The Twelve Days of Christmas® at Meadowood Napa Valley
Posted June 25, 2013
The Nation’s Only 12-Day Charitable Food & Wine Celebration
St. Helena, Calif. – June 25, 2013

Hosted by Chef Christopher Kostow and The Restaurant at Meadowood team, the country’s singular twelve-day, charitable food and wine celebration: The Twelve Days of Christmas® will return for its sixth season, December 6 through 21. Eleven influential chefs will once again cook in collaboration with Chef Kostow and each will be paired with one of twelve legendary vintners. Begin your experience relaxing in one of our newly remodeled guest rooms before enjoying an exclusive holiday feast. The Twelve Days package includes one night’s lodging in a beautifully appointed room at Meadowood and dinner seating for two: beginning $1315 for weekday events and $1390 for Friday and Saturday events.

Since 2008, The Twelve Days of Christmas has raised more than $230,000 to help combat childhood hunger in America in partnership with esteemed national organization, Share Our Strength®. This year, the celebration will benefit two Napa Valley charitable organizations with the goal of making a positive impact on local families in need: The Holly Cranston Foundation, dedicated to helping children with disabilities and their families; and the Napa Emergency Women’s Services (NEWS), which provides a nurturing refuge for women and children suffering from domestic violence.

Each year Chef Christopher Kostow seeks out and invites those chefs both here and abroad who speak to a positive, personal and dynamic way of cooking. The Restaurant kitchen and beautiful acreage of Meadowood and its surrounding gardens and vineyards serve as a meeting ground for shared ideas and cross fertilization. This year Chef Kostow continues the tradition of liaising with The Culinary Institute of America to bring some of the guest chefs to the west coast campus in St. Helena as a way of broadening The Twelve Days of Christmas circle of sharing and collaboration.

The Restaurant at Meadowood Debuts New Features for 2013
Posted March 6, 2013
ST. HELENA, Calif. – March 4, 2013 – The Restaurant at Meadowood has several new features to offer guests in 2013. The new reveals include: a sheltered entry and expanded bar; a private dining room seating up to twelve guests; an interior wine cellar; additional custom-designed furnishings and art pieces; and new restrooms.

On the inspiration behind the recent additions, Restaurant Director Nathaniel Dorn says, “The projects we completed during the last couple of months were primarily designed to enhance our guests’ comfort, enjoyment and sense of discovery. We delved deeper into our relationships with a few of our existing artisans and craftsmen and forged several exciting new partnerships as well.”

The new entry and expanded bar area, designed by noted architect Howard Backen, features a twenty-foot beamed ceiling, fieldstone walls, two fireplaces, large windows and a polished concrete-and-wood floor. Craftsman Michael Capp worked with Dorn to execute his designs for new dining tables for both The Restaurant dining room and the bar. The table tops are crafted of limestone while the bases feature cast iron steel and 100-year-old wood salvaged from a bridge in British Columbia. Suspended custom ceramic tiles by local artist Richard Carter add warmth and texture to the room and are positioned to add interest to the overhead space. Fabric colors feature shades of gray and subtle pin striping in keeping with the accents in the dining room.

In addition to the beautiful new space with seating for 18, guests will also find snacks from Chef Christopher Kostow and The Restaurant at Meadowood culinary team offered at $20 per person. The bar will be open Monday through Saturday evenings from 5:00 p.m. to midnight with wines available by the glass or bottle and an array of traditional and signature cocktails.

Another new culinary debut occurs at the actual bar itself, where guests will now be able to enjoy a three-course menu each evening priced at $90 per person. The menu will change nightly and guests are encouraged to call ahead to reserve space as seats at the bar are limited. “This new three-course menu was largely inspired by the members of our local community who enjoy coming into The Restaurant mid-week,” says Dorn. “We have a good many vintners, for example, who’ve told us they’d like to come into The Restaurant at the end of the day for a lighter meal and some good conversation. So, we’ve created that opportunity for them.”

The new private dining room was created in response to the growing number of larger parties inquiring about dining in The Restaurant. “Increasingly,” says Dorn, “we have guests who want to hold special celebrations in The Restaurant. This space, which overlooks a small, private garden, will be perfect for gatherings of friends or family members celebrating special occasions. It’s also ideal for members of our local vintner community wishing to host private dinners featuring their wines alongside Christopher’s menus.”

Finally, in the dining room, wine enthusiasts are likely to delight in the new Thomas Warner-designed wine cellar. Crafted entirely of rich walnut the cellar fills the space of the original four-seat private dining room. Says Dorn, “We’re excited to have our extensive wine collection located in the dining room where it will be close at hand for both our staff and our guests.”

Hickory Golf at Meadowood
Posted June 13, 2008
Meadowood Relives the Legend of Bagger Vance
Golf Enthusiasts Play Nine Holes with Hickory Stick Clubs

Meadowood brings the Legend of Bagger Vance to the fairways with the Hickory Stick Golf

Join Meadowood Golf Pro Doug Pike and play nine or 18 holes using authentic hickory shafted clubs and replica gutty golf balls, all of which were used from the late 1800's to the 1930's.

In 1850, the Scottish found that hickory from the Unites States, which at the time was being imported into Scotland for ax and rake handles, made the very best golf club shaft material; with its light, springy feel, it far surpassed the more flexible ash shafts.

The "gutty" ball was also introduced around 1850. Brought from the British West Indies, this ball was crafted from the sap of rubber trees. It was immune to water damage and it bounced like crazy.

"Swinging the hickories is like taking a rubber stick and whipping it through the air. You have to keep your feet on the ground and use your hands to help square the clubface," says Pike.

"The honor, integrity and tradition of games past are what make the sport of golf so great. The attire was more formal, the people were very respectful and the imagination required to play well was astounding," Pike concludes.

Meadowood is situated in the heart of Napa Valley, one mile east from downtown St. Helena and 18 miles north of Napa. The property, set in a wooded two hundred-fifty acre valley is reminiscent of a private estate in a bygone era, with championship croquet lawns, a nine-hole walking golf course, tennis courts, hiking trails, swimming, a health spa, guest rooms and fine dining in The Restaurant at Meadowood.
