Things to Do

Wineries with More Than Just Great Fruit 

No matter the season, there is a seducing beauty about a moody tasting room with impeccable attention to detail. Three wineries who not only have incredible fruit from the esteemed St. Helena AVA (American Viticultural Area), but also unbelievable vineyard views. A triple threat: great fruit, incredible views, and thoughtful design. 

First, Trinchero Napa Valley, stewards of the land and family owned since 1948. One of few wineries in Napa Valley that focus solely on premium wines. Meaning, their wines are of the highest quality and crafted with the utmost care. Next, Vineyard 29, small-lot, and estate grown varietals. With minimal intervention techniques in the cellar, Vineyard 29 produces wines with intense flavors, complexity, and balance. Last, AXR Napa Valley, nestled under the redwoods, this winery has a long-standing reputation for producing some of the finest wines in the region, consistently ears high ratings from critics. Insider’s tip: spend a moment in their redwood grove, and don’t forget to look up. 

Endless Abundance for an Auspicious Appetite 

There is plenty of fine dining and culinary delights to be found in St. Helena, but Merryvale Vineyards pays homage to a global favorite, PIZZA! A pizza and wine pairing in partnership with Pizzeria Tra Vigne speaks to our stomach and soul. When you do book your fine dining experiences, opt for a reservation at Napa Valley’s newest in luxury dining, the 5-course tasting menu at Auro, Four Seasons Napa Valley. The food presentation beats the stunning backdrop—hyper-seasonal and eccentric while still elegant and polished. After a day of wine drinking, an American classic and craved, Eggs Benedict is done best at Gillwoods Cafe. Throw on your comfiest loungewear and nestle into the corner booth for bottomless coffee and satiating breakfast.
