Stepped inside a fairytale, a 10 year old medieval castle made of breathtaking stonework…filled with colorful medieval frescoes depicting age of old–kings, knights, noble crests.

I was imaginitively raptured to a century where lords and ladies sat around a table and drank their wine from goblets while drinking in the melodies of minstrels–the setting of a monarch’s dinner after an entertaining joust on the castle grounds while the sun was still in the air.

This was the setting of my 21st birthday–but rather than goblets, I drank from a wine glass that put the potent liquid on display. Rather than a joust, I went on a wine tour and heard the more brief history of the castle, only a decade, not a century old but the spirit of the Arthurian age about it.

I practically spun around and frolicked in my black cotton dress–in the dining hall and exterior alike. The grandiose skirt was perfect for twirling, pretending to dance at a castle soirée. Maybe for my land of make believe I was underdressed, or wrongly dressed century-wise, but the bows on my sleeves and red lipstick did fancy it up a bit!

So I walked and swayed in my ensemble and the perfect pair of shoes: brown leather Fendi’s. While they may have not been the most comfortable, they did complete the outfit and make me feel like a princess!

The drone shots are brought to you by the photography genius of my brother, Sean Vartan and proud founder of Sparrow Drone Productions! Definitely check out his work if you’re looking for a drone photographer! For now on the blog, keep a look out for my next Napa stop: the Domaine Carneros Winery!
