  • RUTHERFORD, Calif. (May 8, 2018) —Auberge du Soleil, the quintessential Napa Valley adult getaway, is partnering with celebrated natural skincare brand, Vintner’s Daughter, to elevate the facial experience at the award-winning Auberge du Soleil Spa. Vintner’s Daughter’s coveted product, Active Botanical Serum, will be showcased in the Spa’s indulgent “Best of Auberge” facial treatment for the first time. The luxurious multi-correctional serum enhances the results-driven facial with nutrient-rich botanicals and powerful skin renewing agents to promote an instant, long-lasting glow while stimulating cellular turnover and skin elasticity. This exclusive partnership between Auberge du Soleil and Vintner’s Daughter is the skincare brand’s first and only spa partnership in Napa Valley.
  • “We’ve found an ideal partner for the Auberge du Soleil Spa in Vintner’s Daughter – both are deeply rooted in Napa Valley and committed to extending the most effective and luxurious skin care service possible,” said George Goeggel, Managing Partner at Auberge Du Soleil. “We are delighted to be the only spa in Wine Country to share Active Botanical Serum with our guests. In addition, we know the experience will be further elevated by the dedicated training and techniques Vintner’s Daughter has provided to our talented estheticians to ensure guests receive the optimal benefits of the serum and the service.”
  • Auberge du Soleil and Vintner’s Daughter share a common ethos and commitment to utilizing Napa Valley’s bounty for indigenous inspiration and ingredients for their products and spa treatments. Further, both brands are aligned in their commitment to providing quality processes and elevated spa experiences for guests and wellness aficionados.
  • “As someone whose heart has always been in Napa, I am thrilled to bring the beauty-boosting power of Active Botanical Serum to the Auberge du Soleil Spa,” said April Gargiulo, Founder of Vintner’s Daughter. “Our serum pairs perfectly with the Best of Auberge facial, and I’m excited for guests of the Spa to experience true radiance as a result of this special service.”
  • Inspired by fine winemaking, Vintner’s Daughter introduced the world’s most nutrient-dense serum featuring whole botanicals that infuse their powerful properties through time-honored formulation practices. Founder April Gargiulo, a Napa Valley native who hails from the Gargiulo Vineyards family, has extended the quality and artisanship of her heritage to her own entrepreneurial effort. The brand’s “desert-island” hero product, Active Botanical Serum, was developed around exceptional ingredient sourcing, meticulous formulation methods and multi-correctional performance.
  • Similarly, the Auberge Du Soleil Spa utilizes ingredients sourced from the destination’s plentiful vineyards, olive groves and gardens to inspire its indulgent treatment offerings. Temperate soaking pools offer captivating views of the valley while the central courtyard showcases picturesque French-inspired fountains anchored by 100-year-old olive trees. Reflecting the relaxed sophistication of Auberge du Soleil, the Spa’s mission is to provide each guest with an opportunity to reconnect with themselves and nature in an intimate and rejuvenating environment.
