Auberge du Soleil strives to live in harmony with the environment and we are dedicated to preserving and protecting the Napa Valley terroir and culture. We are committed to enriching the guest experience by providing local resources unique to California’s Napa Valley.
We are confident that by implementing ecological practices and encouraging our guests, employees, and community to be stewards of the Napa Valley, we will limit our environmental footprint and inspire a more conscious daily lifestyle.

Auberge du Soleil is proud to be the first hotel in the Napa Valley certified through the Bay Area Green Business Program.
The Auberge Spa is an original partner of the Green Spa Network, a foundation devoted to promoting the vital connections between personal wellbeing, resource sustainability, and earth friendly practices.
We are pleased to be a part of the Whole World Water Fund. WHOLE WORLD water is a three year hospitality and tourism campaign that addresses the fact that nearly 1 billion people do not have access to clean drinking water. Leveraging the incredible potential of the hospitality and tourism industry to spur global change, the model encourages spas, hotels, resorts and restaurants to filter, bottle and sell their own water, while contributing 10% of the proceeds to the WHOLE WORLD Water Fund; a fund benefiting clean and safe water programs around the world. The Auberge du Soleil Restaurant and Auberge Bistro & Bar are now offering our very own sparkling and still water using the Vivreau filtration system.
Auberge is an active member and supporter of The Napa Valley Vine Trail. The NVVT is a grassroots effort to implement a multi-use hiking & biking trail from Calistoga to Vallejo.
Auberge du Soleil adds a $4 donation to every hotel reservation (opt out available at checkout) which is matched by the hotel. Currently, these funds are donated to the Napa Valley Vine Trail. The 44 miles of recreational trails will begin in Calistoga and run through the entire Napa Valley, ending at the Vallejo Ferry terminal. The trail will significantly reduce the community’s carbon footprint The Vine Trail is a grass roots organization that will have a positive impact on our community and visitors to the Napa Valley.
