Mad Fritz now on Tap at the Auberge Bistro & Bar!

UNIQUELY BREWED BEER IN THE NAPA VALLEY
There is an old saying that ‘it takes a lot of beer to make great wines…’  Well, Nile Zacherle can attest to it!  After nearly 25 years of home brewing he decided to go pro and thus Mad Fritz Brewing was born.
We serve Niles’ ‘Wind and Sun’ golden ale on tap in the Bistro & Bar, and we are 1 of 3 places serving Niles’ beer.  The beer is poured into a Burgundy stem.  Nile also makes wine for David Arthur Vineyards and Montagna Napa Valley.  Niles uses a single variety barley and organic hops for Wind & Sun, then ferments in stainless steel and aged in 3rd use French oak Chardonnay barrels for about 1 to 2 months which gives the beer a subtle vinous character and oak tones.

THE WIND AND SUN – GOLDEN ALE

BREWER’S NOTE

Our rendition of a Belgium Strong Ale with Saison styling offers the spicy notes derived from the yeast without late hop additions. We use a straight 2 row Rebel Micro Malted Copeland variety for the grain bill. This beer is fermented in stainless steel and is aged in 3rd use French oak Chardonnay barrels for about 1 to 2 months which gives the beer a subtle vinous character and oak tones. Our Golden will age beautifully for months and potentially years to come due to its low terminal gravity that also makes it crisp, lean and deceivingly potent.

World Water Day

By:  Jessica Grega

This Sunday, March 22 is World Water Day.  Auberge du Soleil, a Relais & Chateaux property in the Napa Valley, takes a multi-faceted approach towards conservation. At Auberge du Soleil we manage our own water company which provides water to the facility while also supplying residents on Rutherford Hill Road.  We divert  50% of our waste from the landfill and have implemented a food scrap composting program.  Auberge is proud to be a WHOLE WORLD Water member.  We believe in supporting local sustainability initiatives including The Napa Valley Vine Trail, Napa Local Food Advisory Council, and the Land Trust of Napa County.

Auberge du Soleil believes in fostering a sustainable Napa Valley through mentorship programs.  We encourage and reward employee involvement within our community.  Auberge du Soleil is taking proactive steps to reduce our carbon output, while helping mitigate the effects of Climate Change.

The WHOLE WORLD Water campaign coincides with our own mission to achieve balance between the luxury elements of our property with our impact on the environment.   Every traveler can be a part of the solution to the world water crisis, with the added benefit that our participation with WHOLE WORLD Water is good for business while being good for the earth.  We are in a unique position to be the first industry ever to unite, address a global issue, and actually eradicate it.

Today, nearly ONE BILLION PEOPLE do not have access to clean and safe water.  Ask yourself the question, how far do you have to walk to fill a glass of water?  As I write this, I can get a glass of water from multiple safe sources, select my level of filtration, or whether I prefer bubbles or not- the ease of which is a luxury too often taken for granted.

Bottling our well water on-site reduces carbon emissions by eliminating the transportation of water from around the world, plus the WHOLE WORLD water bottle is not only unique, but re-usable.  The elegant design fits in seamlessly at Auberge du Soleil.

Thus far the program has been a tremendous success with our patrons.  An unforeseen bonus of implementing the Vivreau filtration system and becoming a member of WHOLE WORLD Water, the water tastes great and our associates are choosing to drink water rather than soda!

Investing in programs like WHOLE WORLD Water allows us to give back to those who support Auberge du Soleil.  Over the years we have tended vital partnerships that allow us to communicate our stewardship message, effect positive environmental change, and raise the awareness of our guests and colleagues.

Relais & Châteaux North America

As our schedules get busier and our lives more hectic, the concept of sitting down and experiencing a meal becomes a notion, a reminiscent luxury, of the past. Today, even when people take the time to sit down for a meal with one another, too often their attention is focused on things other than the company they’re with and the food they’re eating. At Relais & Châteaux properties across North America we aspire to remind people what it truly means to experience the moment and of the value of making time for what is important.

 

We have created a short film to celebrate the cuisine of Relais & Châteaux throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central America and its focus on the concept of “sense of place.” It is the intention of our chefs and team to make sure that each and every time our guests dine with us, they remember what it is to be inspired by an experience that can only be had in that moment and in that place.

 

We hope you enjoy this film, and that whether it be in your own home or during your next visit to Auberge du Soleil , you are reminded during your next meal to embrace and savor the beauty of disconnecting and creating memories with the ones you love.

Intimate Weddings at Auberge du Soleil

We love intimate weddings at Auberge du Soleil! Imagine your destination wedding with only your closest friends and family at one of Napa Valley’s premier resorts for timeless celebrations.  Nestled on our 33 acres where meandering paths, dappled sunlight, a flowing stream and age-old olive trees provide an idyllic retreat, your ceremony location awaits. Guests will casually stroll through the romantic Olive Grove and Sculpture Garden amid terraced rock walls created by hand in the Mediterranean tradition. At the end of their path, the beautifully set La Pagode awaits. This open air, Asian-inspired pavilion offers a unique location for private celebrations and and elegant elopements.

After you exchange your vows, guests will take a short golf cart ride to the reception location. Perhaps one of Auberge’s best kept secrets, the Maison d’ Arbre room – affectionately known as the “Tree House,” offers the resort’s best view of Napa Valley. With a private balcony, fireplace, vaulted ceiling, and French Doors, this enchanting space will come alive as you toast and dine the evening away!
