Twin Pine Casino & Hotel in the Bay Area has it All
Wine all around
Twin Pine Casino is a Native American Casino located in Middletown, California, which is the northern gateway to the world-renowned wine country – Napa Valley. Opened in November, 1994, this casino hotel in California is owned and operated by the California’s Middletown Rancheria of Pomo Indians. Not only is Twin Pine a casino in the Bay area, it’s also a hotel that offers wine connoisseurs the fun and opulence of a first-class casino, hotel, and restaurant. This Calistoga hotel stands approximately midway between northern Napa Valley Wineries and Lake County, and is located 15 minutes north of Calistoga, 20 minutes south of Clear Lake on Highway 29, and 90 miles north of San Francisco. Unlike casinos and hotels in the Bay area, this casino/hotel is “the only place to play and stay in Wine Country”. In fact, it’s recognized as being the only wine-themed casino/hotel haven in the United States. Twin Pine Casino & Hotel appeals to guests who like to combine their fondness of casino experience and wine appreciation. Speaking of wine, there are a few Wineries close enough to take a day trip and go wine tasting. The Wineries include:
• Cache Creek Vineyards
• Brassfield Estate Winery
• Chacewater Winery & Olive Mill
