Had a recent trip over to the Napa Valley and one of the things we did there was visit a winery up by Calistoga just off of highway 29. The winery has a castle with 107 rooms and most of those rooms are used in the making and aging of some mighty fine wine from grapes grown on the hill side around the castle. The castle can be partially viewed by any spectator but the main hall, the torture chamber and more involve a tour for $25.00. That fee includes 5 tastings per person and a couple hors d'oeuvres. The winery is the Castile de Amorosa and it is still be built. Currently there are no weapons in the armory so I have a reason to revisit in a a few years. Hope you enjoy the pictures I took.
