A New AVA in Napa Valley

There is good news for wineries in Calistoga, California. Since 2004 the Calistoga region of Napa Valley has sought to have its own AVA. This week the TTB has given final approval for this newest AVA.  The decision was based on many references to the Calistoga region in numerous sources dating back many years. A report by Dr. Swinchatt gives the details of the geologic and geographic area as well as the climatic conditions. Anyone interested in the new Calistoga AVA can read the TTB pdf. For those wineries using Calistoga already on their label and that don’t meet the AVA requirements will have up to three years to change their labels.

Cheers! Kathy
