The Fine Art of Auburn, CA

Auburn, the beautiful town I call home, was recently featured in an article naming it The Best Town in Northern California and I couldn’t agree more!

For those who may not know, Auburn is a small (but not too small!) town located in the heart of Gold Country, just a short drive northeast of Sacramento. A real “Gateway to the Sierras” if you will.

It’s unique in its ability to combine “the best of urban living, rural life, and small town charm” better than most towns.

I moved here about 5 years ago and felt it checked a lot of the boxes on my list. I wanted a vibe like Midtown Sacramento, art, music, etc. but a little closer to nature - and wine!

Speaking of wine, something they do not mention in the article, but I think is worth a BIG nod, is one of my favorite watering holes, Carpe Vino.

In keeping with the unique Auburn aesthetic, they describe themselves as “a blue-collar group with the aim of keeping our approach to fine dining and wine service simple and elegant.” I couldn’t have put it better myself.
