    We had a great time touring and tasting wines with Sam. She was so sweet and knowledgeable. Make sure to try the Chappellet Signature and Pritchard Hill Cabs. They are terrific and age beautifully. Th...  more »

    It's a drive up the mountains to get there but it was worth it. You can tell the family is into the arts because everything is beautiful inside their building and on their grounds. The tour is great, ...  more »

    This was a great tour and tasting. Much better than being funneled through a cave with a whole bunch of people you don't know. Been to Napa several times. One of the better experiences. Enjoyed the wi...  more »

    Our time at Chappellet was absolutely fantastic. The drive up to the winery alone is worth the visit, as it sits atop a beautiful hillside on the east side of Napa Valley. When we arrived at Chappellet we were warmly greeted by Kailey, who took us on a tour of the vineyard, fermentation room, and barrel room, and ensured that we were never without wine in hand. She told us about the history of the winery, the methods of wine production used there, and a little bit about each of the wines they produce. She then sat us down to a fantastic tasting where we had an absolute blast. The wines were delicious as were the pairings, and I think everyone in our group was very happy with their visit. I would definitely add this winery to your list of places to visit, especially if you're a fan of whites or zinfandels. It was well worth the trip into the mountains, and I promise you won't regret it!

    A fantastic boutique winery located on a mountain top. The wine, scenery, and customer service were all top notch. The price point at this winery definitely reflects what you get so if you are going to pick one special place on your wine touring I would suggest this one.

    Great wine from a family that discovered Pritchard Hill long before others came up and scrambled to grab their own plots of land up there. As a result, they are able to make amazing wine but sell it at much more reasonable prices than others who are paying huge bills for their property. Members also get access to a beautiful meadow with picnic tables and views of the lake below.

    They focus heavily on cabernet sauvignons. While we are mostly white wine drinkers, we fell in love with ALL of their wines and ended up signing up for their wine club before leaving. The tasting is by appointment only. You will not see anything magnificent at the tasting as far as views but the quality of the wines make up for that. If you want to see more, you will have to book a tour. Excellent customer service, we received a personalized welcome email from our guide upon leaving the winery with other recommendations in the area. Highly recommended.

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.
