Warm and Welcoming – Silverado Resort is Napa’s Number One Playground

Silverado Resort and its golf courses have served as a California landmark for more than 65 years. A symbol of Napa Valley, this gracious resort has long been a favorite and picturesque venue for meetings, weddings, and special events, and its golf facilities have made it one of Northern California’s best spots for teeing- off. But this iconic resort, surrounded by Napa’s majestic mountains, anchored  by its stately mansion, and featuring a robust social community, offers so much more.

One need not be a golfer  to  appreciate the serenity of the two championship courses that surround the 1,200-acre property and its expansive grounds. And one need not be a hotel guest to enjoy many  of  its  amenities.  The  resort  boasts 10  Plexipaved© tennis  courts,  a resort swimming pool  (one  surrounded by luxe cabanas), the Grill restaurant, the Mansion Bar and Market, a 16,000 square foot spa with exercise facilities, and a full- service salon. Despite perceptions to the contrary, each of these amenities – and others – can be enjoyed by Napa  residents and non-guests. Silverado offers a multitude of summer events sure to lure the locals who are invited to book their staycation and play the role of backyard tourists or to simply partake in scheduled celebrations, special events, and everyday activities such as:



Indulge in an exquisite dinner prepared by Silverado’s award-winning Executive Chef Rodrigo Cuadra, paired with wines from some of Napa Valley’s premier vintners such as William and Elana Hill, Mira, among others. Each unique Winemaker Dinner is an experience not to miss. For current 2020 schedule, please call or consult the website.


Brunch on the Green is a sumptuous affair offered on the third Sunday of each month. Enjoy bottomless mimosas and buffet-style stations of seasonal and locally sourced favorites. Gastronomes can delight in a carving station, a raw bar with freshly shucked oysters, an avocado toast station, whole roasted heritage pig, and sous vide  short  ribs. Also featured are vegan-friendly dishes, as well as delectable sweet treats to pamper every palate. Coming in 2021. Please inquire with the resort for the current schedule.
