This quintessential Napa Valley resort has  it all.   Silverado offers  within its 1,200 acres two championship golf courses, a world-class spa and tennis program, and numerous luxurious swimming pools. The award-winning culinary team, led by Executive Chef Rodrigo Cuadra, offers another reason to visit this iconic wine country destination: Brunch on the Green.

Featuring one of Napa Valley’s most extravagant spreads of delectable dishes, served in one of the area’s most picturesque settings, Silverado Resort’s Brunch on the Green is so much more than a meal. Each buffet-style station of seasonal and locally sourced favorites is more lavish than the  next.  Gastronomes  can   delight in a carving station, a raw bar with freshly shucked oysters, an avocado toast station, whole roasted heritage pig, and sous vide short ribs. Also featured are vegan-friendly dishes, as well as delectable sweet treats to pamper every palate. “You name it, we have it,” said Cuadra, who has been at the helm of the Silverado kitchen for nearly a year. The Miami native found his way to Napa after opening Sacramento’s state-of-the-art Golden One Center as executive sous chef in charge of the Arena’s premium outlets and club catering.

Cuadra is proud of Silverado’s elevated dining experiences, of which Brunch  on the Green is a personal favorite. “This is a destination brunch event to be enjoyed not only on special occasions but simply to celebrate this beautiful spot within the Valley,” said Cuadra. “Enjoy bottomless Mimosas, Bloody Mary cocktails, and live music while taking in the breathtaking views from our newly renovated Mansion terrace.”

Cuadra’s menus change seasonally based on what’s local, fresh, and abundant. He has built relationships with some of the area’s best purveyors who supply him with ingredients for not only their Brunch  on  the Green but for The Grill (the resort’s farm-to-fork dining spot) and The Mansion bar, where elevated small bite fare pairs perfectly with handcrafted cocktails.

This summer Chef Rodrigo is looking forward to hosting their winemaker dinner series, where he will be preparing menus to pair with wines from local vintners such as Mira and William and Elana Hill.

Many people don’t know that the dining scene at Silverado is open  to  the  public, as are many of the amenities throughout the resort. John Evans, Silverado Resort General Manager, said, “You do  not  need to live within the  Silverado  Community or be a member of the Silverado Country Club to access Silverado  Resort.  With  two championship golf courses, a PGA Tour event, tennis courts, a full-service spa and salon, fitness classes, a secluded pool,  and our  popular Grill and  Café,  we always welcome locals  and  visitors  to experience a new level of excellence throughout the property. We are especially proud to showcase our elevated food and beverage experiences. We invite everyone to come over to meet friends and gather for a cocktail or brunch on our Mansion Terrace, which we  fondly  refer to as the heart and soul of the resort.”

Brunch on the Green is hosted on the third Sunday of every month from 11 am- 3 pm.
