In the heart of the Napa Valley stands a landmark historical Victorian home and the oldest continuously operating grocery store in California. Founded in 1881, this beloved general store served the visionary pioneers who first planted grapes in the valley. Today, the adjacent founder’s home at the junction of Oakville honors the rich history, legacy and heritage of this world-famous wine growing region.

Amid views of iconic vineyards and landmarks of historical significance, 1881 Napa offers a tasting of distinctive wines from each unique Napa Valley appellation, allowing guests to discover its diversity, abundance, world-renowned terroir and deep history.

Our one-of-a-kind wine history museum features an impressive collection of artifacts and vineyard and winery relics. Explore photos and stories of the pioneers who first settled and planted grapes in the region in the mid-to-late 19th century – pioneers who were instrumental in creating the Napa Valley landscape as it is known today.

1881 Napa is a must-see, must-taste destination.
