Calistoga, CA - December 2018

This weekend I took a trip to Calistoga, CA which is in the heart of the Napa Valley. It was my first time visiting and I definitely will be back again soon! Calistoga is home to some huge wineries if that’s your thing, but I much prefer the small family-style wineries this town has to offer. On my trip I visited Chateau Montelena Winery and Castello di Amorosa Winery. Both of these wineries were huge but had beautiful grounds. However they are more for the sights than the wine. I also visited Vincent Arroyo Winery and Tedeschi Family Winery which were both amazing. Vincent Arroyo had amazing reds and Tedeschi had wonderful whites as well as some red I enjoyed. Both wineries had really friendly and knowledgeable staff and I’m happy to say that I’m now a wine club member at both! Below you’ll find some photos from my trip.
