From delectable food to fine art, these Napa Valley boutiques offer state-of-the-art products
Although Napa Valley is primarily known as a wine mecca, it has lots to offer in the way of shopping as well. Whether you’re a local looking for your new favorite shop or an out-of-towner searching for some fun keepsakes and knick-knacks to take back from your vacation, here are some of the top boutiques in Napa Valley.
Like any home and garden store, upon walking into Acres St. Helena’s, you’ll see a myriad of beautiful flowers. However, you’ll quickly find out that this is much more than just a plant shop--it’s a cozy destination for home decor and seasonal items, too. Amidst the plethora of greenery and landscaping supplies, you’ll find unique furniture and other decorative pieces to give your home a special flair. Truly a one-stop shop, there’s also a specialty food section that carries the area’s best locally-sourced items.
Also located in St. Helena, Acme Fine Wines lives up to its name. Owned by wine expert Karen Williams, this gallery-style wine showroom is sure to impress even the most seasoned aficionados. Acme Fine Wines displays the most impressive local wines while also carrying selections from around the world, so the choices are endless. Become a wine club member to elevate your experience even more by getting exclusive access to a variety of the best vintage options.
Need some food to go along with your wine? Head to Atelier by JCB to find a host of options. There are spices, caviar, fish, pasta, olive oils, truffles, meats, crackers, wines, and more. Many of the items are sourced locally in Napa and Sonoma, but some of them are flown in from France, Italy, Spain, and other European countries. Whether you’re searching for mustard from Burgundy or honey from Napa Valley, you can find it here. The charcuterie is an absolute must-try.
For everything else, there’s V Marketplace. V Marketplace is a collection of boutique shops, from clothing and bedding to home and garden. There are three art galleries, a wine cellar (with a wine bar and lounge where visitors can sample various options), and restaurants ranging from casual burger joints to chef Michael Chiarello’s sit-down Italian restaurant. Napa Valley’s original hot air balloon company is even located there, and it launches rides daily in good weather.
