WINERY

The Art of Personal Winemaking Awaits.

Perhaps it’s the pristine vineyard spanning almost 6 acres. Or the estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon produced within walking distance of your room. Or the understated elegance of the Tasting Room, Barrel Room and Wine Cave. Calistoga Resort is truly exceptional in this regard: no other five-star wine country resort integrates grape-to-glass so thoroughly into your stay.

Whether as a Residence Owner or Resort guest, you’ll be invited to explore – and in many instances participate in – the winemaking process, from harvesting the grapes to sorting and selecting the optimal fruit to blending and aging the wine. Listen as acclaimed winemaker Thomas Brown and his team describe Calistoga’s unique terroir and learn the subtle yet distinct differences between floral and woody, balanced and rounded, fruit-driven and terroir-driven wines. Calistoga Resort does more than simply pull back the curtain on wine country. It provides you with complete and unprecedented backstage access.

Creating a Culture of Viticulture

As a guest, you can taste complex and age-worthy wines mere moments from your room and enjoy a rich winemaking curriculum during your stay. As a resident and member of the Wine Club, you’ll have the exclusive opportunity to collaborate closely with resident winemaker Thomas Brown to craft your family’s private label, vintage after vintage. Store your wines in the Residence Owners’ Private Wine Library until the perfect occasion arrives.

The Vineyard: A Spectacular Event Setting

Imagine exchanging wedding vows in the heart of our vineyard. Or treating your most talented executives to the ultimate wine country reward. A fully functioning winery complete with vineyard, crush pad and production facilities, the Winery serves as a spectacular setting for weddings and other special events. Our well-appointed Barrel Room is a unique venue for toasting the bride-and-groom-to-be or celebrating a landmark wedding anniversary, milestone birthday or once-in-decades family reunion.

The Complete Wine Tasting Experience

Great wine deserves great food. Adjoining the Tasting Room is the gourmet General Store, with its fine assortment of cheeses, meats, fresh-baked breads and more. Part French bistro, part farm-fresh market, the General Store is the perfect venue for relaxing with a cappuccino and the New York Times on Sunday mornings or enjoying a fabulous panini after riding the backroads of the Calistoga AVA.
