Luxury travel isn’t just my business, it’s my passion.  This past year has been a challenge on both fronts, but finally, we’re seeing a light at the end of the tunnel when it comes to hitting the road again.  One of the first places I hope to visit is California’s Napa Valley: exceptional dining, private wine tastings, 5-star accommodations, gorgeous vistas.  Whether you are ready to travel soon or are planning a trip for the future, get ready for phenomenal food, stunning scenery, and world-famous wines, Napa Valley’s claim to fame.

A stellar resort

1. Auberge du Soleil

According to Renee Risch, the Director of Sales and Marketing, “The grounds at Auberge are inspired by the south of France and infused with Napa Valley.”  The Auberge du Soleil five-star adults-only resort stands above the rest. The luxury resort, nestled into the hillside, overlooks famous Napa Valley vineyards. Opulent in every way, the staff is amicable, professional and intuitive; they seem to know what you want before you even ask.
