Cal Mart is your one stop shop for local, domestic, and imported wines.
Unlike many other wine-producing regions of the country, Napa Valley has a venerable wine-making heritage and history. In fact, the history of winemaking in Napa Valley can be traced back to the early 18th century, when the first grapes were planted here by the Spanish.
Not long after, George Yount planted a small vineyard in Napa Valley in the mid-1830s. Two decades later, John Patchett planted the first commercial vineyard in Napa Valley in 1854 and established the first winery here in 1858.
But, as the home of both Buena Vista winery, California’s oldest commercial winery, and Gundlach Bundschu winery, California’s oldest family-run winery, the Sonoma Valley is regarded as the birthplace of the California wine industry.
California and the Napa Valley Wine Country – The Undisputed Leader in American Wines
Until the 1970s, the reigning monarchs of fine wine had been and still was, France. That all changed.
According to an entry in Oz Clarke’s New Encyclopedia of Wine, California’s Napa Valley “was the catalyst and then the locomotive for change that finally prised open the ancient European wineland’s rigid grip on the hierarchy of quality wine and led the way in proving that there are hundreds if not thousands of places around the world where good to great wine can be made.
The bounty of Napa, Sonoma, Lake and Mendocino Counties make up our local selections. Included with these are many great Calistoga AVA wines, along with wines representing the other 12 Napa Valley AVA’s, such as St. Helena, Rutherford, Oakville, and others.
An AVA is an American Viticultural Area, which is a designated wine grape-growing region in the United States and serves as an official appellation to benefit both the wineries and consumers. There are close to 140 AVAs in California with the six-county region traditionally regarded as the “Wine Country” being the home to almost a third of them.
We also offer great wines from around the world.
With the number of local wine enthusiasts that live in our neighborhoods, as well as those who routinely travel to the Napa Valley Wine Country, we have always made it our mission to offer a worldly and robust array of wines to please the palate, as well as to bring the best wines and winemakers the valley has to offer.
And because we live in one of the most prestigious and accredited wine-growing regions in the world, we also realize that there is much to be experienced from our overseas wine-growing region counterparts.
