Auberge du Soleil also known as the "Inn of the Sun" began as a fine California-French restaurant created by Claude Rouas, a leading San Francisco restaurateur, has evolved into one of America's most sought-after small luxury hotels and a perennial recipient of the hospitality industry's highest honors.
The Auberge's French-accented California style and soft-spoken luxury echo the character of Napa Valley, a place to savor the bounty of fine food and wine and immerse oneself in an exquisite natural setting.
No matter where you sit, you’ll be able to take in glorious panoramic views of the Napa Valley. One mirrored wall is strategically placed to reflect acres of vineyards into the room, and multiple French doors invite diners to amble outside onto the adjacent decks. The Terrace and ceremony deck have unparalleled vistas, and on warm days or evenings can be set up for outdoor receptions with tables and umbrellas. A stone-sculpted fountain is set off to one side of the Terrace, and terracotta pots filled with brilliantly colored annuals are placed around its periphery.
A wisteria-entwined trellis at one end of the Terrace offers guests a sheltered spot where they can enjoy hors d’oeuvres and watch a sunset or wedding ceremony. The ceremony deck, which extends out from the Terrace, offers the bride and groom a special spot to take their vows while their lucky guests get to see them, framed by the panorama beyond.
