Escalon Times - - MARKETPLACE 209 -

CAL­IS­TOGA —Caber­net Sea­son is a spe­cial time to visit the Napa Val­ley, but this year is ex­cep­tional. As Wine Coun­try re­cov­ers from the Oc­to­ber wild­fires, the re­turn of tourism has be­come an im­por­tant step for Cal­is­toga. For­tu­nately, the charm­ing town and its main street were spared of fire dam­age; Cal­is­toga is ex­cited to wel­come vis­i­tors back.

The Cal­is­toga Cham­ber of Com­merce and Wel­come Cen­ter in­vites you to par­tic­i­pate in its eighth an­nual Win­ter in the Winer­ies Pass­port sea­son, be­gin­ning Satur­day, Dec. 2, 2017, and run­ning through Sun­day, Feb. 4, 2018.

Ad­di­tion­ally, Pass­port hold­ers will re­ceive spe­cial restau­rant of­fers and dis­counts at sev­eral of Cal­is­toga’s lodg­ing prop­er­ties, spas and down­town shops.
