UPDATE: New Electric Vehicle Charging Stations & Hybrid Shuttles at Bardessono Hotel, Restaurant and Spa

Hotel Partners With The Napa Valley Land Trust

YOUNTVILLE, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 21, 2011) - The Platinum LEED Certified hotel, Bardessono in Yountville, California has partnered with Lexus, Tesla Motors, and AV Aerovironment to offer guests the option to use electric and hybrid transportation. The hotel has upgraded two of the existing 240 v 50 amp receptacles to the most universal adapter on the market, the type II. This type II connector is more convenient to use as it has a 15' cord. It will become the EV industry standard -- able to accommodate most all EV vehicles on the market today.

Bardessono also offers guests the use of two Lexus RX 450 hybrid vehicles for leisure and for shuttle transportation. These new efforts further exemplify Bardessono Hotel's commitment to luxurious sustainability.

In an effort to protect the open-space of Napa Valley, Bardessono is now offering the Hike the Day Away package. This new package includes two annual memberships to the Napa Valley Land Trust and overnight accommodations in a luxury King Spa suite. The Napa Valley Land Trust is a community-based non-profit dedicated to preserving the character of Napa by permanently protecting its land. In addition to supporting this organization, the membership includes hiking access to land not accessible to the general public. This package encourages guests to get out and enjoy the unparalleled natural beauty right in Bardessono's backyard.

"We are very pleased to partner with Bardessono on the 'Hike the Day Away' package. Bardessono and the Land Trust of Napa County share a common philosophy of honoring our land and limited resources. We look forward to showing our mutual guests the natural beauty of Napa County through our hikes and field trip programs," said Joel Tranmer, CEO - Land Trust of Napa County.
