Aria (room 4, 7, 8, and 15) - Main House

$249.00 / $349.00 night

Aria is Italian for air, essential for growing wine grapes and keeping people alive and well. Each evening, air from the ocean flows up the Napa Valley, cooling the grape vines and helping them ripen. The cool evening air is also a favorite for locals and visitors—there is nothing quite like walking into town for dinner at the end of a sunny day and feeling the soft, cool breezes. Wrapped in soft shades of yellow and cream, this small room has a romantic, queen-sized featherbed which pretty much takes up the entire room! Relax to music, or watch a movie on the small screen HDTV. Enjoy the romantic glow of flames from the flickering gas fireplace. Each aria room has a private bath, wrapped in soothing aqua tones. The bath features an air tub, which offers an effervescent way to take a bath! Bubble your cares away in the spa tub, or take a shower in the tub/shower combination -- there's room for two! Room Features: Queen featherbed, armoire, 1 dresser, no closet, fireplace, small screen HDTV/DVD system, large spa tub and separate 2-person shower, wireless high-speed Internet access.
$249-349 per night, plus taxes/charges

$169.00 / $299.00 night

Sole is the Italian word for sun, another essential element for growing wine grapes. The sunny weather in Napa helps the vines grow vigorously and makes the grapes very happy.

It is typically only suitable for one or two night stays, as it has minimal space for luggage. There is a small armoire and one dresser for clothes (no closet). Sink back into the romantic, queen sized featherbed and feel a deep sense of relaxation. Snuggle under the covers and listen to music or watch a movie on the 32" HDTV/DVD system.
