I was told by several people that if I had the opportunity to just sit outside at the Bistro and Bar at Auberge du Soleil with a glass of wine, I had to take it. After touring Schramsburg, my group of four needed to find a place for a light lunch. We decided to do as we were told and visit Auberge. When we pulled into the driveway of the hotel, it was a tight fit. I told my husband that I had just read (within minutes of arriving to the hotel) on TA that it would be all valet parking. He rolled the window down, and I told the man we were having lunch at the Bistro (I am glad I knew the name, since I felt like I had to have a purpose for being there and wanted to seem like I knew what we were doing there). He took the keys and the car. Painless. You cannot see the hotel from the front, and now I wish I had explored it more to get the views of it from the pool area. It is stunning.
We were fortunate to get a table on the balcony within minutes (otherwise, it just wouldn't have been the same experience--inside, the bar is dark and without the amazing view). We ordered delicious house red and white wine, padron peppers (we ate these throughout Spain and now at any tapas restaurant we can get them at, and these were outstanding), french fries--yes, to go with the wine (excellent), and lightly breaded, delicious calamari. The service, view, and altogether atmosphere are all superior at Auberge du Soleil.
