Castello DI Amorosa
Castello DI Amorosa was a winery castle built in the 13th century, located in Napa, California. I spent my 22nd birthday here and learned new things about wine.
The castle featured amazing architectural design.
A look at the main entrance of the castle. Approaching those doors felt like I was in a Disney movie. Those pillars on top of the castle give a fantastic view of the surrounding vineyards.
Here we have a zoo like area in the yard of the castle. Multiple animals were here, but ostriches in particular.
Here is a that came out to greet everyone.
Wine barrels in the cellar. It was fascinating to learn how long wine last. Some of these have been around for over one hundred years. They must keep a degree of temperature to keep the wine properly maintained.
Down into the torture chamber. Back in the medieval times, the average height was 5'6, So the door archways required some ducking to go into. Here we can also see some tools that could've been used for torture, It seems like a preparation area.
People probably has seen one of these doors a lot on cartoons or TV shows. An interesting fact about the spikes is they do not penetrate, only poke.
