This Is Calistoga

Girl Scout Cookies & Calistoga Wine Pairings

It’s that time of year again, when young ladies dressed in uniforms step out as entrepreneurs marketing their popular boxes of thin mints, samoas, s’mores and more Girl Scout cookies during a six-week period.  As the biggest fundraiser of the year, there aren’t many passersby who won’t stop to purchase a $5 box or two…or three, especially knowing if you don’t get a box now, you’ll have to wait an entire year for another opportunity.
