Somehow my photography skills seem to have made an extreme leap in professional quality between 2003 and 2006. These are atrocious! Alas – I had the opportunity to tour the grounds, dine in the Michelin starred restaurant and spend the night at the all new Auberge du Soleil when they first opened after their latest renovation. Updates included a new wine cellar, freshly planted vines, room decor redesign and other cosmetic uplifts. It was too cold to use the pool so a return for a little cross-pose swim is definitely in order!
