Castillo de Feliciana Vineyard & Winery is named after my great Aunt, Feliciana. However, when I was a little girl growing up I only knew her as Aunt Tana or Tia Tana. She was the sister to my grandfather on my mom’s side. She lived alone most of her life. She was married to a Spaniard but did not have children. My mom used to take us to visit her when we were little. She didn’t speak very much English. When we’d visit, she somehow knew that my brother and I were bored and would tell us to go and get gum from her purse (a little black purse she kept in her bedroom). I remember the scent of that purse. It smelled like roses (floral) from her face powder, fruity – from the Juicy Fruit gum, a little musty because it was old, a little bit of tobacco (although my mom says she never smoked), and of course, it smelled of leather.
It is our hope to provide you with outstanding wine and a memorable experience for you, your family and friends. Our winery design was inspired by the Southern region of Spain called Andalucia where the majestic blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean meets up with the stark white buildings and Terra Cotta tile roofs of Los Pueblos Blancos.
