First Look: RH opens luxury retail/dining showcase in Napa Valley

RH has opened a luxurious outpost that combines retail with food, wine and art in the heart of California’s Napa Valley.

The new RH Yountville features an indoor-outdoor restaurant where patrons can dine under a soaring glass roof surrounded by olive trees, sparkling crystal chandeliers and dramatic 7-ft. fountains. The five-building complex also includes a two-story wine vault in a landmark, early 20th century building that was originally home to one of Napa’s first vintners. It has been transformed with a 24-ft. cedar ceiling, rough-cut fieldstone walls, luxe lounge seating and a monumental limestone bar.

Other features include an outdoor wine and barista bar, and two boutique design galleries. RH Yountville also has eight retail showrooms (or “lifestyle galleries”).

All the different components are connected by lush garden courtyards with outdoor living room-styled spaces that can be reserved for wine tastings, French limestone fountains, globally-sourced antiques and artifacts, a 40-ft., single slab tasting table, fireplaces, and walking path.

RH Yountville marks RH’s ongoing collaboration with restaurateur Brendan Sodikoff, who is also the founding president of RH Hospitality, and architect James Gillam of Backen & Gillam.

“RH Yountville reflects our vision for creating inspiring spaces and authentic experiences that respect and amplify the local culture,” said Gary Friedman, RH chairman & CEO. “This is an inherently personal project given our nearby headquarters in Marin County. We’re humbled to introduce this new experience to Napa Valley – one of the most celebrated food and wine destinations in the world.”
