"I'm incredibly excited for the next chapter of Harvest Inn. St. 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," said Rick Kaufman of City-Core Hospitality.

Harvest Inn, recognized by Condé Nast Traveler in 2016 as the #1 hotel in the Napa Valley, today announced a strategic alliance with Woodside Hotel Group. City-Core Hospitality, LLC and its principals, Rick Kaufman and Andrew Garay, will retain ownership of Harvest Inn with Woodside managing the day-to-day operations for the iconic St. Helena destination.

With this new relationship, Harvest Inn will enhance its guest experience. New guest rooms will overlook the Leonardini Vineyard of Whitehall Lane and offer one-of-a-kind views of the Mayacamas Mountains. Elegant touches - fire pits, hammocks, sculptures - will dot the property's expansive gardens, vineyards, and redwood groves. Executive Chef Spencer Wolff will continue to steer the hotel's acclaimed Harvest Table restaurant. A new menu will feature more offerings sourced from local growers, including the property's own collection of five culinary gardens, and an expanded wine list will bring a renewed focus to Napa Valley wineries.

"I'm incredibly excited for the next chapter of Harvest Inn," said Rick Kaufman, a principal of City-Core Hospitality. "St. 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."

"We are thrilled to work with City-Core Hospitality and manage such a beautiful property in St. Helena. Situated on 8-acres of gardens, redwood groves and vineyard views, the resort has such a remarkable location to offer an unparalleled wine country experience," said Greg Alden, President and CEO of Woodside Hotel Group. "We're excited to expand our operating presence in Napa Valley and bring our personalized approach to the guest experience to Harvest Inn. We see our new relationship with City-Core Hospitality as an exciting enhancement for Harvest Inn guests."

The new Harvest Inn-Woodside Hotel Group relationship is effective immediately.
