The biggest little town in wine

Visit St. Helena for the wine

St. Helena wineries - St. Helena, CA

Although the small town of St. Helena, CA, has fewer than 6,000 people, it is one of the acknowledged  centers of the global wine business, with more than 80 wineries. The St. Helena American Viticulture Area is noted for warmth, with less fog and wind than other parts of the valley. It produces deep, ripe Cabernet Sauvignons, Cabernet Francs and Merlots.

If you’re planning to visit St. Helena, look for their best St. Helena wineries on Yelp, especiallyplaces with at least 20 reviews and at least four stars. Don’t confine yourself to the town itself — get out into the Napa Valley countryside within five to ten mile radius of St. Helena. Find a hotel, and be prepared to spend several days there.

A winery near St. Helena

Just a 10-minute drive from downtown St. Helena, Anderson’s Conn Valley Vineyards produces world-class wines at affordable prices. The vineyard is a 40-acre estate just south of Howell Mountain. The microclimate of Conn Valley is cooler than many other parts of the valley, although warmer than Howell Mountain itself, so the grapes they grow are closer to mountain grapes than the grapes in the St. Helena AVA proper.

Anderson’s Conn Valley Vineyards has been owned and operated by the Anderson family since 1983. Anderson’s wines are sold online and in five locations in Napa Valley, and many other locations nationwide. By ordering six bottles or more per year, you can join their wine club. This will get you a discount on many of their finest wines. Try a bottle today.
