The 12 Feasts of Christmas

What do you get when you combine world famous chefs, The Restaurant at Meadowood, and Napa Valley’s top wine makers? Twelve chef-vintner combinations creating unique holiday meals that will sate the harshest of critic and raise money for charity.

Meadowood’s The 12 Days of Christmas 2013 is expanding its international influence from last year with a new set of chefs and vintners – proving that different can be equally amazing.

This year’s 12 Days begins on December 6th and extends to the 21st. Participating chefs include: Rodolfo Guzman of Boragó, Santiago, Chile; Chef Ashley Christensen from Poole’s Diner, Raleigh, NC; Rasmus Kofoed from Geranium, Copenhagen, Denmark; and David Kinch of Manresa, Los Gatos, CA. The 2013 wineries include: SCRIBE Winery, Checkerboard Vineyards, Antinori Family Estate, and Harlan Estate.

If you want to experience an expanded menu and the action of the kitchen, a limited number of Chef’s Counter tickets are available for each meal.

In the true spirit of the season, Meadowood is donating $2000 in honor of each chef as well as 20%of all dinner tickets sold. The Holly Cranston Memorial Fund and the Napa Emergency Women’s Services will share the donation evenly.

By providing both financial support and guidance, the Holly Cranston Memorial Fund (HCMF) focuses on helping local children with disabilities and their families. Primarily, HCMF targets families with needs not currently met by traditional sources of support.

The mission of Napa Emergency Women’s Services (NEWS) is to provide “a nurturing refuge for women and children suffering from domestic violence and/or sexual assault … [and act as] a catalyst for change through prevention, intervention and advocacy.”
