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 weave a narrative only they can tell. The Restaurant kitchen, acreage of Meadowood and its surrounding gardens and vineyards will serve as a meeting ground for shared ideas and cross fertilization.

The Restaurant at Meadowood also wishes to thank our 2014 partners for their continued support of our holiday tradition: United for flying our guest chefs to the Napa Valley; Napa Valley Tours & Transportation, Schramsberg Vineyards and Cayson Designs.
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.
