Graeser Winery

2018 visitors

The Graeser Winery on Petrified Forest Road, high above Calistoga and the valley floor, is a hidden treasure. Named in 1886 by its founder Richard Beverly Cole "La Perlita del Monte", it is truly a little pearl of the mountain well worth the extra effort required to get there. Winding up the wooded driveway, off Petrified Forest Road, a visitor to Graeser Winery might be moving back through time into the 1800's. The house, the barns and other outbuildings are vintage in their own right. In an atmosphere so evocative of the past, a visitor must remind himself that Graeser Winery is very much a part of the 21 century, was bonded in fact, as recently as 1985. The vines that look naive to the hillsides they cover are producing superior fruit. Elevation and locale give the Graeser ranch its own microclimate, and with no other wineries nearby, it can accurately be called unique.
