The Twelve Days of Christmas
Each year we seek out and invite those chefs both here and abroad who speak to a positive, personal and dynamic way of cooking; chefs whose restaurants and work tell a narrative that only they can tell. The Restaurant kitchen and acreage of Meadowood and its surrounding gardens and vineyards will serve as a meeting ground for shared ideas and cross fertilization.
In December 2013 we celebrated the 6th anniversary of The Twelve Days of Christmas with these chefs and vintners.

In 2011 we expanded our gardening program through St. Helena Montessori, a local school focused on experiential learning where students connect with the community's agricultural roots.
Our new gift certificates are a beautiful thing to give and receive. Gift certificates may be purchased in any denomination or for a particular Restaurant experience.
Among the talented people we continue to meet in the Napa Valley are a group of amazing artisans working in ceramics. There are several whose work we love. Lynn Mahon is one of our favorites.
