If you have never been to Castello di Amorosa in Calistoga, CA you should take the opportunity to visit. It is a beautiful location to visit. I have been twice, my first trip I had issues with my camera and did not get to many good shots. This time I was prepared and things were working wonderfully.
They offer a variety of tour packages led and on your own type tours. I do the "on my own tour" and they do give you several wine tasting coupons in the package. I very rarely drink wine but did taste one that sparked my interest. It was without a doubt a very good dessert wine. From what everyone was saying and buying they must have excellent wines.
The castle has several hallways and levels. The grounds have a variety of animals.
