Where can you find medieval castles, world class wine, mud baths, and redwood forests within a weekend trip? The one and only Calistoga, California of course! Calistoga is about two hours north of San Francisco and we explore the region with the Calistoga Wine Passport which grants us access to the numerous tasting rooms. We visit the winery that helped put Napa on the map, Chateau Montelena and a medieval Tuscan style castle winery called Castello di Amorosa. The natural scenery around Calistoga includes the breathtaking redwood forest of the Armstrong Redwoods State Reserve.
