Wine Country Day 1- Calistoga, CA

 Castello di Amorosa Winery- need I say more?

 Lunch spot outside of Castello di Amorosa.  Not bad?

 Happy place.

 Joanne trying to pick up an emu.  Emu not interested in humans.  Go figure!

 Wine tasting at Up Valley Vintners- so much fun. 
Us with owner of Barlow Vineyards,  Mr. Smith, and his great 2012 Sauvignon Blanc.

A MUST- Golden Haven Spa.  Couples mud bath.  Looks yucky, but it is WONDERFUL!
After in the mud, which is hot, the attendant waits on you: puts cold compresses on your head, gives you cold water, and places a face mask as you "float" on mud.  After you shower, you get into a mineral jacuzzi.  Then, you are taken to the relaxation room where you're wrapped and put to a nap!  What else can I say?

Joanne heaven.  Bosko's Trattoria.  Gluten-free heaven.  Pizza, pasta, and entrees all GF.
We had the GF pizza, half applewood smoked pepperoni and half sausage and mushrooms (the waitress, Nicole, told us the GF crust is actually better), and then we had the chicken marsala (GF)-  so delicious that Melissa tried to decompose the ingredients to make it back home!!  Thanks to our RV host (reception) who is also GF and told us of this place only .5 mile from the campground (in "downtown" Calistoga)
