CASTELLO DI AMOROSA Thirty-year labor of love culminates in magnificent winery

H

ave you ever wondered what it would be like to visit an authentic Tuscan castle surrounded by vineyards? One with medieval treasures like a drawbridge, a

courtyard, towers, perhaps a torture chamber and a few secret passageways just for fun. Now you can stop wondering and make that dream a reality. Vintner Dario Sattui has made it possible for you to visit a Tuscan castle in California, situated on a hillside in the Napa Valley. A fourth generation Italian American, Sattui spent 14 years building the winery and medieval treasure he named Castello di Amorosa, Italian for “Castle of Love.” He had 170 containers of handmade antique bricks and tiles shipped over from Europe. Italian artists were hired to paint frescoes in the “Great Hall.” He procured 1,000 pound hand-hewn doors to give the Castello a classic Tuscan feel. You’ll find many other architectural treats too numerous to mention. As you drive up the steep driveway lined with Italian cyprus trees, you will first notice a tiny chapel on your right and then, like a dream, the luxurious Castello will appear on the horizon. The structure has eight levels, four underground and four above

A taste of Tuscany in the Napa Valley ground. It has 107 rooms, 97 of which are dedicated to the making and aging of the Castello’s award-winning wines, which are sold exclusively at the winery. Outside the walls of the Castello you will immediately find some hints of Tuscan culture. Free-range chickens roam the grounds and olive trees are in abundance. Thirty-one-acres of estate vineyards surround the property, with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sangiovese, and Primitivo providing rich and complex hillside fruit each harvest for the winery’s foodfriendly, Italian-style wines. When taking a guided tour inside the Castello you’ll learn how the 13th Century architecture was meticulously recreated. You can visit the courtyard which is the center of life in any medieval palace, see the Great Hall, be amazed by the Roman cross vaulted ceilings in the Grand Barrel Room and, of course, you’ll want to drink in the breathtaking views of the Napa Valley from the terraces. Castello di Amorosa is a state-of-the-art winemaking facility with steel jacketed fermentation tanks and French oak barrels that perfectly age wine. Guests can taste from a wide variety

of Italian-style wines, including Pinot Grigio, Sangiovese, and Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as their highly acclaimed reserve wines, which have received high praise from the likes of Robert Parker and Wine Enthusiast magazine. Come see and taste for yourself the magic of Castello di Amorosa.

This allows you to taste very expensive wines that were previously inaccessible without buying the entire bottle. The good news is that some wineries apply the reserve tasting fee to your wine purchase.

NAPA VALLEY America’s Legendary Wine & Food Region ALFRESCO DINING This Italian term literally means “out in the fresh air.” Alfresco dining is a great option in the Napa Valley where indoor spaces naturally flow to the outdoors. It is the perfect place to dine outdoors because the average daytime temperature is between 65°F and 85°F during three seasons of the year. You can experience patios or terraces with vineyard views, panoramic views and golf course views and even dine near an outdoor fireplace. If the weather is cool, many restaurants will have outdoor heaters to take off the chill.

CALIFORNIA AND/OR WINE COUNTRY CUISINE

Waters, the chef at Chez Panisse in Berkeley, is credited with creating the California Cuisine culinary style.

TAPAS OR SMALL PLATES The Spanish culture brings us this great tradition and allows us to sample a variety of tastes that showcase a chef ’s culinary talents. Tapas literally means “covers,” which were small food bowls put on the tops of wineglasses to keep flies out. In a tapas bar, these small plates are a great way to pair a variety of different tastes with the many wonderful wines of the Valley. It is acceptable to share tapas and is also encouraged.

CORKAGE

In this style of restaurant, the chef uses the freshest ingredients possible. Since California supports so much diverse agriculture, this is easier to do year-round and Napa Valley chefs have embraced the philosophy to the point of farmto-table freshness. Fusion of different cooking styles is also a characteristic of this cuisine and strong attention to presentation is important. The chef may buy ingredients from a nearby ranch or a local farmers’ market or even grow some items on-site. Menus may change daily depending upon what is in season and at the peak of quality at the local market. Alice

This is the charge for opening a bottle of wine brought to a restaurant. Bringing your own bottle of wine to a restaurant may be frowned upon in other parts of the country, but is a common practice in the Napa Valley. If you bring a bottle purchased at a winery or wine shop, expect to pay $10-20 per bottle in corkage fees. There are exceptions, so ask when you make a reservation. Some restaurants will waive the corkage fee if you buy another bottle from their wine list. A good option is to take a red varietal and buy a white wine from the restaurant’s wine list. Don’t bring an inexpensive wine because it may cost more with the corkage fee than if you buy the house wine at the restaurant.

“Into Autumn” 30" x 40" Oil Paul Youngman, OPA

Paul Youngman has rapidly become one of California’s well-known painters. He paints the Wine Country with breathtaking beauty, as well as the rugged California coastline and rolling hills with oaks. His paintings are real, rich in color and depth. Youngman’s collectors include Leon Panetta, Muhammad Ali, Dole Pineapple Corporation and collectors worldwide. Several of Youngman’s paintings were featured in the 2008 movie Bottle Shock starring Bill Pullman and Alan Rickman. Having studied at the Art Institute in Pasadena, James Crandall has had a long career as a concept illustrator in the advertising and motion picture industry. In recent years, he has shifted his attention to traditional easel painting. At home in Northern California and on travels, he finds subject matter in everyday life. Crandall is always looking for an intriguing play of light, or the unstaged gestures of people at work or at play. A reunion with relatives in Italy (his mother’s side) sparked the creation of a series of paintings depicting life in his grandfather’s hometown of Lucca in Northern Tuscany. Wayne McKenzie’s art emanates a laid back confidence that is a

reflection of his Australian upbringing. With loose brushwork and bold use of color, he brings a unique perspective to the contemporary North American art world. His strong sense of design is derived from the Aboriginal art of his native Australia. His paintings are a visual journey that allows the essence of his subject matter come to life. Established in 1985 by Lee Love Youngman, and now one of California’s leading galleries, Lee Youngman Galleries features a broad selection of work by more than thirty important national and regional artists—the finest group of artists anywhere in the Wine Country.

spas R e J u V e N AT i oN Spa Terra, located in the “Heart of the Earth,” features natural curative treatments along with steam grottos, whirlpool baths and a relaxation lounge. This unique spa is unparalleled in luxury and was ranked one of the Top 100 Spas in America.

D i s c o v e r J u s t t h e R i g h t Tr e a t m e n t Spas and Wellness Centers offer a wide variety of relaxing therapies and treatments. Packages and treatments are as varied as the number of spas. Heart patients, diabetics and those with arteriosclerosis should consult with their physicians as body temperatures and pulse rate can change rapidly.

ChoosE A MASSAGE STYLE

Our hurried lifestyles are rather stressful and the body doesn’t relax and function at its full capacity. A spa treatment along with soothing music and a relaxing atmosphere provides a sense of well-being for the body.

A massage is not only relaxing but can improve circulation and relieve congestion throughout the body. You may encounter numerous massage styles in the Napa Valley. The following list is an example of some of the more popular styles you will encounter.

MUD BATHS AND WRAPS Mud baths are usually found in areas where volcanic ash and hot spring water can be combined. This treatment is extremely soothing to the joints. A mud wrap on the other hand can be any type of mud mixture that is rubbed or brushed on and is typically used to enhance the skin. MINERAL BATH OR POOL These are geothermally heated mineral pools or baths. A bath will be much more private than a pool and a pool sometimes gets its heat from a heater. HOT STEAM BATH / SHOWER The natural question is how is this different from a sauna? A sauna gains its heat from water being thrown on a stone. The air is typically hotter and dryer. By contrast a steam bath gains its heat by the introduction of hot steam. The temperature is usually quite mild compared to a sauna and it is 100% humid. Sometimes oils or perfumes are added to the steam to enhance the experience.

HERBAL HOT BLANKET WRAP The blanket typically has a linen component to it and is heated by a solution of hot water. A variety of herbs can be added to the wrap and/or water to enhance the cleansing effect that is desired. This raises the body temperature very quickly, in the attempt to sweat out toxins in your system. It is often combined with another treatment. FACIALS These are a specialty of the Napa Valley. It includes cleansing, exfoliation, oxygenating, hydration and a relaxing massage. Treatments can be varied to deal with specific skin types.

Aromatherapy Therapeutic massage combining fragrant oils for added health benefits. Deep Tissue The therapist uses knuckles, forearms and elbows to lengthen and deeply work the muscles to release tension. Good for stimulating circulation. Lymphatic A rhythmic massage and stimulation of pressure points that work on the lymphatic system and strengthen the immune system. Reflexology Applied pressure on certain key areas of the feet and/or hands that stimulates the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Shiatsu A Japanese finger-pressure massage used to stretch and open energy points in the body and reduce stress. Shiatsu massages are usually done while you are fully clothed, so wear loose-fitting clothing. Sports An active, full-body massage for professional and amateur athletes that specifically works on the muscle groups that get the most stress. Swedish or Therapeutic A soothing full-body massage that stimulates circulation and reduces stress and muscle tension. Choose a gentle or firm massage.

A Place for all seasons W h a t e v e r t h e S e a s o n , N a p a Va l l e y i s a Wo n d e r f u l P l a c e t o V i s i t Summer Summer will lure you with golden hills, lush vines and the warmth of the sun. Evenings can be cool, so bring a wrap for outdoor dining and for an evening to enjoy an outdoor concert. The Robert Mondavi Summer Music Festival is a popular series in July and August.

Fall Autumn presents the fragrance of the Crush and a patchwork of reds, golds and greens. Get your reservations early for this popular time of year. You may want to attend the Napa Valley Film Festival and Flavor! Napa Valley, events that are fast becoming world renowned.

Winter Vivid yellow mustard amid the sleeping vines and lush green hills invite you to sip wine next to a cozy fireplace. No wonder this time of the year has become known as “Cabernet Season.” The combination of Napa Valley Restaurant Month, January, and sipping Cabernet makes winter a perfect time for visiting.

Spring Spring bursts forth with an unbelievable bouquet of color— all the natural beauty that you could imagine. Napa Valley Arts In April celebrates the art collections in wineries, and near the end of this season are four glorious days of festivities known as Auction Napa Valley, The American Wine Classic.

climate The Napa Valley enjoys a year-round average daytime temperature of 70° Fahrenheit. Several microclimates vary the temperature substantially from the early morning to the evening and create variances at the same time of day between northern and southern locations. The dress is casual and the “layered look” is both functional and advisable for day to evening activities (evenings can be chilly and up to 30°F cooler than the daytime). Because it is a Mediterranean climate, it tends to rain mostly between December and February. The rain, however, makes winter one of the most beautiful seasons with vibrant green grass and brilliant yellow mustard flowers.
