Auberge du Soleil
Auberge du Soleil
AS DESCRIBED BY PROPERTY: Auberge du Soleil, the California Wine Country’s most prestigious luxury inn, is a distinctive property that captures the international atmosphere of today's Napa Valley. For many, the name Auberge du Soleil connotes cuisine first, with the inn of the same name a delightful afterthought. Indeed, Auberge du Soleil began as a Napa Valley restaurant created by visionary restaurateur Claude Rouas more than 30 years ago. It was these breathtaking valley views that inspired Rouas to recreate the sun-drenched ambiance of a Provençal restaurant in the California Wine Country. As Napa Valley’s first fine-dining establishment, it opened to acclaim in 1981 and quickly gained recognition as one of the leading and best restaurants in Northern California, not only for its superb cuisine, but also its spectacular natural setting. Since then, Auberge has maintained its legacy as a culinary destination, where innovative menus inspired by the bounty of Napa Valley are paired with wine in ways that delight and inspire longtime devotees.

DESTINATION TIP: Napa Valley is one of the premier travel destinations in the world. Breathtaking views abound at every turn – mustard in the late winter, picturesque rolling hills planted with vineyards year-round and wineries of every stature dot the landscape. Today Napa Valley features more than four hundred wineries and grows many different grape varieties including Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, Zinfandel, and other popular varietals. We would suggest hiring a private driver when wine tasting so you can enjoy the scenery and your time wine tasting.
