Owner description: At Long Meadow Ranch Winery we produce and purvey our wines from two locations in the Napa Valley: our 650-acre home ranch, which we call the Mayacamas Estate, and our 90-acre Rutherford Estate in the heart of the Rutherford AVA, which includes vineyards and production vegetable gardens. Our 650-acre historic Mayacamas Estate is nestled high atop the Mayacamas Mountains above the Napa Valley. Here we produce award-winning red wines and handcrafted extra virgin olive oils - as well as grass-fed beef, eggs, and heirloom fruits and vegetables. Our family - Ted, Laddie, and Christopher Hall - has re-established 16 acres of vineyards first planted on the Mayacamas Estate in the 1870s and we have resumed producing estate-bottled red wine from this distinctive mountain "terroir." In plain sight from the Mayacamas Estate high above, the 90-acre Rutherford Estate is located on the floor of the Napa Valley in the heart of the world famous Rutherford AVA. It is situated among some of Rutherford's most celebrated historic vineyards. We grow extraordinary Sauvingon Blanc, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes in 74 acres of vineyard.

“Farmstead Restaurant: Cozy, candlelit, fab!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2011

Really great restaurant just outside of downtown St. Helena. The atmosphere is cozy and relaxed, the service was perfect, the food was excellent and wine was fairly priced. We tried a few dishes and they were very creative, with fresh veggies and herbs. Highly recommend a dinner inside the candlelit restaurant, or outside in the garden!

“Amazing down-home appetizers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2011

We only stopped for appetizers and some wine but it was a highlight of our trip! Getting seated outdoors in the rocking chairs and lounge area was fabulous way to relax after a day of wine-tasting and just be able to enjoy the beautiful setting of the farmstead property. The indoor décor was also noted and adorable down to the corrugated barn siding used for indoor walls. Our servers were very friendly and informative in their plaid get-ups. The appetizers we order were absolutely scrumptious, including the meatballs, biscuits, grits, potatoes, heirloom tomatoes, potted pot with homemade mustard, and salmon pate. We wished we had fit in an entire meal in our schedule after leaving this place! We’ll be back next time…

“Great food, bad wine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2011

Lunch at Farmstead with friends was interesting and tasty across the board. Very inventive and unique offerings, even the burger had a unique cheese. Highly recommend the restaurant.

We were given tokens to use for the tasting next door. The entire flight was below average and the pourer wasn't that knowledgeable.

Stick to their food

“Favorite meal in the Valley”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2011

You must visit Farmstead on your trip to Napa! The restaurant offers a modern atmosphere with absolutely amazing food (and wine obviously... Long Meadow Ranch is wonderful). Service is great, scenery is beautiful and food could not be better!
