The hillside restaurant, overlooking Rutherford, opened to acclaim in 1981 and is now recognised as one of the region’s best fine dining establishments. It boasts more than 1,500 wines carefully curated by its wine director Kris Margerum with a focus on Napa. Today, the restaurant has spawned into a luxury estate boasting a number of suites, which first opened to guests in 1985, and an on-site spa.180 Rutherford Hill Road, Rutherford, CA 94573

    While the Bernardus is a lovely place to stay, it is not anywhere near Napa Valley. The heart of Napa is approximately 1.5 hours north of San Franciso. Carmel Valley, where the Bernardus is located, is approximately 2.5 hours south of San Francisco. How did the Bernardus end up in an article on the top places to stay in Napa!!!!
