Join us for a journey through the Castle and its Italian heritage. Connect with owner Dario Sattui, Director of Winemaking Brooks Painter, President Georg Salzner and our food & wine sommelier Mary Davidek for a virtual tasting to explore the food and wine of Italy. During this event we taste through four Italian wines while embarking on an Italian journey. You will have the opportunity to learn about the history of Dario’s inspiration for the property, along with the chance to ask Dario & Brooks your burning questions – live! Each pack included access to our exclusive virtual event, our 2019 Pinot Grigio, 2019 Gioia, 2016 Sangiovese and 2015 Il Brigante, along with a perfectly paired authentic Italian meal for 4 people. We feature our spaghetti with pasta sauce and basil grapeseed oil.

♦ One bottle of 2015 Il Brigante, Red Blend, this lusty brigand "borrows" aromas of cassis and spice from its Cabernet-based Napa Valley blend. Pretty aromas of red currant and black cherry mingle with black fruits with a touch earthy, cured meat aromas that frame the wild berry flavors and toasty oak on the palate. The wine shows polish with a good balance between acidity and round and ripe flavors. Finishes with moderate, well-integrated tannins. Delicious and supple now, it will continue to improve for several more years to come.
♦ One bottle of 2016 Sangiovese, Napa Valley, a classic Italian varietal wine with aromas of dried strawberry, red cherry, rhubarb, and sweet exotic spices framed by supple, toasty oak.
♦ One bottle of 2019 Gioia, Rosato di Sangiovese, an Italian style rosé with a beautiful rosy-red garnet color, bursting with bright wild berry and melon flavors. A perfect summer sipping wine.
♦ One bottle of 2019 Pinot Grigio, North Coast, a lively and crisp dry white wine with zesty citrus and melon aromas, bright acidity, and a refreshing, fruity finish. A perfect afternoon picnic wine.
♦ One bottle of Pasta Sauce, imported from Italy.
♦ One box of Spaghetti, this Spaghetti imported from Italy, is the Long Pasta Leonessa, made from durum wheat semolina. It is a staple food of traditional Italian cuisine. A variety of pasta dishes are based on it, and it is frequently served with tomato sauce or meat or vegetables or any ingredient as you like.
♦ One bottle of Basil Grapeseed Oil, this is a favorite drizzled over tomatoes and mozzarella cheese. Toss in with pastas or salads for a bright, fresh and authentic taste.
