Auberge Du Soleil
The Auberge du Soleil Story What 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.
Auberge du Soleil opened in 1981 as Napa Valley's first fine-dining restaurant and the vision of French-born Rouas, who sought to recreate the sun-drenched ambiance of Provence in the California wine country.
Perched on the slope of Rutherford Hill overlooking Napa Valley, the Auberge quickly gained recognition as one of the leading restaurants in Northern California, not only for its superb cuisine but also its spectacular views of the valley below. These days, with a sophisticated new design and acclaimed new chef, the restaurant continues to win international recognition.
The inn has also recently introduced Spa du Soleil, a retreat modeled after a centuries-old monastery. With its fountains, private gardens and outdoor soaking pools, the spa provides a physical and emotional barrier from the outside world, offering a setting for peaceful rejuvenation.
