St. Helena, “Napa Valley’s main street,” is a center of the wine industry. Joining a wine club is a good way to tour this town and area, with its many fine wineries, and learn its history:
In the 1860s, immigrants discoered St. Helena’s excellent viticulture climate and began planting vineyards. St. Helena was incorporated in 1876, and just ten years later it had a population of about 1,800 and was already a center of the growing California wine industry.
