celerie Kemble

Kemble approached the redesign to Mayflower’s historic site with “great trepidation, respect and a sense of enthusiasm.” More than a hotel, she says the Mayflower Inn & Spa feels like someone’s home, with a sense of gracious hosting, comfort and personality. The idea was a refresh, not a demolition.. She picked out the things that were worth preserving, that had aged well and brought a sense of authenticity to the site, including mahogany four-poster beds and lamps, refectory tables, chinoiserie chairs, a papier-mache chinoiserie coffee table and game tables. She mixed in Scandinavian and colonial American design influences with sisal carpets, Turkish rugs, hand-crafted ceramics, wicker, as well as textiles from Schumacher, Sister Parish, and Penny Morrison.

Madeline Telluride’s Must-Try Winter Sport: Ice Climbing

Ice Climbing

As Madeline’s General Manager, I’m pretty spoiled for choice when it comes to winter sports. When I want to feel the thrill of soaring down the mountain, I ski. When I want to explore the deep tranquility of the backcountry, I snowshoe. When I want to feel as if I’m floating over the snow, I hop on my fat tire bike. Now, after an amazing half-day adventure with Mountain Trip, I have an exhilarating new winter sport to add to my repertoire: ice climbing.
