The beautiful Napa Valley was where my husband Adam and I spent our birthdays and our anniversary this past week!
We stayed at a friend’s guest house right near the beautiful Auberge de Soleil Hotel; and even in the off-season; the weather was gorgeous!!!
The first place I want to share is one of the most beautiful, magical restaurant I have ever seen! In fact, the minute we saw it ,
we decided to have lunch and dinner there the first full day we were there!
At first we saw this beautiful stone building!
then the garden gate….leading to the courtyard
in the courtyard we discovered
this bench which says “fresh water pure wine all together”
and this one next to it which says “Where we Feel Hard Bread”
and on the wall “Is!, is!, is!)
I love this light fixture!
this is for private parties!
and the wine bar is downstairs!
this great seal was imbedded in the courtyard
this lovely terrace is in the courtyard as well
the outside terrace
the old signs preserved!
another fascinating old sign.
I love the color and the hinge!
through the curtains!
There he is again right over the entry door!
The most glamorous bar!!
a lovely open kitchen!
I love the ceiling molding detail!
the dining room exquisite!
The courtyard was fascinating!
They grow their own vegetables!
the vines in the summer!
the artichokes and veggies!
the courtyard with vegetables!
here is the same arch in the summer!
the vineyard at the side
the same arch again!
the arch again!
a fascinating fountain!
The mood and atmosphere was exquisite !!! I’ll be posting a few pictures taken later that evening!!!
Till the next post!!
Have a wonderful weekend!
