Napa County

Welcome to Napa County

Napa has a rich history and is deeply immersed in a culture that celebrates food and wine. The county offers the perfect environment for people who enjoy sophisticated fine dining restaurants, smaller cafes and bistros, superb wine makers, and locally based shopping in a spectacular setting. The residents enjoy a warmer climate and slower pace than the rest of the Bay Area, and are surrounded by a great deal of open space and natural beauty, all the better to enjoy the bounty of the local wineries and farms.

While the Napa Valley has a history in agriculture beyond grape growing, it is now known almost exclusively for wine. The primary wine growing regions are Calistoga, St. Helena, Oakville-Rutherford, Yountville, and Napa. The county has a total of 16 American Viticultural Areas (AVAs). Roughly 700 grape growers and 475 wineries make more than 1,000 different brands of wine. Family owned wineries account for 95 percent of the Valley’s wineries. The wine industry employs 46,000 people in the county. Other major employers include healthcare providers and the varied businesses in hospitality and tourism, including full service spas and hotels, and smaller bed and breakfasts and inns.

Land conservation has garnered a lot of attention in the last several years. The Land Trust of Napa County has worked to preserve land in concert with its residents and businesses, and has protected 50,000 acres since 1976. Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument was formed in 2015, adding an enormous swath of protected open space to the wilderness north of Lake Berryessa and Putah Creek. As a result, Napa will continue its tradition of stewarding the land and protecting it for future generations.

The lay of the land

Napa County is tucked between Sonoma and Solano, and sits directly above San Pablo Bay. Mount Saint Helena, part of the Mayacamas Mountains running through the county, is the second tallest peak in the Bay Area at 4,344 feet. Lake Berryessa stretches along the northeastern region. The city of Napa anchors the wine region, with Highway 29 heading north through the charming towns of Yountville, Oakville, St. Helena, and Calistoga, while Vichy Springs, and Atlas are further east along 121. A few towns are scattered in the interior county, including Pope Valley and Spanish Flat.

At 141,667 residents (according to the U.S. Census’ 2014 estimate), Napa County has by far the smallest population in the Bay Area. Given that it ranks fourth in size (at 748 square miles), the county has a lot of open space. More than half of the people live in the city of Napa (79,068 residents, according to the U.S. Census’ 2013 estimate).

Getting around

The county has three highways (29, 121 and 128). VINE Transit buses provide public transportation.

Local highlights

The award-winning Napa public school system has 20,252 students in 49 schools over five districts. A variety of Catholic, parochial, secular, and other independent schools also serve the area.

Higher education options include Pacific Union College in Angwin, a four-year college, and Napa Valley College, a two-year community college with campuses in Napa and St. Helena.

For local history buffs, more than 80 buildings and structures are on the National Register of Historic Places in Napa County, including the French Laundry in Yountville, Mount View Hotel in Calistoga, Napa Opera House, and the Culinary Institute at Greystone, which was once the Christian Brothers Winery. The county is steeped in history, and living among sites such as these makes it possible to step back in time.

Many of the smaller towns have thriving art scenes with local galleries and theaters, such as the Napa Valley Performing Arts Center at Lincoln Theater in Yountville.

The city of Napa is the cultural heart of the county and home to the Napa Valley Wine Auction, a big fundraising event for local charities, The Napa Valley Film Festival, and The Oxbow Public Market in Napa, which is a 40,000 square foot marketplace with food vendors, cafes, and organic and produce markets.

The Bottlerock Festival is a relatively new and wildly popular three day event at the Napa Expo with more than 70 musical acts performing among a celebration of music, food, wine, and brew.

Napa County is known for its hot springs, and has a long history of offering therapeutic dips in the water to visitors in search of some pampering. Calistoga Springs, Soda Springs, and Aetna Springs are the best known. Upscale full service spas such as Auberge du Soleil and the Carneros Inn cater to locals and visitors alike.

The Napa Valley Wine Train is a fun option for visitors and residents alike.

For outdoor enthusiasts, the Napa Valley Vine Trail is under development. Once it is completed, residents will have access to a network of bicycling and walking trails.

A state of the art skate park is under construction, and is slated to open in late 2015.

The great outdoors

For the water lovers, Lake Berryessa is well known for water sports as well as hiking, bicycling and picnicking. Pleasure Cove Resort and Marina and Oak Shores Day Use Area are popular lake destinations. The Napa River is a great spot for paddling and canoeing.

Hikers are in luck. Robert Louis Stevenson State Park in Calistoga is one of several parks providing trails for exploring forests and canyons, including a hike to the top of Mt. St. Helena, where sweeping views of the valley are not to be missed.

If you’re looking for more than hiking, consider Skyline Wilderness Park, an 850-acre wilderness area in the southeast, with trails for hiking, biking, and horseback riding, or Bothe Napa Valley State Park, which has wonderful hiking, camping, and swimming spots among the coastal redwoods. Both spots have picnic facilities too.
