About Napa County

How to Beat a Napa County Traffic Ticket

Prior to settlements by the first Europeans in 1823, the valley was previously inhabited by Patwin Native Americans and the site of a fort erected by the Spanish Governor in 1776. When the first settlers arrived, six tribes lived around the valley and were often at war with each other; the Mayacomos, Callajomans, Kymus, Napa, Ulcus, and Soscol tribes each occupied land in the area, yet most died during a smallpox epidemic in 1838. In 1836, George C. Yount obtained a land grant where he built what is believed to be the first log cabin in California, a sawmill and grain mill, and became the first person to plant a vineyard in what is now Napa County. The town Yountville was named in his honor after his death in 1865. Napa County was formed in 1850 as California gained statehood.

The county’s population began to grow as pioneers, propectors, and hopeful entrepreneurs made Napa County their new home. In 1858, the great silver rush began and while gold was found in other counties, Napa became a center for silver and quicksilver mining. Not long after, John Patchett opened the first commercial winery in the county in 1859.  Today nearly 141,000 people call the 789 square mile area of Napa County home. Napa is located east of Sonoma County and north of San Francisco.

Most notably, the county is known for its outstanding wine production. The Napa wineries favor the Cabernet Sauvignon varietals of wine and today, over 400 wineries are located within the county. For this reason, as many as 5 million people visit the area each year. When visitors are not sampling the wine, they can also visit Mount Saint Helena, Robert Louis Stevenson State Park, or the Missimer Wildflower Preserve in Snell Valley.
