Napa Valley's Harvest Inn is entering into a strategic alliance with Woodside Hotel Group. City-Core Hospitality and its principals, Rick Kaufman and Andrew Garay, will retain ownership of Harvest Inn, which is located in St. Helena, Calif., with Woodside managing the day-to-day operations.

With this new relationship, Harvest Inn will offer new guestrooms overlooking the Leonardini Vineyard of Whitehall Lane, as well as views of the Mayacamas Mountains. The property will include fire pits, hammocks and sculptures located throughout its gardens, vineyards and redwood groves. Executive chef Spencer Wolff will continue to helm the hotel’s Harvest Table restaurant. A new menu will provide more offerings sourced from local growers, including the property’s own collection of five culinary gardens, an an expanded wine list will bring a renewed focus to Napa Valley wineries.

“I’m incredibly excited for the next chapter of Harvest Inn,” Kaufman said in a statement. “Saint Helena continues to be the epicenter of the Napa Valley and our association with Woodside Hotel Group allows us to build on the hotel’s success and strengthen our bond with the community. We have no doubt that the local and hands-on operating expertise of Woodside will provide our guests with even better experiences from their rooms to the restaurant, bar, spa, grounds—everything.”
