The Bardessono is a world-class luxury inn located in the heart of the Napa Valley wine country. The inn embodies contemporary luxury and the simplified elegance of wine-country living and is the first “LEEDS Platinum” designated hotel in the country. Opening in February 2009, in the midst of an exceedingly difficult economic period that stressed all hospitality and travel related businesses, the principal investors in the Bardessono sought alternatives to restructure and extend financing arrangements.

ZS Role

ZS was engaged by the Bardessono’s investors to evaluate restructuring alternatives and implement a restructuring plan to put the business on a stable financial footing.


ZS successfully negotiated and closed a comprehensive long-term restructure of the Bardessono’s financing arrangements on terms that defused lender concerns and provided flexibility to continue to build the business.
