St. Helena

The Epitome of Napa Valley

St. Helena has been star of the Napa Valley since the railroad arrived in 1868 and winemaking here began in earnest. The picturesque town seamlessly blends this history with its modern day reputation as home to some of the best wineries and winemakers in the world. With its world-class wineries and passionate community, St. Helena embodies the soul of Napa Valley.

Known for

St. Helena provides easy access to some of the best wineries in Napa Valley, including several located right within town. It also boasts an impressive number of art galleries, as a stroll down stylish Main Street will reveal. Dining is a key attraction here—with Michelin-starred restaurants next to casual pubs—the only trouble you’ll have is picking a restaurant.

Get inspired

Familiarize yourself with St. Helena by exploring Main Street, which is lined with art galleries, clothing and jewelry boutiques, and great restaurants. Be sure to stop by the ÆRENA Gallery, home to evocative sculptures and paintings by some of the best contemporary artists in the world. If you’re looking to combine art with wine, HALL Wines is a must-see. Kathryn Hall, former U.S. Ambassador to Austria, founded HALL to make great St. Helena wines but also to display a top notch sculpture collection; take the Wine & Art Exploration Tour to get your fix of both. Napa Valley blends luxury with casual like no one else, and Sinegal Estate embodies this enchanting combination with its perfectly restored historic estate and gorgeously rich wines.
