About this listing
Zinfandel House is our home, situated on a wooded hillside a short distance up from Highway 29, halfway between the charming towns of St. Helena and Calistoga which are seven miles apart. Both towns have interesting shops and fine restaurants. Our decks offer spectacular views of the vineyards below, the beautiful mountains across the valley and majestic Mt. St. Helena to the north. Bothe State Park with hiking trails and picnic areas in its forest is our neighbor. Here in the heart of the wine country, we are close to many wineries and other nearby trails for jogging, walking or bicycling.
A room is set aside for reading, listening to music or browsing through our collection of books on food, wine and travel. Guests enjoy relaxing on the decks in summer or in front of the fire in winter. High speed Wi-Fi internet is available throughout the house and now in the bedrooms as well. Ours is a traditional, European-style Bed & Breakfast. We serve a full sit-down breakfast with delicious entrees. Come join us and have a relaxing visit in the Napa Valley.

About the Host, Bette
Your hostess, Bette, a retired secondary school teacher, shared with her late husband, George, a passion for promoting the Napa Valley wine industry and culture. George’s vocation as a petroleum geologist was enriched by his avocation as a university wine educator, writer and judge at historical wine tastings. He did much to encourage and promote the wine industry and culture in Napa Valley. Bette and George became partners of a small winery in the late seventies and moved to the valley permanently in 1980. While continuing his teaching wine appreciation classes at Napa College, he was a pioneering wine columnist for the local Napa Valley newspapers for almost 25 years. They opened Zinfandel House Bed and Breakfast, including an extensive wine library, in their hillside home in 1981. Their interest in food, wine and people continues to make having a Bed and Breakfast a rewarding and, for guests, an enjoyable and unique experience.
