St. Clement Vineyards Description

Perched on a commanding hillside above Highway 128, the St. Clement Mansion built in 1878 presides over the valley and vineyards below. The elegant wood-framed home accommodates a quaint tasting room and a small gift shop, providing visitors with a range of wines, tours, and tasting experiences.

The mansion and winery have gone through many owners over the years, and are now part of the Beringer Wine Estates. (The property was once owned by famed vintner Charles Krug.) In 1979 a new 10,000-case stone winery was built behind the mansion and is part of the tour program.

Known for their Bordeaux blend “Oroppas,” as well as Bordeaux and Burgundian varietals, St. Clement provides a number of opportunities to tour and taste. Opt for the Wine & Cheese Tasting, and take your nibbles out to their fine patio or a spot on the wrap-around veranda. The Oroppas Room Tasting offers library wines, or you can take any tour and add a boxed lunch. (Advance notice is required for lunches and tours.)

The winemaking philosophy at St. Clement is to merge the flavorful abundance of many of Napa’s rich vineyard estates to build complexity into the wines. The winery sources grapes from the cool wine lands of Carneros all the way north to Calistoga, with the goal of creating richly textured wines from the diversity of regions in the Napa Valley.

Best for Kids!
Vyralynne, Fremont
This place is awesome! The wine is very good, the tasting bar is comfortable, and the staff are very pleasant. That aside, it is truly an amazing place to go if you happen to be accompanied by a child. There is a chalkboard room under the stairs, near the tasting room, that can keep your child occupied for hours! Also, a nice porch swing outside,and some simply amazing views. We try to hit this place up every time we go to Napa Valley.

Staff outstanding, Deana and Irwin were personable, knowledgeable and friendly. The grounds are amazingly beautiful and the view from the front porch and picnic terraces of the valley below are breathtaking. we picnic here and enjoy a glass of Starr Ranch Cab. Wines here were almost half off list and we purchase the Starr Cab, Orropas, and Sauv Blanc. The tasting room is small and charming, go when there are no crowds and enjoy some Napa magic. Our best stop of the trip.
