Napa Land Value Soars, No Signs of Stopping

Vineyards and foggy mornings highlight this view of California's Napa Valley wine country.

The assessed value of Napa County property rose $2.4 billion for the 2017-18 tax year–the largest dollar increase in the county’s history, the assessor, John Tuteur told the county board of supervisors.

“We grew more in one year than was the entire value of the roll 37 years ago,” Tuteur reported. The current value is $37.426 billion. In 1980, the entire value of the Napa County tax roll was $2.37 billion, Tuteur said.

Every municipality showed an increase in its assessed values, which provide property tax revenue: American Canyon, 6.04 percent; Calistoga, 9.58 percent; the City of Napa, 6.29 percent; Saint Helena, 6.56 percent and Yountville, 20.69 percent.
