“Goia” By Castello di Amorosa
About 5 years ago, I went to California on business for one month. It changed my life.
I went to Napa and Sonoma Valleys up North, and I went to the Korbel Champagnerie, Benziger Winery, and Castello di Amorosa Winery. Castello di Amorosa is a castle – literally. Click here to take a virtual tour of the amazing architecture!
The founder of the winery built his own personal castle that grows and makes wine – a 13th century, Tuscan castle and winery.
Rosato di Sangiovese
Goia is “an Italian style rose with a rosy-red garnet color, bursting with white plum, red raspberries, tart pomegranate and red delicious apple aromas.”
I was born elsewhere, but lived several years in Florida – I always pronounce it “FLAR-ih-duh”.
If you grew up there, you pronounce it “FLOOR-ih-duh”.
Actually, the latter is closest to the original Spanish name, but either pronunciation is acceptable. However, depending on which way you choose to say it, they can tell if you’re a native!
