About the Long Meadow Ranch Tasting Room and Farmstead Restaurant

This is the Long Meadow Ranch Tasting Room in St. Helena. The tasting room is located in the historic Logan-Ives House built in 1874. There is also a small café and general store in the Logan-Ives House. There are two tastings: For $15 a tasting  of the current release of varietal wines is offered, plus a tasting of the Long Meadow Ranch olive oil. For $25 per person, an estate series of wines are offered as well as the olive oil. We found the Sauvignon Blanc to be our favorite wine of the tasting session for $15.

Adjacent to the  Long Meadow Ranch tasting room is their Farmstead Restaurant where we enjoyed a leisurely lunch time meal. The restaurant features farm to table ingredients from local purveyors, as well as the Farmstead vegetable garden. Dairy products and grass-fed beef come from the Long Meadow Ranch estate in the Mayacamus Mountains. Janelle enjoyed a delicious grilled chicken salad while I had a pulled pork sandwich. The pork had been smoked for 12 hours. The pulled pork sandwich came with a creamy potato salad. The meal was quite scrumptious.

The wine list is extensive featuring Long Meadow Ranch wines as well as other Napa Valley vintners and a few from other wine regions. The wines are priced on the high side. For example, the Long Meadow Ranch Sauvignon Blanc was $54 on the wine list. I have seen the S.B. for less than $20 in wine shops. Overall, the Farmstead Restaurant is excellent. The restaurant is very busy, so be sure to call ahead for a reservation.

Note: If you enjoy a meal at the restaurant, be sure to get a chip good for a two-for-one tasting at the Long Meadow Ranch tasting room.
