And so it began – two hours – trying to pick out the stops –
We were going to NAPA VALLEY
a good two hour drive ( ended up closer to 2 1/2 hours )
CASTELLO di AMOROSA – fine ITALIAN WINE !
And – I LIKED IT !!!!
The first wine I have actually liked in a tasting ! ( all of them)
And a real castle – took 30 years in planning – 15 years to construct
and at 121,000 square feet – HUGE !
This is a replicate of a 1300 Moorish castle
I do not know the exact reason – other than it was a dream of the owner
But – you have to know – this is not a commercial wine
you can ONLY BUY IT HERE !
And it is all ITALIAN !!!!!
We choose the self guided tour !
Just the outside was worth the cost !
But it was time to do inside !
But instead we went to the under ground tasting room !
We had a really good person who poured
in fact we paid for five
he gave us at least seven
and one was from a $300.00 bottle !!!!
The kind that he had to break the wax seal !
Now – normally I do not like wine
but – there was something about this ITALIAN WINE I LIKED !
Now -the only way to get them home
was to ship them
The bummer was that you had to select at least SIX bottles
before they would ship!
I did not like it that much ( $300.00 )
So – we toasted – marked it up to very enjoyable –
And made our way back out side
exploring as we went!
