Tank Garage Winery, Calistoga

Our second winery on the Wine Wednesday tour is

Tank Garage Winery

Tank Winery located in Calistoga, CA

Tank Garage Winery has one of the most unique location.  “Tank Garage Winery comes to life in a 1930s era gas station in the Napa Valley town of Calistoga, California.”

These gas pumps are the first thing you see when you walk up.  I wish gas prices were the same as in the ’30s!

From the moment you walk into this winery tasting room you can feel the warmth of the people.  You are greeted with the kind of hello that makes you feel, I’m glad I came here.

Tank Garage Winery back room

The back room looks and feels like you walked right into a speakeasy.  It would be a great place to go wine tasting with friends and travel back in time to a bygone era.  I would love to rent out that back room for a small dress-up party.  It really does transport you to a different time.

In the merchandise room there are cool guitars on the wall that are made from gas tanks

    Love this gimmick. You know, I went to a wine co-op in Italy once and they dispense wine through what looked very much like gas tanks. Locals brought bottles and filled up themselves.

  2. Alexandria Gunn says:

    Great pictures. Thanks for sharing. I don’t think I’ll ever get out there (at least any time soon), but I’m glad I get to see the pictures. And I wish the prices were the same as in the 30s!

  3. Siphosith says:

    I do not know much about wine tasting, but after reading about Tank Garage Winery I feel like I could try it and it would be lots of fun. Your pictures are really enticing.

  4. Anne Louise Bannon says:

    What a fun place. It reminds me of Cero Caliente winery in San Luis Obispo. The guy makes wine out of his body shop – and very good wine, too. Don’t know if he’s still there. BTW, what wines did you taste and how good were they?

  5. Ruth Curran says:

    I am definitely adding this to our next trip to Napa! Thank you for introducing this unique and fun looking winery! (Yes, any sentence that includes unique, fun, and winery has to be good!)
