This year’s harvest is underway and the views and colors in and around St. Helena are transitioning to their next, exquisite stage.
Here are 6 fall foliage must stop!
East of St. Helena, Amizetta Vineyards & Winery sits high above 1000 feet in elevation, looking down over the now golden fruit-free vines cascading toward Lake Hennessy.
To reach Viader Vineyards & Winery climb 1300 feet above St. Helena to the steep, rocky slopes of Howell Mountain. Fall colors can be seen in every direction as you enjoy some of Napa’s finest mountain-grown Cabernet Sauvignons.
All valleys have two sides. Crossing the Napa Valley from east to west, high up on Spring Mountain sits Barnett Vineyards. Perched above the rest, see fall colors on the vineyard valley floor below.
Blocks from Main Street, Spottswoode Winery demonstrates that the fall colors also prevail on the valley floor. Learn the stages of grape to glass and harvest traditions.
Local tip: Vineyards are in rugged terrain so wear comfortable shoes!
Sleep amongst the vines and head south along the Silverado Trail where yet another magical fall view awaits. Behind its gated drive, Poetry Inn is perched above the vineyards of Stags Leap District. This luxurious inn offers guests the best view in Napa Valley!
Fall views aren’t the only reason worth visiting St. Helena. You must sink your teeth into these local favorites!
