Wine Tasting

Small but good wine selection, unique varietals as well. Friendly and helpful server! Even stayed past hours, allowed us to enjoy everything without feeling rushed or pressured.

We were wandering around the town killing a few minutes. I don't know why I chose to go in this particular business but I'm glad I did. Three tastings for $10 which is waived if you purchase a bottle. I'm a Chardonnay girl but the Pinot Blanc was delicious! Colette was very enjoyable and recommended other things for us to... More

We had been to this tasting room when we were in the area 4 years ago and I loved the wine (even brought a bottle home) and so I had to come back. The wine definitely did not disappoint! We, yet again, bought a bottle to bring home and enjoy. The guy there was nice (and knowledgable) but not super... More

Conveniently located in downtown Calistoga, August Briggs Winery was definitely a diamond in the rough. We came here on a bicycle tour and it was definitely a highlight of the day. If you enjoy tasting outside the norm, this is definitely a place to check out. The cabernet sauvignon was incredible!

The organization is employee-owned and they have been in business for over 20 years.They are very serious about their wine and have some really excellent choices.Because they but their grapes from other growers, they...

We love a good pinot and A. Briggs has consistently offered the best from several appellations in the region for years. Nominal fee is waived with purchase. Liberal wine club participation. Small tasting room with lots of character and info of the area.

This place is in Downtown Calistoga! Megan Helped us with the area and told us about the Shuttles. She was very knowledge in the wines and I actually liked quite a few of the wines here. This was one of the best first stops I could think of. Truly glad we stopped here. Thanks Megan we will be back!

Tasting room is located in downtown Calistoga. Last year they had very good pinot noir and cabernet sauvignon. This year the 2012 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir for $38 was just average. Sold out of their cabernet sauvignon. Tasting fee was waived with a purchase of one bottle.

Thank David from La Palma
