A Weekend in Wine Country


Farmstead has climbed to the top of my list of favorite restaurants in Napa Valley. Farmstead is located in St. Helena on the Long Meadow Ranch Winery.

The ambiance and service is stellar, where you don’t even notice you are sitting in a renovated barn. Their farm-to-table concept helps patrons appreciate the freshness of ingredients locally produced.

The dishes speak for themselves, but our group ordered Farmstead’s signature Cheeseburger with a Farm Egg on top as an appetizer along with their soup of the day, duck and sausage gumbo, and Beef Carpaccio. Also, if you’re an egg connoisseur, you can add a farm egg to anything for $3.00.

I’m usually not a big fan of chocolate cream pie, but this was the best piece of chocolate pie I’ve ever had in my life.
