4.2
#5 of 55 in Wineries in St. Helena
Founded by Dan and Margaret Duckhorn in 1976, Duckhorn Vineyards has been crafting classic Napa Valley wines for nearly 40 years. This winemaking tradition has grown to include seven meticulously farmed Estate vineyards, located throughout the various microclimates of the Napa Valley. Focused on quality and consistency, these Estate vineyards are an essential element in making wines of distinction. Pioneering and perfecting Merlot as a premium varietal, Duckhorn Vineyards now makes several elegant Merlot and distinctive Cabernet Sauvignon bottlings that showcase its premium vineyard sites. In addition, the winery is known for its acclaimed Sauvignon Blancs. Beginning with the 2006 vintage, Duckhorn Vineyards unveiled The Discussion, a Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend representing the pinnacle of the Duckhorn Vineyards portfolio. Several years later, the winery debuted its first Napa Valley Chardonnay.

    We had a great tasting of merits and cabernet sauvignons, and then our host pulled out The Discussion.....a big, bold cab that had us all wanting more...but they don't ship to Ohio!  more »

    Absolutely amazing property, and even better wine! The award winning Malbec, or the 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, are a MUST try. Grab your glass and walk amongst the vines, or sit in their delicate back garden for a romantic experience. I HIGHLY recommend stopping by Duckhorn! One of Napa's best!

    Duckhorn Vineyards has always been one of my favorite wine producers. The tasting experience at Duckhorn is great and highly informative. They give you a description card for each wine you taste and the server did a great job walking us through each wine in the flight. The grounds are beautiful and the deck they do the tasting on is a perfect sport to take in the beauty.

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.
