Shopping in Napa might remind you of shopping in Provence, where the sun almost always shines and there’s an abundance of interiors and food stores, many of which have a very specific regional point of view and artisanal products. You’ll see many French imports, and the best boutiques artfully combine European and Californian sensibilities. Here is our current short list for shopping in Napa Valley.
Set along the picturesque Napa River, downtown Napa is home to many of the area’s finest restaurants as well as some of its most fun spots. For a culture moment, visit the Napa Valley Opera House. This jewel-box of a theater with an Italian-style façade was built in 1879. Today it offers a mix of live music as well as shows and films.
Yountville’s reputation as the culinary capital of Napa is no joke: The area boasts a line-up of acclaimed restaurants and experiences and more Michelin-starred spots per capita than any other place in America. But a slew of galleries and shops make it a great stop, even if you don't have a dinner reservation. While shopping in Yountville, don't miss some of the area's best wineries, including Nickel & Nickel, B Cellars and Cliff Lede.
The rural charm of the agricultural town of St. Helena is evident in its culinary offerings and its several shops on Main Street. Come for fine wines, ceramics and ballet flats—and everything in between. Also in St. Helena is Cameo Cinema, the charming theater that sells gourmet items and is the oldest single-screen theater in the US.
