St. Helena

A sophisticated, luxurious getaway offering space away from prying eyes.

Welcome to St. Helena

 
Luxury and privacy in the epicenter of Napa Valley
 
Situated between green valleys in the heart of California wine country lies St. Helena, a sophisticated, luxurious getaway offering space away from prying eyes. The center of the American Viticultural Area encompasses over 400 vineyards spanning across 6800 acres. Being so, St. Helena is also home to a number of luxury spas and hotels, gourmet restaurants, and high-end shopping.
 
St. Helena was first inhabited by the Native American Wappo people. The area later became an official city in 1876 and began growing shortly after with the development of the first nearby railroad. Tourism also grew with the establishment of the railroad and the expansion of the wine industry in Napa Valley. Nowadays, visitors come from near and far to experience a taste of the storied Northern California wine culture.

What to Love

 

Local Lifestyle

 
Of course, St. Helena is best known for its central location within the Napa Valley. This location is also situated perfectly between Las Posadas State Forest and Sugarloaf Ridge State Park. This means residents can easily access a number of secluded trails, observatories, campgrounds, and spots for rock climbing. One particularly scenic spot is the Lake Hennessey Scenic Recreation area, open for boating, fishing, and bird-watching. Other activities popular among locals include world-class dining and shopping, all located within an arm’s reach.

Dining, Entertainment, & Shopping

 
With the perfect location in the midst of the Napa Valley, St. Helena has become a hotspot for world-renowned dining, shopping, and entertainment. Many of the award-winning eateries have put their own Northern California spin on old-world styles, and luxurious boutiques have brought first-rate shopping experiences to the forefront of the St. Helena Highway.
 
Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch celebrates American farmhouse cuisine with fresh ingredients from their own backyards. Their fresh, seasonal menus are subject to change frequently to allow guests to experience the best Napa Valley has to offer. Some favorites from previous menus include cheddar biscuits, smoked wings, beef tartare, and mac and cheese served in a cast-iron skillet.
 
Gott’s Roadside has been serving modern takes on American classics since 1999. Named for their indoor-outdoor setup alongside St. Helena’s Main Street, some of their top options are tacos topped with fresh California avocados, elote, ahi tuna burgers, and the classic all-American cheeseburger, paired with local brews and Napa Valley vinos. 

An essential stop can be found at Raymond Vineyards, one of the great pioneers of the Napa Valley. The Raymond family arrived in 1933 and re-established their 90-acre estate in 1970 as a vineyard. Now encompassing over 300 acres and spanning across three counties, the wines from Raymond Vineyards are all certified organic and their facilities are completely biodynamic; 100% of the winery’s power comes from renewable solar energy.

Things To Do

 
Auction Napa Valley, one of Northern California's most celebrated charity wine events, has become the gold standard for wine auctions and charitable giving since its inception in 1981. Over 40 years later, they have evolved to Collective Napa Valley, an extension of the original event which will take these higher standards to the next level. The event, held each summer, has provided a financial foundation to residents with a specific focus on the education and health of local children.
