Have a Crush on St. Helena?

Do you have a crush on St. Helena? We love you too! We love you so much we’ve decided to put together one of our biggest giveaways yet – a two night stay at Harvest Inn and grape stomp experience at Grgich Estates during Napa Harvest!

Each year from August through October, the Napa Valley comes alive with the excitement and rush of harvest. Tending to the grapevines is a year-round process, but this is the time when the vineyards and the wineries bustle with workers racing to pick grapes at their peak ripeness. The entire valley is filled with the wonderful smells of harvest, and you’ll find ideal warm autumn weather.

Needless to say, it’s the perfect time of year to visit, and we’re thrilled to give you the opportunity! There are few places better to experience harvest in wine country than the aptly named Harvest Inn. Located in St. Helena, in the heart of Napa Valley, Harvest Inn captures the charm of vineyard life, mixing California contemporary living with storybook charm. Walk under redwood trees, dine on farm-to-table creations, relax poolside and savor wine and sweeping views of the vineyards from a bench or Adirondack right on their property grounds. Recognized by Condè Nast Traveler as one of Napa Valley’s top hotels, Harvest Inn has set the stage for an alluring Napa Valley getaway.

Stay in style in their newly updated and secluded Vineyard View Collection rooms and immerse yourself in the vineyard way of life with panoramic views of Whitehall Lane’s Leonardini Family Vineyards. Enjoy 550 square feet of space, a king bed, classic fireplace, outdoor private area and terrace overlooking St. Helena vineyards! Wake up and enjoy breakfast for two at Harvest Table, daily.

But, we’re not done. You can’t come to Napa Valley during harvest season and not stomp some grapes! You are invited to jump in a barrel of freshly picked grapes at Grgich Hills Estate and stomp away just like Miljenko “Mike” Grgich did as a child in Croatia! You’ll create a unique keepsake by putting your grape-stained feet on a white “I stomped at Grgich Hills” t-shirt. With purple feet, enjoy a tasting of three of their estate wines. You are welcome to extend your experience with a wine tasting in their tasting room.

Miljenko “Mike” Grgich first gained international recognition at the celebrated “Paris Tasting” of 1976. Then, in a now-historic blind tasting, a panel of eminent French judges swirled, sniffed, and sipped an array of the fabled white Burgundies of France and a small sampling of upstart Chardonnays from the Napa Valley. When their scores were tallied, the French judges were shocked: they had chosen the 1973 Chateau Montelena Chardonnay, crafted by Mike Grgich, as the finest white wine in the world. Mon Dieu! The results stunned the international wine establishment and immediately earned Mike a reputation as one of the greatest winemakers in the world.
