Yountville...the Heart of the Napa Valley

Yountville Chamber of CommerceIn 1831, George Calvert Yount saw the Napa Valley and declared, "In such a place I should love to clear the land and make my home. In such a place I should love to live and die."

As the first non-native settler in the Valley, Yount enlisted local Wappo Native Americans to help him build a Kentucky blockhouse and a mill. In 1855, he commissioned a surveyor to lay out the city. The new community was christened Sebastopol, even though there was a town with the same name in nearby Sonoma County. George Yount planted the first grape vine cutting into the fertile soil of the Valley. In 1867, two years after Yount's death, the town was renamed Yountville in honor of its founder. In 1965, it was incorporated as an official California city.

Yountville has retained its rural charm and residential character. Today's visitor will find a variety of gourmet restaurants, charming lodgings, exquisite retail shops, antiques and art galleries, and world-class wine tasting opportunities. Sunrise hot air balloon rides, golf, a historical walking tour, tennis or bicycle ride are just a sampling of what Yountville has to offer.
