Calistoga Earns Its AVA

While many California wine lovers know that the town of Calistoga is located at the northern most edge of Napa Valley, most probably did not realize that until recently, wines produced in or near Calistoga could not reference the area on the label. That’s because Calistoga and the surrounding area was not recognized as a separate American Viticultural Area (AVA). The wines were traditionally labeled as “Napa Valley.”

Today, wineries whose grapes come from Calistoga can proudly put “Calistoga” on the label.
