Tour Castello Di Amaroso, Sattui Lunch & Calistoga

  • to
  • Pittsburg Bay Point BART Station

    1700 West Leland, Pittsburg, CA (map)

  • I'll wait near Peets wearing a beige sunhat.
  • Castello di Amorosa, an authentically-styled, 13th century Tuscan castle winery complete with high walls and five defensive towers and over 30 acres of estate vineyards, was built over a 14-year period by Dario Sattui, a fourth generation winemaker and owner of V. Sattui Winery in St. Helena, California.

    Tentatively, I plan to drive to Castello Di Amaroso stopping for a lunch break at Sattui Winery.  There's a great picnic area, wine tasting and a deli to buy lunch or bring your own lunch.  They charge $10 for wine tasting but will give you a free sample if you say you're the driver.  I might stop at Sutter Winery where I like the wine & free tastings or a winery of your choice.

     Then, we'll go to Castello Di Amaroso.  A self guided tour is $19 which includes tasting of 5 wines.  A standard tour is $34 taking 1 + 3/4 hours.  You probably should expect a lot of walking as the castle + grounds are large.

    Afterwards, we'll walk around Calistoga which shouldn't take long unless you partake in a mud bath.  I'll pass on that but I just want to see the town itself.

    It will be an all day trip.  Compare to tourist tours as it will cost about $100. 

    Your cost for gas would be $15.  I can only take 3 people in my car as it's a Hyundai.

    I'm the designated driver so not drinking much.

    If you want to drive, I can get you carpoolers if there's enough response.

    If interested, send money to me through paypal via my email: [masked].

    I cannot wait until the day I'm going as I need to know people are going and with the cost of gas, confirmation is necessary or I don't go.  It's about 80 miles each way not around the corner.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
