Why did we dine here? – Redd Wood is the sister restaurant to Michelin-starred Redd in foodie heaven, Yountville. We love Redd, so we were just waiting for our next visit to this area for an opportunity to dine here. Redd is one of those top notch places that falls below the radar of many folks. This restaurant is located in the northern part of Yountville, not far from the French Laundry.

As the restaurant puts it, “Redd Wood’s menu showcases regionally inspired seasonal cuisine with wine country influences.”
They serve Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner.

Insider Tip – Order a salad, pasta, and pizza.
