  • Ballentine is worth a visit. They are a small boutique winery and they make some good white blends and other less common varietals. We like the Maple Stations white blend and the Chenin Blanc.  more »

  • A little known gem producing great wines and some of Napa Valley's best bargains.
  • Small family owned winery has excellent wines at very reasonable prices.
  • Quaint vineyard, very friendly staff, took their time to explain everything, felt at home.
  • The red zins are fabulous for the price. The tasting room is small and basic with friendly staff.
  • Recommended by the owners of cedar gables inn, we headed up to this small winery. The people there were great, they took the time to explain the types of wine, helped us understand the differences between the grapes, and educated us on how to pick good wine. It was nice to know that they can take the time with visitors, where some of the wineries just give you a pour and walk away. Great wine, great people & great experience overall. Thanks Ballentine Winery.

Where to stay in St. Helena

Because St. Helena is nestled in upscale wine country, most people who visit have no intention of roughing it. As such, the city sports a number of luxurious hotels. Several boast restaurants, hot tubs, and swimming pools; however, keep in mind that those with extensive grounds tend to be farther away from the main street. Budget-conscious travelers can find some more basic motels (looking farther out of town is a good way to save a few dollars). However, those staying on the outskirts should be aware that parking--particularly during high season--can be challenging in the city.
