Thanksgiving Day in Calistoga

With the grape harvest complete and the vineyards offerings the illusion of New England foliage, you know autumn has arrived. Thanksgiving will soon be here, maybe not as quickly as you can empty that Schramsberg bottle of bubbly, but it is right around the corner. The good news is that this is the time of year we get to gather around the dinner table to appreciate and share family recipes during a feast of the senses. Whether you spend your Thanksgiving with family, friends or neighboring dining companions at your favorite restaurant, communing around the table for this holiday meal is heartwarming.

But if the idea of preparing dinner is added stress… think brining the turkey, peeling potatoes and making piecrust from scratch, know that you have options! Simply because you are fully capable of preparing the whole meal doesn’t mean you have to succumb. With the help of Evangeline and its prepared turkey and sides (sold individually or as a complete dinner), you could leave the main entrée and all of the fixings for this holiday feast to the experts. We invite you to visit Calistoga for Thanksgiving!

If you’d like to settle back, accept a plate and be thankful you’re seated next to someone special, Thanksgiving Day at a Calistoga restaurant may be the perfect solution. You could even use that leftover time wine tasting for the perfect bottle to pair with turkey and pumpkin pie before you head to one of the many restaurants open for a special Thanksgiving menu. Whatever you decide, know this: there is something for you in Calistoga on this holiday weekend.

Below is a guide to enjoying a Thanksgiving experience in Calistoga. Here you will find a list of what restaurants and wineries will be open, and which restaurants offer special holiday menus. All you have to decide is whether or not you’d like to smell the turkey roasting in your oven, or visit Calistoga and enjoy the aromas of many turkeys roasting inside a restaurant?
