About Calistoga Winegrowers

Located at the top of the Napa Valley, Calistoga Winegrowers (CWG) is a non-profit membership of wineries and vineyards located in the Calistoga AVA. CWG’s mission is to promote and protect the past, present and future of grape growing and winemaking in the Calistoga AVA. The AVA was approved in 2009 and became official in 2010 though it has always been considered a unique wine grape growing location, with viticulture and winery census data dating to 1880 listing Calistoga as a distinct region separate from Napa. Rich volcanic bedrock and sediment provide a geologic uniformity, while the AVA’s diverse topography ranges from steep mountains to valley floors, making Calistoga entirely unique to other Napa Valley AVAs. Calistoga’s wines, people and businesses makes for a great Napa Valley experience. For more information, please visit
