In this episode, Jeff tastes two Chardonnay samples from the same year, vineyard, and winery. The difference? One of them was aged in a concrete egg!

Wines Tasted:

Castello di Amorosa 2013 Bien Nacido Vineyard Chardonnay and 2013 La Rocca Bien Nacido Vineyard Chardonnay

Castello di Amorosa 2013 Bien Nacido Vineyard Chardonnay and 2013 La Rocca Bien Nacido Vineyard Chardonnay

Stay Rad,

Jeff

    Nice post, StayRad,
    I’d like to try Castello, but I can’t find it anywhere in stores.
    Do you know of a location in the SF Bay Area where it’s available?
    Thanks,
    Pete

    Hi Pete,
    Castello di Amorosa is a direct to consumer winery, so you won’t find it any stores. You can purchase the wines online at their website here… http://www.castellodiamorosa.com/Wines
    I have also seen a few bottles on Amazon here… http://amzn.to/1gIoN7W
    However, if you live in the Bay Area, I would take a day trip to Napa and do a tasting at the winery. That way you could narrow down which of their wines you prefer, and buy whatever you want without having to pay shipping. Here’s a link to their different tasting options… http://www.castellodiamorosa.com/Visit-Us
    Let me know what you end up doing.
    Stay Rad,
    Jeff
