Love & Wine & Castles, oh my

LifeSamantha WetterholmComment

For love weekend, Paul took me on a surprise day trip to Napa, CA. We visited the local shops, went to the most beautiful winery, and ate the best meal in a good long while. What happens when you combine love, wine, and a castle? Well, a darn tootin’ grand old day, that’s what.

When we pulled up to this castle (yes, CASTLE) I was filled with all the giddy excitement that my inner-princess and wine-lovah tend to elicit. Castello di Amorosa is an authentically-styled 13th-century Tuscan castle and winery. Yes, I was drooling, and skipping, and twirling. And that was all before the wine.

We soaked in the sunshine, tasted some magical wines, and explored the castle. We had dinner at this perfect restaurant (hello, crab bisque) and momma had some much needed time away from the city. Of course, I took 13 million photos, because my middle name is overkill

Cheers! 

Now, where’s my wine?
