On the north end of the Napa Valley you’ll find the beautiful and historic town of Calistoga, CA. Aside from its Victorian architecture and famous hot springs, given its location it is also home to some truly all American wineries. When visiting Napa Valley you’ll learn of all the different micro climate appellations and the vintages they specialize in. Calistoga is its own region and with wide ranging temperatures due to marine effects, it produces Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Syrah and Petite Sirah. At Churchill Manor we love to send our guests off to visit the most highly recommended vineyards in each area. Here is a list of our favorite Calistoga wineries.
