This location in the Napa Valley offers great access to Santa Rosa and Highway 101. The location gives access to the amazing wineries and vineyards of Napa Valley, while avoiding the more crowded and traffic prone area around the City of Napa itself. Dutch Henry Winery is minutes away (4 miles) from Downtown Calistoga, which is becoming a vibrant center of up-valley Napa. Calistoga offers many restaurants, boutique shops, spas, tasting rooms, wineries, and luxury hotels.
The climate in Calistoga and the upper stretch of the Napa Valley is ideal for growing grapes, as evidenced by the proliferation of high quality vineyards producing world-class fruit. The upper section of the Napa Valley where Dutch Henry is located is an ideal location for outdoor events. The mild climate of the area sees average temperatures ranging from 35° to 59° F in December, and from 53° to 93° F in July. Annual precipitation ranges from 26 to 41 inches per year in different portions of the county.
The Calistoga AVA is an American Viticultural Area located in the northern portion of California’s Napa Valley AVA. The appellation is distinguished by its volcanic soil, high temperatures up to 100 °F during the day, and cool nights during the growing season due to breezes from the Russian River. This nighttime cooling causes some of the highest diurnal temperature variation in the Napa Valley—up to 50 °F. The hot days provide color and flavor in the wines, while the cool nights help to maintain acidity and structure. The appellation had its first growing season in 2010.
The two story, 2700± square foot winery-building serves as the main working area of the winery and as the main tasting room. The winemaking area of the building houses the main fermentation area, and has standard features including floor drains, glycol plumbing, forced air chilling, night air-cooling, water service, and electrical service up to 480V. The 2700± square foot crush pad is located adjacent to the winery, and is uncovered. Office space is located on the second floor of the building. A tasting room is located adjacent to the main cellar. Solar panels installed on the south-facing roof of the building help offset electrical usage.
The cave was built to provide a year round covered and temperature- controlled working environment. The consistent temperature and humidity of the cave make it an ideal space for barrel storage. The cave was designed with an additional room dedicated for informal tastings and small gatherings. The exterior of the cave was built so as to have minimal impact on the surrounding environment, and it looks as if it has always been there. There are two entrances to the cave, one adjacent to the winery, and the other located near the residence. The cave has a fire suppression system, with all water needs met by on-site storage tanks. The stone on both portals was sourced from a vineyard in St. Helena and a local mason did the rockwork. Olive trees on the hillside above the entrance to the caves complete the integration of the cave on the property.
The residence is located up the driveway from the winery building. The structure is two stories with the ground floor used as a two-car garage and storage area. The upper level is a three-bedroom, three-bath residence. The house features a second-story deck offering expansive valley and vineyard views.
