The Agenda: RH Yountville, Park James Hotel, and SlowtideAuthor:Allison McCarthy
RH Chairman and CEO Gary Friedman has officially outdone himself. RH Yountville, his most ambitious project yet, is the first-of-its-kind Wine Country compound combining design, art, food, and wine, all in one stunning setting. Housed in the former Ma(i)sonry space, visitors can expect a design gallery with rotating artistic installations featuring RH Interiors and RH Modern collections; a wine vault for tastings of rare, limited-production wines from the region’s best small producers; and a standalone restaurant concept with an ingredient-driven menu in an indoor-outdoor setting. Plan your next Wine Country trip and make a whole day out of this unique experience.
When: Gallery, 10 a.m. – 9 p.m., Monday–Sunday; Wine Vault, 11 a.m. – 10 p.m., Monday–Sunday; Restaurant, 10 a.m. – 10 p.m., Monday–Sunday
