SOLAGE CALISTOGA WINS HOSPITALITY DESIGN AWARD FOR GREEN DESIGN
Posted November 11, 2008
CALISTOGA, CALIF. (July 7, 2008) " Recognizing the forward-thinking and
environmentally minded vision of Solage Calistoga, Hospitality Design magazine
has honored the resort with its 2008 award for Green Design. Solage and the
other winners of the 2008 HD Awards were selected from more than 400 entries by
a team of distinguished architecture and design industry leaders. The winners, in
categories ranging from resort and spa design to luxury hotel, were celebrated at
a recent ceremony in New York City and are featured in the current issue of the
magazine.

Solage Calistoga was conceived to prove that luxury, sustainability and
great design can happily coexist, said Mark Harmon, CEO and Managing Partner,
Auberge Resorts, the hotel developer and operator behind the new Solage brand.
We are fortunate to have worked with such talented partners as architect
Howard Backen and Dowling Kimm Studios to help us bring our vision for this
new breed of resort to life.

The first property from Auberge Resorts new Solage Hotels & Resorts
brand, the 89-room cottage-style resort and spa was designed by Backen to
maximize its valley setting and take advantage of natural heating and cooling
opportunities. Features such as solar panels and exaggerated eaves help
moderate temperatures on warm afternoons and minimize energy usage. Tall,
shaded windows and doorways offer views out to private gardens, filling spaces
with filtered sunlight and keeping interiors cool.

San Francisco design team Dowling Kimm Studios sourced contemporary
furnishings made from natural, sustainably farmed and recycled materials for
Solages earth-friendly interiors. Guestrooms feature walnut and beech furniture
manufactured with non-toxic varnishes and wool upholstery. Natural accents
include hemp curtains, wool throws, stone countertops and pebbled showers.
Public spaces and Spa Solage feature bamboo and reclaimed cedar, and interiors
throughout the resort are finished with non-toxic, low-VOC paints.
A member of the Green Hotels Association, Solage Calistoga proves that offering
guests a fun and luxurious getaway and sustainability go hand in hand. Making
innovative use of Calistogas famed hot springs as an alternative energy source,
the resort taps the geothermal springs deep beneath the property for radiant
energy to heat the treatment rooms and soaking pools at the 20,000-square-foot
Spa Solage.

From the use of bicycles for room service, alternative energy sources,
energy-efficient lighting, environmentally safe Method cleaning products to
locally sourced food, drought-resistant landscaping, recycling and water
reclamation, Solages philosophy of eco-consciousness is visible in all areas of
resort operation and encompass not only environmental stewardship but also the
personal health and well being of staff and guests.
Solage Calistoga is a member of the Green Hotels Association. For more

SOLBAR AT SOLAGE CALISTOGA BRINGS A FRESH CULINARY EXPERIENCE TO NAPA VALLEY
Posted May 20, 2008
Casual Gathering Place for Drinks and Dining in an Indoor/Outdoor Setting

CALISTOGA, CALIFORNIA " Solbar, the centerpiece restaurant at the Solage Calistoga resort, offers a new interpretation of wine country cuisine in a decidedly relaxed environment. Open to resort guests and visitors of the Napa Valley, the stylish and inviting bistro showcases the talents of rising chef Brandon Sharp in a contemporary indoor-outdoor setting.

We are excited to introduce Solbar and bring something entirely different to Napa Valley " a comfortably cool environment where people can relax, unwind and let time slip away as they enjoy great conversation and great food, said Richard Hill, General Manager of Solage Calistoga.

Leading Solbars culinary team is Executive Chef Brandon Sharp, whose pedigree includes tenures at Michelin-starred Gary Danko in San Francisco, Restaurant August in New Orleans, and the world-renowned French Laundry in Napa Valley. Sharp offers a dichotomous menu of healthy and nourishing sol food side-by-side with down home comfort food. Signature first bites include HearthBaked Sea Salt Flatbread Served with Four Sol Spreads and Agnolotti of Homemade Ricotta Cheese Tossed with White Corn, Brown Butter and Forni Brown Spinach and entrees, such as Gently Cooked Pacific Halibut with Baby Spinach, White Corn, Sweet 100 Tomatoes and Basil and Beef Shortribs Stroganov with Egg Noodles, Horseradish and Maitake Mushroom.

Food and Beverage Director Matthew Brown, formerly of Bungalow 44 and Buckeye Roadhouse in Mill Valley, California, assembled a wine list that complements Sharps regionally inspired seasonal cuisine along with the largest champagne list in the Napa Valley. He also created a selection of signature cocktails with fresh juices and local herbs and spices including the Hanalei Sunset featuring fresh ruby red grapefruit and the Ginger Strawberry Mojito made with fresh ginger and local strawberries.

San Francisco design firm Dowling Kimm Studios, former protges of Michael Graves, created a social setting that redefines what you expect to find in wine country. Lofty ceilings, large sliding glass doors that open to panoramic views of the Palisades Mountains, and a warm color palette inspired by the local landscape, give Solbar an atmosphere of contemporary, casual sophistication.

The 125-seat restaurant features earth-friendly interiors including tabletops made from reclaimed Douglas fir, sustainable wool and leather upholstered lounge furniture, and low-VOC paint to eliminate the harmful gases emitted by most conventional paints. The restaurant and lounge flows onto an outdoor patio offering al fresco drinks and dinner in the glow of a 20-foot fire pit.

Solbar is located at Solage Calistoga, an 89-room design-focused, environmentally conscious resort featuring a full-service spa offering treatments with a playful twist on Calistogas historic mud bath tradition as well as exclusive Kate Somerville facials, and a 130-foot swimming pool surrounded by cabanas. Designed by renowned Napa Valley architect Howard Backen, Solage Calistoga interprets the valleys rural heritage in a fresh style described as Napa Barn meets San Francisco loft. The resorts spacious rooms and suites " known as studios " were designed by Dowling Kimm Studios and feature open floor plans, warm color palates, stone showers with pebble flooring and contemporary furnishings. Perfect for couples, families, or groups, Solage Calistoga is a stylish yet welcoming destination.

Solbar is open daily for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. For more information or to make a reservation, please call 866-942-7442. The address is 755 Silverado Trail, Calistoga, Calif.
