St. Helena Wineries in Napa Valley

St. Helena Wineries in Napa Valley

Part of the fun in helping plan our guests’ Napa winery tours is introducing them to new parts of the Napa Valley. Past the famous estates of Oakville, Yountville, and Rutherford, lies historic St. Helena. Lining Main Street are fabulous restaurants and boutique shopping, and on either side of the tiny town lie some of Napa Valley’s biggest winery names! 

HALL Wines
401 St. Helena Hwy South 
St. Helena, CA 94574
(707) 967-2626

North of its Rutherford location, HALL’s St. Helena estate offers guests a variety of tours and tastings, with samples from a portfolio that boasts more than 170 scores of 90 points or more. You’ll also enjoy an extensive art collection positioned throughout the grounds and buildings. The Hallmark Tour is led by a wine educator who explains HALL’s winemaking philosophy and hosts a private, seated tasting. For true Cabernet fans, try the Platinum Experience, which includes a barrel tasting as well as a sample of the winery’s 100-point 2014 bottling of the Rainin Cabernet. HALL is the perfect addition to any Napa Valley winery tour, especially for art enthusiasts who also love Bordeaux varieties!

Merryvale
1000 Main St
St. Helena, CA 94574 
(707) 963-7777

Merryvale was one of the first Napa Valley winemaking facilities built after the repeal of Prohibition. Experience the hushed drama of the winery’s historic Cask Room, and select from 

a number of tastings offered in the Merryvale salon, including an Artisanal Cheese & Wine experience in which Merryvale wines like Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot are paired with exceptional local products. Make sure to request popular reserve bottlings, like the single-vineyard Chardonnay and the Chairman’s Selection Bordeaux blend. After your tasting, enjoy the proximity of fantastic St. Helena restaurants (including Gott’s Roadside across the street!).  A stop at Merryvale is a great way to add some local history to your Napa Valley winery tour.

Tie the interesting history of Napa Valley to its present with a visit to Spottswoode in the Mayacamas foothills.

Tours are very limited–only a small number scheduled per day–so be sure to reserve ahead of time! The tasting experience includes a tour of the grounds, garden, and historic wine cellar as well as a tasting of current vintages of Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc wines.

You must visit Charles Krug on your Napa Valley winery tour–it’s the site of the very first tasting room ever opened in California! But history isn’t the only reason to go.
