Storybook Mountain has established a world-wide reputation for the consistently high quality of its wines. The wine tradition began at Storybook Mountain in the early 1880's when its red clay-loam soils were first planted to Zinfandel and Cabernet. Here the ideal match of terroir and grape allows these varietals to express their full potential.Use our Calistoga route maker app to arrange your visit to Storybook Mountain Vineyards and other attractions in Calistoga.
Storybook Mountain's sought-after wines are hand-crafted from the estate's own grapes grown without the use of insecticides or herbicides. They are aged at least twelve months in the best French, Hungarian and American oak barrels into the mineral rich volcanic rock underlying the hand tended vineyards.
Proprietors Jerry and Sigrid Seps' wines are famed for intensity and elegance. These well balanced wines have the appeal to be enjoyed in their youth, the depth to age gracefully, and the quality to be ranked among the finest wines in the world.
Storybook Mountain Vineyards Reviews
Wow. What a fantastic experience. The wine maker walked us around, told us the history of the place and then very safely poured us delicious wine. She shared her knowledge without being overbearing... more »
Storybook is one of those small wineries that you have to make a reservation to visit, but it's well worth the effort. It was very easy; we went back and forth by email. The tasting fee is waived... more »
We had a wine tour late morning on Monday Sept 16. This was one of four wineries we visited. We loved Storybook the best! The had a very informative tour in the vineyard and the tour guide was very knowledgeable. The history of Storybook as great story just like the Grimm brothers. The current owner put a lot of love and care into the wine. They also have a large cave where they keep their wood barrels of wine. We learned a lot, had wonderful time and enjoyed the wine very much.
Storybook is one of my very favorites! From the tall tree's to the great vines and great caves and Zin's! This weekend they hosted our dear friend for a surprise engagement! They made everything so special and so perfect! Storybook should always be top of your list to visit!
