Artist Jonah Ward
As in all aspects of The Restaurant, our motives in selecting art were centered in our sense of place. We hoped to collaborate with an artist who shared our passion for the surrounding property and Napa Valley and whose work gave the feeling of bringing the outside in, with texture and depth. We feel that we've achieved this in our partnership with Jonah Ward.
The Restaurant at Meadowood has the privilege of being surrounded by the creeks, woodlands and hillsides of St. Helena – all places redolent of wild edibles. The privilege of our locale enables us to utilize the natural bounty in creating an experience steeped in a sense of place.

“As a ceramic artist one wonders how to make a statement in a medium so steeped with history. The answer lies in individual expression.”
In 2011 we expanded our gardening program with land leased through St. Helena Montessori, an amazing local school focused on experiential learning. We started with half an acre and have the potential to expand the garden to three acres. All of the students are afforded direct access to the farm, where they connect with the agricultural roots of the Napa Valley community and the Montessori tradition of environmental awareness.
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've come to love because we're both facinated by their skill and inspired by the raw beauty of the pieces that emerge from their kilns. Lynn Mahon is one of our favorites.
