SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – (March 10, 2016) – The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco, the landmark Nob Hill hotel, is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a series of five, over-the-top $25,000 experiences inspired by San Francisco. The first experience will launch in April – the official anniversary month of the hotel – and the others will be rolled out throughout the year. The hotel will also offer a special ‘Silver Anniversary’ overnight package during the month of April.

$25, 000 25th Anniversary Experience Series
To celebrate 25 years of luxury and excellence, The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco is offering a series of extravagant themed packages that will be rolled out over the course of the 25th anniversary year with each package valued at $25,000 each. Each package includes incredible experiences that are uniquely San Francisco and representative of The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco as an iconic luxury hotel. Guests will enjoy timeless throwbacks of hotel offerings from the past 25 years with contemporary touches, to parallel the hotel's balance of timeless yet modern luxury.

To kick off the 25th Anniversary Experience Series, the hotel will roll-out a package dedicated to one of the things San Francisco does best: ‘Ultimate Food & Wine.’ The experiential package will pay homage to the Bay Area as a culinary mecca of the west by showcasing the best food and wine experiences in the area. In addition to two-night accommodations in the Presidential Suite, guests receive their very own custom wine label made in collaboration with legendary winemaker Jean Charles Boisset. Guests are sent via private helicopter to Raymond Vineyards in Napa to create the wine label with Jean Charles Boisset himself, who will assist guests with selecting the wine type, flavor profile, name, and label design of their new wine. Mr. Boisset also stores a reserve barrel of wine at Raymond Vineyards, to be aged and delivered to guests in 2017.

Additional experiences include a private hot air balloon ride in Napa featuring breathtaking views of the area, and an exclusive wine flight experience in The JCB Tasting Lounge at The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco paired with a special amuse-bouche tasting experience from Chef Michael Rotondo of Parallel 37. To cap off the indulgent culinary experience, guests are treated to an abalone diving excursion off the Pacific Coast, followed by a private dinner with Chef Rotondo featuring their freshly purveyed abalone.

The ‘Ultimate Food & Wine’ 25th Anniversary Experience is available for $25,000 exclusively during the month of April. To reserve this experience, please contact Shelly Auyeung at (415) 364-3479 or shelly.auyeung@ritzcarlton.com.
