The sisters of Holy Assumption Monastery are now offering redwood and pine caskets for sale. Our brochure is available for download, or you may follow the "More Information" link below to view photos, details, and pricing.

The production of the Kagor and the Alicante blend altar wines is a joint venture between Holy Assumption Monastery and St. Symeon Orthodox Church, through the non-profit company Calistoga Orthodox Wines. For more information on our wines, or to order, please contact Fr. Joakim Provatakis, at or (707) 341-6429.
