Here are the other two wineries we checked out. Each has a banquet facility for events and weddings.

Dutch Henry Winery is a beautiful spot just off of the Silverado Trail in Calistoga. We loved the bocce ball court and lined olive tree driveway.

Cuvaison Winery
Cuvaison is a beautiful property with tasty wines. We were lucky enough to have Travis with Cuvaison pour and educate us on their wines. I, of course, just had a sip of the brides tasting! I just found out that Trader Joe’s is currently carrying Cuvaison’s Chardonnay that we tasted ($27 in the tasting room and $14 in TJ’s).

Saturday was a full day of rehearsal dinner site searching in Calistoga. The concept is to find a great winery in Calistoga (near the wedding site) to invite the wedding guests to the afternoon prior to the wedding day. Tour, taste and enjoy a uniquely romantic European style picnic lunch. Each guest will be offered a hosted tour of the winery, tastings of the current flight of wines, and then everyone will group together and sit on the grassy lawn to enjoy some good food and good company. Each unique picnic basket will be lined with a custom fabric clothe and filled with sparkling water, baguettes, meats, cheeses and other treats for the guests.

We viewed three wineries and the decision was simple for the bride. She chose Clos Pegase Winery.

Here are some photos of the winning winery.
