If you've read the latest issue of Garden Design, you couldn't miss the feature on the winery gardens at Rudd Oakville Estate. Now we've got the bug for winery gardens and we're discovering that wine country visitors these days are as interested in what is growing outside the winery as what is fermenting inside the cellars. Here is a glimpse of the garden at Castello di Amorosa, where edibles and flowers are grown. This property was home to some of the first fruit trees in the Napa Valley, so they have replanted over 40 different kinds of fruit trees in honor of the history. Visit me on the blog for more winery gardens in the weeks to come.
