their Chardonnay that won in the 1976 Paris tasting – a blind tasting and it put
California wines on the map We are at Chateau Montelena! Look at how beautiful this is! Winery it’s a very popular spot we got

trees anybody knows what they are comment below. This is a vulture / wild
turkey it’s huge so this right here is a panorama of Calistoga it’s surrounded by
hills and vineyards. What do you think about Calistoga so far? Calistoga is amazing I’m so happy to be here! Calistoga – this is the place that you come to when you want peace
relaxation and a refuge from the bustling tech hub of the Bay Area in San
Francisco it’s really not that far and the road is very peaceful kind of windy. On the property is the jade gardens look at how beautiful and peaceful this is it’s famous Chardonnay started in so the chateau we just finished our
tasting it was incredible the Chardonnay the Chardonnay shined. This is a very
historic place opened in 1886 owned by an Irish family and it was featured in a
famous movie called Bottle Shock [music] look at this old train depot from 1868 at the castle and this is very unique
I’ve been wanting to go to this winery forever
this is castillo di Amorosa and it’s a castle built in 1993 modeled after
beautiful European castles in the middle of this beautiful peaceful surrounding we are going back in time hi guys we’re in Calistoga and we’re
inside a winery called Castillo di Amorosa and we are inside the chapel – look at how beautiful this is There’s murals here, it looks medieval. [medieval music] there’s this beautiful gift shop these
wine stoppers – they look like knights knights at the roundtable Hey guys I got a new travel
partner today check it out [silence] you excited to go wine tasting? he’s excited. [medieval music] this has gotta be the coolest tasting
room ever – I feel like I’m in the Medieval Times. I’ve never seen anything like this before
this is a medieval tuscan castle and it’s an architectural masterpiece
many of the tasting rooms are underground. What’s your favorite so far I like the
Pinot Noir I’m trying to Merlot though it’s very good nice the setting it’s a castle
with in the Calistoga valley surrounded by hills so this is another special
winery called Sterling and you take an aerial tram to get to the top it has one
of the best viewpoints in town as well as some of the best wine look at this
Mike found animals this is like part medieval times part
wine-tasting part petting zoo look we love the castello di amorosa the
wines were great I especially like the Pinot Noir
the Cabernet Sauvignon and the Guevara mine are delicious wines very special
place awesome recommend it yeah it was
medieval with the castle and the farm animals but it was enhanced by the great
wines we really enjoyed ourselves today still go wines passport it’s only $60
for this and it gets you into all the tastings and this is closed off so guys
if you’re looking for a quiet time to come here to Napa Valley region come in
January or December there’s not a lot going on during this time of the year it
slows down for the wineries the really busy times and the harvest season occurs
during August and September October so that’s when you can see the wine being
made a little more exciting but it’s also more crowded so this is Clopas ah
this is another really stunning property every single one of these properties in
Napa is just really stunning a lot of them have restaurants attached
to them that’s the new model now and the tastings are quite expensive if you buy
them each one so I recommend getting the passport we are inside the tasting room
this really beautiful building with beautiful glass chandelier so right now I’m trying the sauvignon blanc the grapes are grown in the southernmost part of Valley here and
some of the grapes are grown on the hills here on the estate they also have a
wine cave here but you have to book in advance. redwoods reserve! so one hour from Calistoga
one hour north is the Armstrong Redwoods State Park absolutely gorgeous here as
you can see and the trees are so tall. so many beautiful trails we’re an Armstrong Redwoods State Park look at this moss it doesn’t even look real
it didn’t exactly bring the right shoes for this that’s okay –
oh my god redwoods! These my friends are redwoods. I’m walking straight through a redwood. This tree knows
all the secrets look at this cute village I found it’s
called Rio Nido and goes up into the hills. You can see my breath.
