About the Horse-drawn carriage company:
All Seasons Carriage Company, Inc from Acampo, CA provides the carriage and the Percheron draft horses for the vineyard tour at the Castello. Displaying “team effort,” the horses- Rocket and Winston- can easily pull their weight up and down hills. Originally bred as war horses, these 2,000 pound salt and pepper draft horses gently pull the carriage to the Sangiovese vineyard where guests learn about how wine is made starting in the vineyard.
About Castello di Amorosa:

Following fourteen years of construction, Dario Sattui opened Castello di Amorosa on April 9, 2007. Situated in the hills above Calistoga, Castello di Amorosa- a family-owned winery- produces world-class wines which are sold only at the winery direct to the consumer. The castle winery was made with brick, wood and iron imported from Europe and combined with over 8,000 tons of local, Napa Valley stone. Today, Castello di Amorosa, a popular Napa Valley destination, offers a variety of wine tasting and touring options in a unique Tuscan castle setting.
