Photo Friday: A California Castle Winery

You probably know that I love the California wine country. One reason I love it so much is the variety of wineries, from small boutique wineries that can be visited only be appointment to the can’t-miss architectural statements that make a very big impression. Castello di Amorosa is one of those big wineries that you won’t forget. It even has a drawbridge, torture chamber, and lookout towers. While it may not exactly be to everyone’s taste, this 121,000 square foot castle made from materials imported from Europe, set on a hill in Napa Valley, definitely adds to the area’s wow factor.

I have much more coming about the wineries of Northern California, including a story about boutique wineries and an in-depth look at the Castello. In the meantime, tell me where you favorite wine country is and if you would like to visit  this castle winery.

      Thank you! The sky in California can often be just blue with no clouds, so I was lucky to have some nice clouds that day.
