Napa Valley Dining

The Charter Oak is a restaurant in the heart of the Napa Valley.  Lead by Chef Christopher Kostow of the Michelin three-starred The Restaurant at Meadowood. This Napa Valley dining experience is centered on a celebratory, family-style dining experience. It freatwith simple, approachable, and seasonal food – grilled meats, beautiful vegetables,local wines, and unparalleled cocktails.  Our food is deliberately simple and unadorned- highlighting the beautiful local products of the Napa Valley and beyond.

Our Farm

The 3.5 acre culinary garden sits on the St. Helena Montessori School.  We grow unique, seasonally appropriate crops using organic, sustainable techniques. Emphasis is placed on experimentation with new crops and varieties, growing and cultivation methods, and the utilization of all edible portions of the plant through its life-cycle. This production aims to cultivate a broader mission – serving as a direct relationship between the natural landscape, the food system, and the community. This relationship represents not only a respect for the garden as a part of the ecosystem but also the garden as an opportunity for inspiration, health, and education.

Private Events

Celebrate in the heart of Wine Country. Choose from our various event spaces: an intimate dining experience in the historic Sherry Building, or a large celebration under soft string lights and the canopy of mature mulberry trees in The Courtyard. We approach each event in a custom, personal manner, creating a family-style menu to pair with classically focused cocktails and wines.
