    Wandered into a spot that could be a great location for a photo shoot (Too bad I have limited skills and a point & shoot). Of course there are outstanding roads in the area too. Now name this place.

    The stone building looks like a fine winery. :)

    Why do I think the Lambo Club America is doing an event at Amorosa in 2008? (Vague recollection.)

    Good eye hpdt00.
    Thanks Kirb - that's quite an endorsement coming from a pro.
    Justice - it would be quite a scene filling the courtyard with Lambos.

    Didn't take the tour. Just did the self-guided thing, bought some dessert wine and took this shot from inside the tower:

    Were you in one of the Ferraris (red 360, red 430 Spider) that exchanged waves with us?
