Our Story

During the boom of the Napa and Sonoma county wine industries in 1986, Tom and Tammy Pelter founded Calistoga Wine Stop with the desire to find a wine for every palate and budget. For over 35 years, we have helped our customers with their wine needs from older vintages to new releases. We stock something for every person’s taste and budget. Calistoga Wine Stop carries over 300 labels including wines exclusive to our shop’s inventory. Because of our location and relationships we specialize primarily in Napa and Sonoma County wines, smaller labels, lesser known winemakers, and producers a little off the beaten path. Our extensive inventory includes international imports as well as a handful of other California producers. We are here to help you with recommendations for every occasion including food pairing, long term cellaring, or just a nice bottle for every day consumption.
