Located 79 miles north of San Francisco with a population slightly over 5,000 it shares the Napa Valley’s mediterranean climate yet slightly warmer in the summer months as it is further from the San Francisco Bay and the narrowest part of the valley. With 38 inches of rain per year it nourishes this agricultural region and enhances the beauty of the existing stunning vistas. Pioneer Park located in the middle of town has a great summer concert series and the park can be enjoyed year round.
In 1920 Giuseppe Musante, a store owner drilled for cold water and found a hot water source. He soon sold Calistoga Sparkling Mineral Water which is known today as Calistoga Water Company.
