Here’s the view from the path on your arrival,the gift shop is right around the corner. Or you can go left and venture up the front steps, cross the draw bridge and sign up for the next tour and tasting.

You are also free to explore most of the castle grounds!

Even the bathrooms have a magical feel to them, I really liked the dragon faucets.

Gargoyle

There are many gargoyles placed around the entrance

tasting

At the end of your tour you are taken into a private tasting room and they give you a score sheet that lists all of their wines and you are able to choose up to five wines to taste. My favorite is La Fantasia!

If you are looking for something new to do or you are in the area, stop by and explore this wonderful winery. I count myself lucky to live in the heart of the wine country!

    I don’t know why I was thinking of little old ladies sitting around and drinking tea as they purled away making booties and little caps for their grand children. I couldn’t have been more off base! This site is actually for all ages and is great fun to look at. A lot of creativity is evident in the projects showcased and the humor which prevails throughout the site is increases my incentive to return for more. please, please keep it up. Thanks for the trippy images.

      Thanks for checking out my blog and thank you for the kind comments! Haha yes, it is not an “old lady” blog although, sometimes I feel like my great grandma while working on a project. Slow but steady!

    Talia,
    How have you been?. What’s the deal not keeping up with this amazing blog.? I know comments dropped off with mine after the class closed. Some days it is just flatline but I am persisting I even figured out how to have multiple menus with a single menu template but lost them all when I tried to add another sub-menu. Still can’t figure out what I did. Hope all is well with you. Keep this blog going.
