Carneros Inn is a wonderful location to have a wedding. It's not only beautiful and has a beautiful view of the wine country from the ceremony location, but it has so many other wonderful things about it. Our ceremony was in the apple orchard, overlooking the Napa Valley in the background. Our cocktail hour was in a courtyard with fig trees surrounding it. And the reception and dancing was in one of the ballrooms (you can use the two ballrooms available, but we want to have everything in one room).

First off, they have an onsite bridal specialist (Brooke Baglietto)--she is warm, fun, and really knows her stuff. She was a tremendous draw to having a wedding at The Carneros Inn. She provided a list with vendors (all of the ones I worked with were fantastic), and she was there to help answer questions. On the day of the wedding itself, she helped orchestrate everyone and everything smoothly. She really helped make the planning process easier. Overall, the staff at The Carneros Inn is top-notch and very accommodating.

On top of Brooke, another plus is this place actually serves hard alcohol and lets you play music until 11pm (and still hang out afterwards). Most places in wine country make you serve exclusively their wine and kick you out at 10.

The food is prepared by the chefs at The Farm--the food and appetizers were incredible.

I had my hair and makeup done by the team at The Carneros Inn Spa. Jeannie Jarnot, the manager--was great to work with, and she has a great team.

Several of our family members and guests stayed onsite--the facilities are wonderful. But the location is also great because (a) if you have family and friends from SF or the East Bay, it's a relatively short drive; and (b) there are a bunch of hotels in nearby downtown Napa in a range of price points.

I would highly recommend The Carneros Inn. (For weddings with about 80 people, there's the Hilltop venue, which looks stunning)

The Carneros Inn was an amazing venue to be married at. The apple orchard for our ceremony was perfect. The courtyard is one of the most beautiful places with fig trees lining the area. The ballrooms allowed me to have one feel for the dinner and another for the dancing. The food is amazingly good. The wine list was very good and matched perfectly with the food. The resort is an elegant place to stay and our guests loved the whole experience. The best part of the site was working with Brooke Baglietto who is the on site wedding specialist. She is an expert at her job and helped with making sure that every detail went off that day without a hitch.

The Carneros Inn is an amazing place to be married. The location, the food were simply the best. Also they have Brooke Baglietto - wedding specialist - who is absolutely the most helpful person. She had great suggestions for ideas on how to make the day perfect. She sealed the deal for us because she was so fantastic!

I love The Carneros Inn (TCI). And when I say that, I really do mean I love this place because this was where my husband and I ultimately chose to hold our nuptials.

TCI is a tremendous and stunning resort that is completely unique to Napa.
It's clearly an aesthetically gorgeous property set amongst the rolling hills of Napa and is impeccably maintained from their rooms to each part of their 27 acre grounds. (Style wise, if you don't like sophisticated rustic (e.g. bocce ball courts, open-air fire-place lounging, farm-inspired cottages)...then, that's a different story and preference).

But what I believe gives this particular accommodation-write up of mine a bit more credibility than some of my other hotel reviews is the fact that my husband and I came to really know this place through our meticulous research & numerous site visits (more than 4 separate overnight stays/visits in 1 year to TCI alone...as well as to other Napa resorts).
Of all of our interactions, visits, conversations, and the actual wedding... we have never once been disappointed.

Part of the reason we love this place so much, arguably even more than the aesthetics, is because of their tremendous & incredibly approachable team (from their reservations office to their groundskeepers...we even met by chance the ever charismatic general manager, Philip Kendall). Per our wedding, the entire TCI team was on the ball - especially TCI's wedding specialist, Brooke Baglietto.

Without her, our wedding could not have been the same. She is one of the few people in the [SF/Napa wedding] industry that actually seemed to genuinely care about us as a bride & groom (occasionally we came across wedding professionals that were a bit dismissive of our small wedding size (not everyone has a sky-is-the-limit budget...) or did not seem earnest in their efforts to do their utmost (as far as what you would typically expect from a good planner) for our wedding), was able to execute with absolute finesse and is very grounded. Brooke was definitely THE example of how exceptional TCI's team is, and I doubt any other part of the TCI team would be anything other than stellar.

As far as food goes, whether it's fine dinning at the Hilltop dining room or grabbing a quick sandwich from Market, we have had great experiences and always enjoy our meals. To applaud them further, they actually surprised me with how great our food was at our wedding. One of the the biggest challenges for food anywhere is often serving large groups of people and having quality control. They did not disappoint at all. In fact it is one of the few parts of our wedding that our friends still cannot stop talking about (e.g. we've converted some of our friends to be avid lamb lovers after serving TCI lamb chops at cocktail hour, while a few other friends are obsessed over finding the same gnocchi which they had a herb sage butter version at Hilltop, amongst a slew of other gourmet courses served). It really stood out, and not just because it was my wedding night. For me, I would certainly make an effort to come out and chill at the FARM for dinner & drinks, even if I was not staying overnight at the resort.

Last but not least, $$$. The Carneros Inn is by no means cheap', from their drool-worthy and breath-taking views of the valley to their price tag. But, it's every bit worth the stay if you were banking on a top-notch Napa-chic luxury resort and can swing the bill. For my husband and I, TCI's up there with the likes of other great Napa establishment (e.g. Thomas Keller's French Laundry, Auberge du Soleil, etc) -- a terrific place to splurge & celebrate.
