Several luxury hotel properties, including Meadowood Napa Valley and Calistoga Ranch, Auberge Resorts Collection, have been damaged by the Glass Fire, one of several in California’s Bay Area/wine region.

According to ABC 7 News, as thousands of residents fled their homes in Calistoga Monday, much of the property at Meadowood Napa Valley resort was damaged or destroyed by the fire. The main building, which housed the three Michelin-starred Restaurant at Meadowood, was reduced to rubble, the report said.

Christopher Kostow, the executive chef of The Restaurant at Meadowood, posted on his Instagram: “We are all torn apart. A Eulogy is deserved, and will be given in due time... for now, I want to thank all of the TRAMily that have ever graced this magical space—and all of the guests over the years who have enjoyed the efforts of these multitudes. What an honor it has been. Martina and I wish our broader, Napa community safety and courage during this devastating time."
