We'd love it if you would mention that you found Brix on the Here Comes The Guide website.
Why We Like This Place
Brix may sit right on Napa Valley's main highway, but once you're inside you're in some sort of Wine Country Dreamtime where nothing matters except good food, good wine and the sharing of both with family and friends. (By the way, "Brix" is a term used by wine growers that refers to the percentage of sugar in ripening grapes.)
Brix is surrounded by vineyards, but behind the restaurant is a huge kitchen garden, formally laid out in the European style. Many of the fruits, vegetables and herbs used in Brix's cuisine are grown here—you frequently see a white-garbed sous-chef gathering ingredients for an order. Here, too, you can hold a ceremony amid the flowers and fruit, with a vista of the vineyards stretching out across the valley to the foot of the western mountains.
Intimate receptions often take place in the Oakville Room, a deliciously inviting space with an abundance of wood details that succeeds in being both elegant and informal. At the far end, a trompe l'oeil mural makes you think you're looking through a large picture window at an authentic Wine Country landscape. Along one side of the room, a grand mirror reflects the lovely scene on the opposite side: tall windows framing a serene view of the adjacent tree-filled patio.
The restaurant's largest event area is the Vineyard Reception Site. This al fresco space, which was literally carved out of the Kelleher Family Vineyards, enjoys sweeping views of nearby grapevines and the Mayacamas Mountains beyond—the quintessential Wine Country setting. Here, you're seated on Chiavari chairs at tables regally set with Riedel stemware, St. Andrea silverware and Villeroy & Boch bone china. The food, the service and the ambiance will make you feel totally pampered.
The secluded Cottage is perfect for a small reception or rehearsal dinner. In this cozy nest, guests dine at a long table where conversation is fueled by the delectable fare. French doors on the western wall open to a private patio, an ideal place to start your celebration off with cocktails and appetizers. It's also a heavenly spot for a little after-dinner unwinding—simply step outside to watch the sun set, smoke a cigar or savor the gorgeous scenery.
In addition to growing a significant percentage of the produce used in the restaurant, Brix bakes their own bread and smokes their own salmon. Other ingredients are procured in season, and as fresh as possible. The wine list is graced by some of Napa's most prestigious vintages—it annually wins the Wine Spectator Best of Award of Excellence and the International Restaurant & Hospitality Diamond Award.
Warm, relaxed and intimate: if these words describe the wedding your heart desires, Brix awaits you…
