Calistoga Wine Tasting Tours
Calistoga is a justly famous part of Napa Valley, but that doesn’t mean that all of its wineries take an equal turn in the spotlight. Places like Chateau Montelena, Frank Family, and Clos Pegase are well known and well worth a visit, but just off the beaten path are other wineries deserving your attention. For a first time visitor, this is our list of the must try wineries in Calistoga.
Everyone wants to come to Calistoga or Napa in Summer, but Summer brings crowds that will remind you of Christmas at Costco. Unless you like standing in lines, fighting for a spot at the tasting bar, and sky-high hotel rates, avoid Summer.
More important is that the wines are very nice. You are not rushed and the people (Bradley) are informative and welcoming.
The staff at Bennett Lane Winery eschew the hard sell because they know their wines speak for themselves. The result is a laid-back, friendly tasting experience featuring some of their 36 90+ point wines from top tasting authorities. $20/person for the tasting.
From the moment you see the massive ivy-covered façade of Chateau Montelena, you know you’re in for a rich and romantic wine tasting experience. Stroll through the Chinese Garden and snap a picture of the sparkling sunlight on Jade Lake. Insider tip: No reservation is needed for Current Release Tastings, but groups larger than ten are encouraged to call ahead. Tasting $25 fee is fairly reasonable, and there’s no hard sell but the fee it can be waived if you spent $100 with respect to purchasing bottles or joining their wine club. The staff at the wine tastings are very knowledgeable not only about Montelena’s wines but also about other wineries as well.
