1881 Napa, the Napa Valley’s first wine history museum and tasting salon, has opened in a historic Victorian home in Oakville. Created by Jean-Charles Boisset, proprietor of Boisset Collection, it has an extensive collection of wine artifacts from Europe and the United States and is next to Oakville Grocery (founded in 1881 and the oldest continually operating grocery store in California). The two centerpieces of the space—a 48-light Baccarat crystal Zenith chandelier and a reproduction of an 1895 map of Napa County on canvas hanging from the ceiling—provide a dramatic environment for exploring the displays surrounding the tasting room.
