The Napa Valley, a sophisticated corner of wine country where you will find an abundance of world class wine from a landscape of equal measure in beauty. And at Meadowood you’ll find these two features firmly in cahoots; an all-round luxury destination for travellers seeking an authentically Napa Valley experience. From the manicured croquet lawn to the wild woodlands beyond and the Michelin Star restaurant, Meadowood is a place that will sweep you off your feet.
Just north of Yountville is the quaint town of St. Helena. There you’ll find Meadowood nestled in a quiet forest just outside of town offering total seclusion from the outside world. This is an escape where you can succumb to a slower pace of life. The hotel has pretty much everything you could wish for – but you are also perfectly positioned to explore the local area. Visit some of the many wineries, drive to Lake Hennessy, Sugarloaf Ridge and Lake Berryessa, or pop into nearby St. Helena, where you can enjoy gourmet food markets and boutique shopping. It really is the best of both worlds.
The resort offers a selection of accommodation from cosy cottages, chic suites and spacious lodges – each elegantly finished with sumptuous fabrics, antique lamps and original artwork. A private terrace offers you the opportunity to contemplate your day quietly or enjoy an intimate dinner, and which ever accommodation you choose, you will have a romantic open fireplace where you can warm yourself up as the chillier evenings descend.
Why We Like It
Meadowood is all about the gourmet experience. Good wine may be obvious (you are in the heart of wine country after all) but the food here is some of the best you’ll find, with much of it grown in their very own gardens. Chef Kostow’s focus on using local products and working with some of the top local wine experts has earned him worldwide recognition with not just one, but three Michelin Stars. Indulge in an evening wine or cocktail reception sampling small plates and local tipples – or, dine in the restaurant for a meal expertly paired with the perfect whites or boldest of reds. Eat, drink and relax.
