  • PLACENAME: Tubbs Lane in Calistoga, is named for the Tubbs family.
  • In 1882, Tubbs purchased 254 acres near Calistoga, where he created the Montelena Winery (which the Tubbs family owned until 1958). The 2008 movie "Bottle Shock" was based on the story of wine grown at Chateau Montelena.
  • The 2017 Tubbs Fire in Napa, Sonoma, and Lake counties, was the most destructive wildfire in California history up to that point (it has since been passed by the Camp Fire of 2018) burning 36,810 acres, causing $1.2 billion in damage and killing 22. The fire's name came from the ignition point, which was near Tubbs Lane in Calistoga (see above).
