Auberge du Soleil
It’s tough to top the balcony at Auberge, which is tucked into the mountain and grants some of the best views in Napa Valley. It’s the perfect setting for almost anything, from afternoon drinks to a long lunch, as long as the sun’s still out. The food is solid (always order the fries), but really, the views and the cocktails are the main attraction. Sure, you’ll wind up spending a few hundred dollars here, but you’re paying for the location of your chair, and it’s well worth it.
