The Twelve Days of Christmas at Meadowood, Napa Valley

Located just off of the historic Silverado Trail in St. Helena, California, Meadowood Resort in Napa Valley is sharing its exquisite chefs for twelve days over Christmas to give back to children less fortunate.

For twelve nights, Meadowood will have twelve world renowned chefs collaborating with twelve of Napa Valley’s preeminent vintners to cook for very small and intimate groups.
