Settled on a private estate, the Meadowood in St. Helena is a center of social, cultural and viticultural life in Napa Valley and a second home for those who enjoy the beauty and hospitality of the wine country. Reminiscent of a private estate in a bygone era, gracious hospitality defines the style of service and timeless, natural beauty the sense of place. The property features championship croquet lawns, seven tennis courts, a nine-hole walking golf course, hiking trails, swimming, a Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star spa, a wine education program and eighty-five cottages, suites and lodges settled along the forested hillsides of the property's private two hundred and fifty-acre valley. The resident sports professionals offering their expertise to guests are a croquet pro, a golf pro and a tennis pro. A sommelier engages guests in wine education, wine collecting and winery experiences based on his exclusive, insider's perspective on—and relationships within—the Napa Valley.
