After spending a couple days in San Francisco at a legal conference for work, I decided to take a quick trip up to Napa and visit my favorite vineyard and also the new one owned by Darryl Sattui (Castillo di Amorosa) which opened in April 2007.
In all the years I've been a member and visiting Sattui, I never have seen Darryl Sattui or Tom Davies (the President). We were getting a tour and out in the vineyard Tom Davies actually drove up and talked to us for a bit. When he found out Scott and I met because we shared Sattui as our favorite vineyard, he was clever enough to remind us they do weddings there! Uuuuuh, awkward moment......ok! LOL. Later on when we were back down in the Cellar Club, Darryl Sattui walked in to hand out Christmas gifts to the Cellar Managers. What a fun time!
Jay who used to be the long time Cellar Club Manager at Sattui had recently left but came back about a week ago! He always takes excellent care of the members but he treated us like royalty. I am one of their Gold Club Members so we have access to the private room and he let us go get our picnic food and eat down there by ourselves which was just an awesome time!
