Sand Castle Winery
Planted by hand in the 1980's, 56,000 special seedlings spiral toward the sun, spawning bundles of grapes that wait to be plucked and transformed into casks of delicious libations. The owners of the elegant winery and castle welcome guests to absorb the sight of the scenic vineyard, and step into the cool, climate-controlled cellar, before heading to the tasting room to sample wine. Large tasting rooms and an outdoor pavilion can also host private events on the regal grounds.
