Calistoga founder Sam Brannan recognized the potential of the local hot springs — and also that the region’s mineral-rich springs, volcanic soil, hot days and cool nights were ideal for wine grapes. Today the Calistoga AVA (American Viticultural Area), a subregion of the Napa Valley AVA, is a unique, diverse winegrowing region. We’re thrilled to introduce you to the extraordinary wines which thrive here. With laidback candor and warm hospitality, our favorite artisan producers in Calistoga and throughout the Valley invite you to learn more about their craft and sample their current releases. We’ve picked a signature experience with our partners to get you started; keep in mind they have much more to offer you. Note: most require an advance appointment.
