St. Helena

Welcome to Napa Valley's Main Street

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 Greystone 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.

Once you get to St. Helena...

Tour Hall Winery; its modern art collection includes a 35-foot stainless steel bunny at the winery's entrance (you can't miss it!). Down the road, the laidback vibe at Clif Family Tasting Room beckons. Keep going a little further and join the line at Gott's Roadside for a burger and milkshake. Walk it off on Main Street and do some serious shopping — jewelry and notecards at Pennyweight, wine-themed gifts at Findings, and gourmet goodies at Olivier and Woodhouse Chocolates (tours are available).


A little St. Helena history

Early settlers arrived in the 1850s and opened a town store. Soon after, more stores were opened, plus a hotel. History lives on in St. Helena — see what's playing at Cameo Cinema, said to be one of the oldest continuously running single-screen theaters in America. Several pioneering wineries call St. Helena home, including Charles Krug Winery and Beringer Vineyards.
