Riot-Worthy Dish
Wine Enthusiast editors asked America's 100 Best Wine Restaurants of 2013 "which dish would start a riot if it was taken off the menu?" Their riot-worthy dish is…
"Because the menu items change regularly with the season, there are no signature dishes per se, although the carola potato cooked in beeswax, potato purée with crème fraîche, potato “gravel” with sorrel nori is a standout dish."

Perfect Pairing
The carola potato dish and Failla’s 2011 Haynes Vineyard Chardonnay makes for an ideal pairing.

Wine Events
“The Twelve Days of Christmas at Meadowood Napa Valley” involves 12 influential chefs cooking in collaboration with Chef Christopher Kostow, paired with 12 legendary Napa Valley vintners to create 12 holiday dinners during the month of December.


Wine Enthusiast Magazine announced the third annual issue of America's best wine-centric establishments, and to commemorate the list, WE hosted a rooftop party where we honored this year's recipients and toasted the exploding culture of wine and food.
