Savor Distinct Flavors and Scenic Views of San Francisco
Your delicious excursion begins right when you arrive in San Francisco at Ghirardelli Square’s Cheese School. Learn the secrets of how your favorite morsels are crafted and paired during a hands-on lesson and tasting with a certified cheesemonger. You’ll enjoy a selection of charcuterie, roasted vegetables, and artisanal cheeses while gazing out over San Francisco Bay.
The next day, savor the United States’ original artisan olive oil with the man who first extracted it at Figone Olive Oil Company. You’ll become a connoisseur as you sample delicious dollops of the mill’s extra-virgin, citrus, and savory oils, as well as aged balsamic vinegars, straight from their stainless-steel tanks. Then blend your own vinaigrette and learn helpful food-pairing tips during a hands-on seminar.
Next, venture to Calistoga and the “castle of love,” Castello di Amorosa. This 13th century-style Tuscan chateau overlooks more than 30 acres of gorgeous estate vineyards and only opened its doors (and bottles of fine wine) to the public in 2007.
You will be greeted with wine tastings and appetizers inside the castle. Walk among the formidable ramparts and picturesque towers during a guided tour, and explore the castle’s underground tunnels and armory, all while tasting the vineyard’s fine wines along the way.
You’ll conclude your tour by raising a glass during your three-course dinner in the castle’s breathtaking dining hall. Bask in the warm glow from iron-wrought and admire the hall’s brick archways as your private chef guides you through perfectly paired culinary creations and wines of Castello di Amorosa.
