There are several reasons you are dreaming of a trip to the Napa Valley and we bet we can guess what’s No. 1 on that list. Wine! That’s exactly why more than 3 million people visit this region each year. We may be slightly biased, but we believe St. Helena is the perfect place to plan your wine country getaway. It has everything you’ll need, including a private getaway, an array of delicious restaurants and nearly 20 St. Helena wineries.

Some of the more famous St. Helena wineries include Beringer Vineyards, the oldest continually operating winery in Napa Valley. Sutter Home is another well-known label right here in St. Helena. Yet another household name is the Charles Krug – Peter Mondavi Family winery. In addition to the names you recognize, there are many smaller wineries we can suggest for a well-rounded tasting tour.
The following list is just a very few of the wonderful wineries in our region.
For additional winery suggestions, please ask our front desk staff at the Wine Country Inn & Cottages. We are happy to help you determine which wineries to visit depending on your favorite wines! For a complete list of all the local wineries, please visit the St. Helena Chamber of Commerce.
Keep in mind that wineries do charge a tasting fee. The Wine Country Inn & Cottages is so pleased to have formed relationships with the various wineries in the area. Several of our neighbors have given us free tasting passes just for our guests. So even if you already have a few wineries you know you would like to visit, please be sure to check with our Front Desk first, as we might be able to save you a little money.
