Castello di Amorosa

Once upon a time, a long long time ago there was a castle upon a hill in Napa Valley called, Castello di Amorosa where there are vineyards and there can be found some distinctive wines.  It has been awhile since I’ve visited the castle but I still enjoy their superb wines via mail order.  Several years ago on a vacation in Napa Valley we came across the vineyard and castle.  We took their premium wine tasting tour and were amazed at the hospitality and quality tasting that we shared with a small group of about 12 people.

Along with the almost private tasting was a lengthy tour of the castles grounds, courtyard, grand barrel room, chapel, great hall, Il Ducale Room and tasting in the Il Passito Room.   You can almost experience the tour by visiting their website a watching a virtual tour.  If you have an opportunity to visit, I highly recommend the tour and their exceptional wine.   Click on the images below for larger versions.

Lets talk about the two sides of me. I am a Gemini just so you know. The first side of me is the cooking and entertaining part. This is a major part of my life and I wouldn't be fulfilled without it. Of course, we all have to eat, but the main part of cooking for me is entertaining and sharing fun and flavorful foods with great friends. Dinner parties, happy hours and well, most anything to do with food is where I begin to enjoy. My other side, the artsy side is a craving for art, painting and photography. Maybe this is my Gemini left side of the brain?? Since starting to write a Blog I've picked back up what hubby calls my big ass camera and started carting it around again. He’s always afraid I will ask him to carry it. I keep thinking that when I retire (?#&*!!!) that I will have time to read all the photography books in my library and become a superb photographer. Wishful thinking.

    We just went there this summer! What an amazing place. It was a lot of fun just looking around. We didn’t take the premium tasting tour. I think the wine must be better with that one. I didn’t like the wines at all. What a beautiful place, though!

      We do all have different palates, too. Some of my friends don’t like the wine as much as me but it fits me perfect. I only drink the reds. It could be too, that when being pampered everything tastes better. It was an awesome tour.


I'm looking forward to hearing from you..
