Kitchens in the Vineyards
20th Anniversary Napa Valley Home & Garden Tour
April 28 & 29, 2017
Dear  , 

Something exciting is on its way to you! Next week check your mailbox for your invitation to the 20th Anniversary of our Kitchens in the Vineyards home and garden tour. Ticket sales are now underway for both Friday's Preview Party (4/28/17) and Saturday's self-guided home tour (4/29/17).

On this momentous year, tour five beautiful homes all located in St. Helena - four located within walking distance near the center of town, and a fifth estate residence a short drive away. Homes are styled by professional designers and florists whose talents highlight each home's unique character with the bounty of spring. This year's anniversary tour delights with a mix of both smaller and estate residences, and focuses on statement kitchens, outdoor entertaining, published design, and Napa Valley living at its finest. Take a sneak peek at this year's stunning homes below!

At each tour home, meet chefs & enjoy tastings from these beloved restaurants:
Angèle, Azzurro Pizzeria e Enoteca, Celadon, Fumé, Bistro & Bar, Hurley's Restaurant & Bar, Market, Napa Valley Country Club, Smoke Open Fire, The Springs of Napa, and TORC.

20th Anniversary Cookbook: For this celebratory year, we are publishing a cookbook with all the recipes from previous Kitchens in the Vineyards. The cookbook will be available for purchase at each home - more details on our Web site coming soon.

Give us a ring at (707) 258-5559 if you have any questions, and be sure to get your tickets soon!

SATURDAY'S SELF-GUIDED TOUR (9:30am - 4:30pm): $70

In-Town Transformation
A small, 1950s home completely overhauled by the owner/designer to maximize indoor-outdoor living with every square foot. Modern sensibilities are warmed by a captivating alchemy of clever materials, surfaces, and textures.  

Sleek Sanctuary  
Glass walls, playful design touches, and plenty of natural light fill this modern home designed by award-winning Zak Architecture. Enter through the slatted wood dogtrot, pass the guest quarters, and into the courtyard where a lap pool and lounge area offer sleek elements that compliment the two-story main home.

Water Tower Retreat  
St. Helena's original water tower with L-shaped wings creates the footprint for this stunning retreat home. A bright kitchen with clerestory windows opens to the entertaining patio and pool area. Step over to the guest home where a red spiral staircase beckons you up each of the three stories.  

California Mediterranean
This two-story villa blends warm, earthy elements that embody the romanticism of the South of France. A sycamore-lined, walled entry gives way to a lush courtyard with potted topiary, a pool, entertaining patio, and guest quarters.

Escape to the Estate
This newly constructed, wine country estate home features a sumptuous blend of modern elements, open concept living, and farmhouse elegance. The park-like acre of land offers a pool and spa, outdoor kitchen and fire pit, separate guest/pool house, barn, outdoor showers, and panoramic vineyard views.
