Wine Trolley in Yountville
Love to explore!
Had a sunshiney beautiful day in the Yountville – St Helena – Calistoga area. Started our day with a delicious cup of coffee and pastry from Bouchon Bakery in the heart of Yountville, then boarded the Trolley for a day of fun. First stop was Castello di Amorosa for a 2 hour tour – one word….. FABULOUS! Bryan and I first visited when it opened in 2007, there was still quite a bit of construction going on. The tour, the guide (Joe), the wines and the ambiance were truly amazing. I was excited to try the Vermentino as it truly is one of my favorite whites and I enjoy how the aromas and pallet change via the different wine regions. Unfortunately, they were out of it so no taste for me :(. We did enjoy the zin and the dry gewürztraminer. Typically not a fan of this varietal but we enjoyed it so much, we bought a bottle to continue enjoying at home! The rose was quite delightful as well – so we purchased a bottle. All the wines we tasted (approx 10) were all really good. I highly recommend visiting!
Ended the day with nothing less than a scrumptious dinner at Bottega located in the V Market Place in Yountville. Murph (waiter) always goes above and beyond in ensuring our experience is special.
Love having fun exploring!
