At the center of world famous California Wine Country, St. Helena is referred to as Napa Valley's Main Street. Settled in 1834 as part of General Vallejo's land grant, St. Helena served primarily as a rural agricultural center. As California wines became more popular and prominent, St. Helena became a major business and banking center for the wine-growing industry.
The Culinary Institute of America is located in what was once the Christian Brothers Winery, and several restaurants boast multiple Michelin stars. Designer shops, galleries, outdoor adventures and the vintage Cameo Cinema offer delightful experiences beyond wine tasting. Quaint overnight accommodations and a variety of day spas add to the allure.
St. Helena proudly calls itself "Small Town… Big Charm," and sets the bar for food and wine trends both locally and abroad.
