Castello di Ammorosa…Calistoga, California Part 1

Castello di Ammorosa is so elegant and makes you feel like your in Europe in the Medieval times. The drive up to the castle is breathtaking in itself. You will see…it does not lack in charm and personality. Definately a photographers dream. The architect was so stunning, everywhere we turned. We were told they even filmed an episode of “The Bachelor” here.









My son-in-law going down the staircase to the dimly lit and very mysterious tasting room.

Here you see my family enjoying listening to Vicenzo our Sommelier. If you like cabs…please do the cioccolata con sale di marino…fancy term for chocolate sea salt paired with their reds. It greatly enhances the flavor of the wines. This was one of our favorite tasting rooms on our vacation in California. They had all kinds of breadsticks and various dips to try out…very addicting! Gifts of all kinds. Our daughters even bought us a couple of christmas gifts here…lucky us.

I would highly recommend this winery if you are ever in the area. The view just took my breath away…

  6. Definitely a photographer’s dream..such a gorgeous location! So glad that you had a wonderful time. 🙂 We’re not wine drinkers, but I still would very much like to make our way over to that area sometime, as it looks like such a beautiful place to relax and enjoy the outdoors.
