The Napa Valley is full of wonderful wineries, restaurants, spas, hotels and activities that entice travelers from around the world. While Napa County is small, wine tours and tastings travel through charming towns that blend seamlessly with the surrounding vineyards. In the north end of the Napa Valley, Calistoga hosts elegant resorts, highly rated restaurants and outdoor activities. This rustic northerly outpost could be a weekend destination all itself, and with so much to do, we are sharing some of Calistoga’s most popular things to do.
Calistoga Farmer’s Market
Saturdays at the Sharpsteen Museum Plaza on Washington Street
8:30am to noon
Every Saturday, year round, Calistoga Farmer’s Market offers local fare from the Napa Valley and surrounding area. As you stroll through the booths at this open-air market, you will be rubbing elbows with local chefs as well as out of town visitors. Fresh, locally grown seasonal produce, vine and tree-ripened fruits & vegetables, colorful cut flowers, fresh seafood quiches and fruit pies lift your appetite as featured musicians punctuate the mood with soothing sounds. Hand made goods like jewelry and hats speak to the wine country fashion. After picking up your wine tasting supplies and souvenirs, it is time to wine taste!

Since 1914, the Peterson family has called this vineyard “home”. At the mouth of the Dutch Henry Canyon, this 100-acre farm was historically used as a plum orchard. But in 1990 the land was dedicated to vineyards and now currently are home to 18 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petite Sirah vines. John Peterson actually planted the 50+-year-old block of Petite Sirah on the farm as a child! The 2013 Napa Valley Petite Sirah from the family vineyard is loaded with blackberry pie in the bouquet with a mouth coating texture on the palate. Renowned winemaker Bob Foley perfectly integrated natural acidity and chewy but pleasant tannins that combine for a gorgeous and long lasting finish. Only 700 or so cases of this 100% Petite Sirah were made, and we can help make sure you get a chance to know this wine better.
