Saying I DO – You can exchange vows in an apple orchard with expansive rolling hills and vineyard views as your backdrop. And then take a stroll to your intimate dinner event up at Hilltop with breathtaking views of the valley, or wow your many guests with a stunning event in the contemporary ballroom space. All of this within walking distance, no juggling cars or transportation between venues.

The Location – The Carneros Inn is the closest luxury resort in the Napa Valley to San Francisco and both SFO and OAK airports. With a quick 45-50 minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge and an hour from Sacramento.

The Food – All food and beverage service is overseen by esteemed Executive Chef, Steven Tevere, who has designed seasonal menus that highlight the bounty of the Napa Valley region with many of the ingredients coming from the on-site garden. This is not “banquet” food coming off of an assembly line. This is thoughtfully prepared dishes made with the freshest ingredients by a talented culinary team.
