WELCOME TO CALISTOGA, CA
The small town of Calistoga is a welcoming Napa Valley community with the authentic atmosphere of a 19th Century Western frontier town.

THE NAPA VALLEY’S MOST GORGEOUS WINERIES
Nestled in the foothills of Mount Saint Helena, idyllic Calistoga is surrounded by the aesthetically pleasing wineries of Napa Valley’s countryside.
These include the rustic charm of Tamber Bey Winery, where state-of-the-art winemaking co-exists with world-class equestrian facilities that train high-performance horses.
Another highlight is Chateau Montelena, an ivy-covered stone castle overlooking a beautifully maintained Chinese Garden. Chateau Montelena has played an important role in establishing Napa Valley’s world-class winemaking credentials, with its Cabernet Sauvignon beating France’s finest in the legendary 1976 Paris Wine Tasting.
Sterling Vineyards offers some of the finest views in Napa Valley and has a cable car that brings patrons to the panoramic views seen from its perch at 300-feet above sea level.
But the crown jewel of Calistoga’s stunning wineries is undoubtedly Castello di Amorosa, an authentic 13th Century Italian Tuscan castle with an adjacent vineyard. This exquisite medieval castle spans eight levels and 107 rooms, covering 136,000 square feet. It took seven years to complete the construction of what is undoubtedly one of the world’s most attractive wineries.
