The Lodge

With locally sourced ingredients from our abundant NorCal valley, Fernanda Trocca’s fine dining experience leverages the unstudied quality of open-fire cooking and bold flavors from Argentina and Uruguay. Serving both breakfast and dinner, The Lodge is a welcoming yet elevated venue to begin your day or dine as the sun descends over the hills to the West. Fresh juices, local wines, craft spirits, artisan beers, and vibrant cocktails.

The Patio

Our natural setting provides the perfect environment for celebration. From weddings to retreats, company outings to concerts, we’re elevating our traditions with both indoor and alfresco venues.
