Considering a vacation to Napa Valley? Of the more than two dozen local wineries you could visit, we’ve curated the seven most stunning and unique wineries you simply can’t miss. Relax and indulge your senses while enjoying the stunning views these Spring Mountain wineries have to offer.
1. Sherwin Family Vineyards
No Napa trip would be complete without visiting us. Our winery is also one of the most beautiful Spring Mountain wineries. We are family owned and provide our guests with family hospitality. Spend the day taking a private tour, soaking in the gorgeous views, and sampling unique, handcrafted wines. While you’re here, ask about the history of Spring Mountain and the history behind our Patriotic Pour, and honor those lost in the September 11, 2001 attacks by taking a moment to appreciate this moving tribute.
2. Behrens Family Winery
If the family-owned winery experience delighted you, your next stop should be the Behrens Family Winery. Perched on the very top of Spring Mountain, you can enjoy handcrafted wines created with love from the grapes of small, low-producing vineyards the Behrens know and trust.
3. Barnett Vineyards
Once you’ve sampled wines while taking in the view from the highest peak, venture into the valley to truly appreciate the change of scenery. Steep hills, caves, and quaint dirt roads await you!
4. Smith Madrone Vineyards
Take some time to appreciate the classics at Smith Madrone Vineyards. Surrounded by strikingly huge trees and the spectacular views you’ve come to know and love, this rustic winery brings you back in time to the 1970s heyday of Napa Valley.
5. Paloma Vineyard
Make new friends by joining the Richards family in their kitchen or on their back porch for daily, free wine tasting events. Chat with Barbara and Jim Richards and notice the care with which Barbara cultivates the hummingbird populations that surround her bird feeders.
6. Stony Hill Vineyard
At Stony Hill, you can taste a piece of history. Their white wines were the first produced in post-prohibition Napa Valley. Their Chardonnay is reputed to be one of the most pure of the “mountain wines” you can sample in the Spring Mountain area.
7. Schweiger Vineyards and Winery
While the Schweiger family originally farmed and sold their grapes to other wineries, they have been producing their own wines and offering tastings from their balcony overlook since 1994. Request outside seating so you can take in the staggering view of row upon row of grape vines winding all the way down the mountain to the valley floor.
8. Saint Helena Winery
Saint Helena Winery aims to offer “hidden gems” to collectors of rare wines. They focus on providing unrepeatable experiences to their customers who want to try something out of the mainstream.
