Calistoga

Napa Valley is synonymous with wine in the US, and one of its best kept secrets is the town of Calistoga, famous for natural hot springs, spas featuring mud baths, and an actual American castle. Castello di Amorosa in Calistoga is about as authentic as they come. Construction on this winery’s impressive (and massive!) main structure–a 121,000 square foot, 107-room castle—was completed in 2007, but all materials and techniques used date back almost 800 years. Castello di Amorosa offers a self-guided tour that’s perfect for the low-key and budget-friendly traveler. After indulging in one of their five premium tastings, set aside a good amount of time to freely roam the castle and its adjacent sprawling grounds. And if you’re looking to get your snack on, don’t worry, Castello has you covered. This winery also offers excellent pairing tours that start with a guided tour of the castle and end with an intimate cheese, antipasti, and wine tasting.
