Atalon Moves From Oakville to Calistoga
Premium Cabernet Sauvignon producer Atalon Winery recently moved from Oakville to Calistoga in the Northern Napa Valley. Atalon was previously using Cardinale’s production facilities and is now making wine at the old Robert Pecota Winery and Vineyards.
Regarding the sale of his land, Mr. Pecota said, “I’m 68 now and with my daughters tending their families and other interests, it seemed like a good time to downsize and get back to doing the things I love most — driving a tractor, growing grapes and making small quantities of handcrafted wine. That’s what I intend to do and I hope our longtime customers will accompany me on the journey.”
Jess Jackson and Barbara Banke are the current owners of Atalon. They purchased the “ghost winery” a few years ago.
