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.

  • If you're looking for a picnic with wine, cheese, and meats then you found the perfect spot. I've been visiting V. Sattui for many years. I've never found a better place to enjoy a picnic with family. The wine tastes great and you'll have a chance to taste many of them here at the wine tasting bar. The cheese and meat area is a PITA when this place is busy, so expect a crowd. They have everything else you'll need for the picnic, so don't worry about anything. If you're lucky you'll see the train go by while you're eating at a picnic table.
  • We thought the wine here was the best of the handful of places we stopped on our visit. It's a great place for families and people who aren't serious wine connoisseurs. We enjoyed sitting outside and eating our BBQ, drinking wine, and enjoying the weather.
  • This place was fantastic for both wine lovers and non-drinkers like myself. At the end of the wine tour I pretty much had an entire bottle of their crafted grape juice to myself and it was hands down the best juice I've ever had. Our crew wound up buying three bottles to go. The tour guide Robert was elaborate and knowledgeable on our tour and during the tasting. Highly recommend.
  • Great experience! Luis was our bartender and he was so warm and made us very comfortable. He was very knowledgeable about the wines and super sweet. The tasting room had some great food and everyone there was having a great time and it was like drinking at your local bar. Would definitely go back!
  • Very beautiful winery. It was easy to find and there was plenty of parking. We visited unfortunately on a cloudy and rainy day but I could tell that this place would be great outside on a sunny day. There's plenty of benches and seating outside if you were to grab a lunch. Wine tasting was $15 per person and you could try 5 wines. We ended up buying a couple bottles along with some deli meat and cheeses. Overall it was a pleasant experience.
