Hello all, would appreciate your input. My best friend is getting married this Sept. at Hans Fahden Vineyard. I'm planning a gathering for female family and friends a few nights prior to the wedding -- not a wild bachelorette party, more just a laid-back social time for the ladies. Everyone is staying in or near Calistoga (mostly Mount View Hotel or Calistoga Spa and Hot Springs Hotel).
Any suggestions for location? It will be about 15-20 ladies, depending on who's in town at that time. Thinking wine and heavy hors d'oeuvres. The bride suggested aubergedusoleil.com/napa-dining/bistro-and-b…
but it's a 20 min. drive and I'm worried about having enough drivers (and such a long drive back after the event!).
Are there bars or restaurants (or hotels?) in or near Calistoga where we could reserve a big table or a private room? Any thoughts appreciated!
