Bark for Bocce

Gold Rush entrepreneur Sam Brannan founded Calistoga with the intent of harnessing its hot springs and making it the “Saratoga of California.” In one of California history’s most oft-quoted slips of the tongue, he famously uttered the words “Calistoga of Sarifornia” instead.

People still come here for the hot springs and mud baths, but we bet your pooch can find plenty of mud on his own. Might we suggest a winery tasting and store visit instead?

Pope Valley Winery is nestled in the northeast corner of the Napa Valley in a hillside valley below Howell Mountain. Reserve a picnic table for a leisurely lunch among the vines, play a game of bocce ball, tour our cave, and taste exquisite hand crafted wines.

Picayune Cellars & Mercantile offers up a relaxing, downtown patio experience and the owner’s beautiful Australian Shepherd, Cachou, is often on hand to meet and greet as you browse the tasting room’s elegant French and American mercantile. Your dog is sure to enjoy people-and-puppy-watching on the front patio, watching Calistoga locals and visitors stroll down the main street.
