Castello di Amarosa (Castle of Love) - Napa

Website: Date: July 3, 2019 Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Review: 45$ for a tour + wine tasting with 5 wine samplers Love their Sweet Wines and their La Fantasia is a big hit. Castle is like probably 30 years but the parts were half imported from Europe and you get the feel that you are actually not in California. The Chapel Room The Courtyard The Wine Cave The room with David Vattui's Grandfather's Wine Torture Room  Tasting Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 (apparently the best year) straight from the Barrel The Dining Hall

Bottle Rock Napa Valley 2018

Image Date: May 25th to May 27 Feedback: This was very pricy with the one-day tickets sold at $149 dollars but with a service fee of $24 dollars and shipping of $17 dollars, it totals $190 for just a day Friday seemed to be OK. The main stage was not as crowded for Friday headliner (Muse), I guess because the crowd was pretty split between the Muse and the Chain smokers - different genres of music and different kind of crowd. Food: There were a lot of food and drink options. Seems easier to get food near the Midway Stage as opposed to the food stalls near the main (Jam Cellars) stage Make sure you know what to bring and not to bring!
