Patchett Salon

Every great gathering should have an inspired start — and the Patchett Salon is just such a space. Wine pioneer John Patchett (1797 - 1876) was the first person to plant a vineyard (just a few blocks from Archer) and build a wine cellar for commercial use in the Napa Valley. 

The Salon named in his honor is ideal for intimate gatherings: executive retreats, private dinners or a toast to all those who made the valley the destination it is today.

Something Extra

This special salon has special access to the Balcony, a private perch overlooking Archer's atrium and lobby. A perfect spot to toast Mr. Patchett.

Krug Salon

Wine pioneer John Patchett hired Charles Krug in 1858 as his winemaker. Both are unsung heroes of the Napa Valley wine tradition — with roots literally planted here in downtown Napa.
