Our Story

Welcome to Calistoga! Discover this exciting corner of Napa Valley with Elusa through our small lot wines, all meticulously crafted from vineyards within a four-mile radius of our winery. Our winemaker Jonathan Walden works closely with famed winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown to showcase unique expressions of Calistoga terroir with precision and focus.

Elusa is ideally situated within the Four Seasons resort, allowing us to connect with wine lovers from all around the world in a relaxed and elegant setting. Our goal is to make wines that stand the test of time, and we are fortunate to have a deep library of older vintages to share with our guests.

“‘Minimalistic’ is the best descriptor for our winemaking process. Elusa wines reflect this, as well as the unique growing conditions of Calistoga.”
Thomas Rivers Brown, Winemaker

Power and Restraint 

The Calistoga AVA is where the greatest temperature shifts occur in the Napa Valley. The daytime heat is ideal for letting clusters hang to peak ripeness, while the cool of night allows the vines to rest, resulting in a more balanced wine, at once powerful and restrained.
