A historical backdrop, medieval tournament, wine cellar feast, and a starlit dessert soirée; it might sound like a scene from a fairytale, but it was the reality crafted by Blueprint Studios at Castello di Amorosa in Napa Valley.
When it comes to creating one-of-a-kind experiences, Blueprint Studios knows how to conjure magic. This event was no exception. From jousting knights to a candlelit dinner in a wine cellar, followed by a dessert reception under the stars, this event was a transportive experience right out of the pages of a storybook.
Castello di Amorosa, a Tuscan-style castle and winery located in Napa Valley, was the perfect setting for this enchanting event. The castle, a 121,000-square-foot fortress set upon a sprawling 171 acres, complete with a drawbridge, moat, chapel, and even a torture chamber, served as the idyllic backdrop for a medieval-themed celebration.
The event kicked off with a reception like no other. Guests were greeted at the castle gates with goblets of wine before entering a medieval world of wonder. As the sun set over the Napa Valley, the courtyard was alive with the sights and sounds of a medieval tournament. Knights in shining armor jousting, sword-fighting demonstrations, and falconry displays entertained guests as they mingled and sipped on the finest wines from the Castello’s collection.
As the tournament concluded, guests were ushered into the Castello’s Grand Barrel Room, a stunning cellar lined with oak barrels filled with aging wine. Here, a family-style feast awaited, with long wooden tables adorned with candelabras, lush greenery, and an assortment of delectable shared dishes that encouraged conversation and camaraderie.
From roasted meats and seasonal vegetables to artisanal cheeses and freshly baked bread, the meal was a celebration of the region’s bounty, perfectly paired with Castello di Amorosa’s award-winning wines.
The Dessert Reception
The evening culminated in a dessert reception held in the castle’s romantic courtyard. As the stars twinkled overhead, guests indulged in an array of sweet treats, from decadent chocolate truffles to delicate pastries, all while being serenaded by a live band.
The entertainment continued with a spectacular fire dancing show that left guests in awe. As the flames danced in the night sky, the event’s magical atmosphere was sealed in the memories of all who attended.
