Evoking the sophistication of the South of France, Auberge du Soleil has been one of Napa Valley’s most luxurious places to stay since 1985, when 50 sun-and-earth-toned “maisons” were added to Rutherford, Claude Rouas’s celebrated destination restaurant. Wine director Kris Margerum curates a stellar list of over 15,000 selections, working with the culinary team to create perfect pairings for the Michelin-starred restaurant’s Mediterranean-inspired menus. The original Michael Taylor interiors have been extensively updated by Taylor’s former protégé, San Francisco designer Suzanne Tucker, and the rooms feature private terraces and fireplaces.
