  • I think Dave Phinney consistently makes excellent wines. Palermo, Merucry Head, Machete are all brilliant and have a quality well above their price points. I am not a fan of rose generally because I f...  more »

  • I was nervous visiting Orin Swift because I had read some negative reviews about the tasting room experience, but my wife and I visited from Michigan and we couldn't have had a better experience. McCoy was helping us out and we had our eyes on their more expensive tasting ($25) and the middle one ($15). After these tastings, he offered us a few more tastes that weren't included for free. After we bought a couple bottles for home he even gave us the most expensive tasting on the house. We love their wine and it is even better now with that experience. We will definitely be buying more bottles at our local specialty market in the future! If you are hesitant on visiting, do not be. Well done, Orin Swift.
  • Once a cult wine, new more mainstream - but still unique and well worth a visit.
  • I traveled from New York and made it a point to visit Orin Sift Cellars. I called to confirm it was open. A woman answered and confirmed they close at 5pm. When I arrived with my friend, it was 4pm and that woman slammed the door in our faces while saying, "sorry, we'll be open again tomorrow." I then called and Monica confirmed it should be open. We told her what had just happened, put us on hold and then came back to say they were short staffed and had to close early, not caring that we traveled across country and chose this place specifically to visit. How short staffed can you be to pour wine in a glass? I am very disappointed. This was not a good experience.
  • Amazing and unique wines! Love the names!
  • Great tasting room, helpful staff, awesome decor.

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.
