From Wine Country to the Desert

Tucked into the vine covered hills of Sonoma County’s wine country, Montage Healdsburg, centrally located amongst wineries in the Alexander, Dry Creek and Russian River valleys, is slated to open in 2020. Set to break ground this spring near downtown Healdsburg, the 258-acre property will feature wine country contemporary, bungalow-style accommodations and Montage Residences. 

Focusing on the heritage of culinary excellence in the area, Montage Healdsburg will offer a treehouse-inspired, gourmet-dining restaurant as well as an outdoor bar and grill. The environmentally sensitive design highlights the surrounding wine country and will include an infinity pool overlooking the resort’s vineyards.

“Montage Healdsburg will feature breathtaking views of vineyards and oak woodlands, and will provide guests with signature Montage amenities,” says Alan J. Fuerstman, founder, chairman and CEO of Montage International. “It is destined to become a wine country landmark, and we look forward to becoming a member of the Sonoma County community.”

Also in 2020, in the California desert’s Coachella Valley—where music lovers, foodies and the glitterati from across the country flock each spring for Modernism Week in Palm Springs and the Palm Desert Food & Wine, Coachella Valley Music and Arts and Stagecoach festivals— Montage International plans to open Montage La Quinta. The midcentury modern property will be nestled against the Santa Rosa Mountains and will include Montage La Quinta with branded Montage Residences, and Pendry La Quinta with branded Pendry Residences.   

“We will be bringing to the city of La Quinta, an amazing resort unlike anything else in the desert,” Fuerstman says. “The architecture, design, amenities and, most importantly, the extraordinary service that is the hallmark of Montage International, should be a perfect fit for the community.”    

Montage La Quinta will be centered around an 18-hole Arnold Palmer signature golf course, and will also be the company’s first joint development venture that incorporates its two hotel and resort brands.
