History Lives Here
FOUR HISTORIC
SPOTS TO
DISCOVER
BERINGER RHINE
HOUSE
Dating to 1884, the 17room Rhine House is the
center point of Beringer
Vineyards, Napa's longest
continually operating
winery. The entire estate
is a Historic District on
the National Register of
Historic Places.

achievement a decade later: France's Judgment of
Paris of 1976.
An English wine merchant set some of the finest French wines against little-known California labels in a blind tasting, and to the esteemed
French judges' great shock, the Napa Valley's own
Chateau Montelena Chardonnay and Stag's Leap
Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon took home the
gold medals.
Finally, the region's world-class grapes could
bask in the true glory they deserved, and since
then, Napa Valley has been synonymous with fruit
growing, winemaking, and gorgeous agricultural
landscapes.

"Napa Valley has long been famous for its natural beauty and marvelously fertile land," says
Nancy Levenberg, executive director of the Napa
County Historical Society.
As a thank you to Napa Valley's verdant earth, in
1968, vintners and landowners formed the nation's
first Agriculture Preserve to protect natural majesty.
The expansive preserves ensure balance between the
region's pastoral splendor against the well-managed growth of modern amenities like resorts,
restaurants, wineries, and vineyards.
"In all cases, we have protected farming and
open space as the highest and best purpose of our
lands," says Levenberg.

CHATEAU MONTELENA
WINERY
"The Chateau" was built
in 1888 as a barrel-aging
facility. Most 19th-century
wineries were made from
wood, but this fortress-like
castle consists of thick
stone walls to insulate
from heat or cold, and the
building is nestled into the
hillside to better facilitate
regular temperatures.
CHURCHILL MANOR
This 1890 mansion-turnedB&B has ten guest rooms
with the perfect blend
of old-world style and
modern touches: clawfoot tubs, ornate mantels,
wood fireplaces, and
walnut bedroom furniture.
LAVENDER INN
In Yountville, this 1850s
farmhouse is one of
the oldest homes in
Napa Valley; today, it's a
charming small hotel with
lavender garden, outdoor
courtyards, and a graceful
wrap-around porch.
