Napa County’s crown jewel just might be St. Helena. Home to grand vineyard estates that sit behind gated drives and rows of olive trees. A fabulous main street, restaurants, spas, and shops are a magnet for St. Helena tourists. There’s a strong local community feel here as well, with many of the city’s historic buildings having been preserved and turned into specialty shops, galleries, and restaurants. The annual Napa Valley Film Festival fills downtown with filmmakers, chefs, and tasting stations from dozens of local wineries.
It only takes a few steps along Main Street to be charmed by St. Helena, where shops, galleries, and restaurants make it easy to while away an afternoon.
Off Main Street, Beringer and Charles Krug, two landmark wineries, call St. Helena home. The Culinary Institute of America (CIA) at Greyston offers cooking demonstrations and tours; built in the late 19th century, this building was home to the Christian Brothers Winery in the early 1900s. A few minutes away, Bale Grist Mill State Historic Park holds milling demonstrations every weekend, using its mighty 36-foot water wheel and grist mill from the 1800s.
