Located in the heart of Napa Valley, the five-building compound also includes a two-story stone Wine Vault at the Historic Ma(i)sonry Building, an outdoor Wine and Barista Bar, and two boutique design galleries – all connected by lush garden courtyards with outdoor living rooms that can be reserved for wine tastings, century-old French limestone fountains, globally-sourced antiques and artifacts, a 40-foot, live-edge single slab tasting table, fireplaces, and walking paths with decomposed granite and bluestone pavers.
A first-of-its-kind integration of food, wine, art and design, RH Yountville marks Chairman and CEO Gary Friedman’s ongoing collaboration with celebrated restaurateur and Founding President of RH Hospitality, Brendan Sodikoff, and award-winning design architect James Gillam of Backen & Gillam, recognized as one of Architectural Digest’s Top 100 architecture and design firms in the world.
“RH Yountville reflects our vision for creating inspiring spaces and authentic experiences that respect and amplify the local culture,” commented Gary Friedman, RH Chairman & CEO.
“This is an inherently personal project given our nearby headquarters in Marin County,” Mr. Friedman continued. “We’re humbled to introduce this new experience to Napa Valley – one of the most celebrated food and wine destinations in the world.”
Guests will enjoy Sodikoff’s seasonal, ingredient-driven menu sourced from neighboring farms, which features a selection of shareable boards such as Artisanal Prosciutto with garlic bread, Délice de Bourgogne Cheese with warm baguette, Raw Vegetable Crudité with buttermilk herb dipping sauce, Crispy Artichokes with roasted potatoes and rosemary aioli, and Avocado Toast on grilled sourdough. Salads include Italian Burrata with roasted tomatoes, Shaved Vegetables, Gem Lettuce, Arugula with shaved fennel, and a Kale Caesar. Mains include the Half Roasted Chicken with olive oil potato puree and natural jus served in a copper roaster; the Atlantic Dover-Sole with brown butter, lemon and parsley; a 14-oz Charred Ribeye Steak with house-cut fries and aioli, and Broiled Salmon with honey, black pepper, brown butter and lemon.
The menu also presents Sodikoff’s elevated take on timeless classics – such as the RH Burger, a Truffled Grilled Cheese on rustic sourdough, the Shaved Ribeye Sandwich on charred garlic bread with au jus, and the RH Scramble with crème fraîche, avocado and chives, also available with fresh shaved truffles.
"The Napa Valley has had a profound impact on the way I see the world," Sodikoff said. “I spent five years living in Yountville over two decades ago, and am grateful to return home to work on a project this inspiring, in a community that I have such fond memories of."
Originally home to one of Napa’s first vintners in the early 20th century, the landmark Ma(i)sonry building has been beautifully transformed into a two-story Wine Vault with a 24-foot cedar ceiling, rough-cut fieldstone walls, luxe lounge seating and a monumental limestone bar. By the taste, glass or bottle, visitors will discover a curated selection of rare, limited-production wines from some of the valley’s top small producers, as well as classic champagnes.
Adjacent to The Wine Vault at the Historic Ma(i)sonry Building is a Wine and Barista Bar serving craft espresso, teas, fresh cold-pressed juices and wines by the glass.
Sodikoff is also the founder, CEO and creative director of Hogsalt Hospitality, a rapidly growing restaurant group spanning 14 concepts and 15 locations. Hogsalt’s portfolio includes nationally acclaimed establishments Au Cheval, Doughnut Vault, Bavette’s and Gilt Bar, as well as his first restaurant in New York – 4 Charles Prime Rib, an intimate supper club in the West Village. Sodikoff has been named one of Chicago Magazine’s “100 Most Powerful People in Chicago” and one of Crain’s “40 Under 40.” He has also been recognized by Bon Appétit, Food & Wine and the Food Network, among others.
