It's a gorgeous property, but then that's what it really is! Because it is so beautiful, mobs show up all the time, and consequently, the wine tasting experience in their cellar is turned into a rather suffocating experience. As such the fee for the tastings is a bit high. Their wines didn't bowl us over either. We would absolutely recommend... More

Spectacular wines only available on site and mail club. Visit a castle (built from 1987 - took about 17 years). Yes, this is a brand new castle built in N. California. Save your money on the Scotland trip and tour the castle....attend a wine harvest or holiday event and save your airplane flight money to buy their outstanding wine collection.... More

Castello di Amorosa is a must see winery at the far end of Napa Valley, but well worth the journey. The castle was fashioned in 12th Century architecture and made you feel like you went back in time. Great wine tasting facility.

The locals told me about this castle, and we were happy we took the self-guided tour and the delicious wine-tasting downstairs. We had a wonderful host and we loved the wine so much we joined the wine club (which all wineries want you to do.) Delicious wine. Incomparable property. Definitely go see it, and take your photos in the royal... More

Couldn't pass up a tour of a castle during our first wine tasting experience in the valley. We opted for the self-guided tour. I was disappointed that I didn't spend the money for the guided tour when I realized that the self-guided tour did not include touring the dungeons and lower-lower levels of the castle. There were several areas that... More

It might seem a bit kitsch but it's actually quite an authentic building and there are a number of surprising wines - the dry Gewurtztraminer, the zingaro, la castellana. I was surprised by the high quality from what seemed initially to be a high volume tourist trap - as it turned out, it was more of a boutique experience. Oh... More

Awesome yearly event, Halloween Party. Class act with flowing wine and lots of great food. Amazing ambience with a well done haunted house and dance hall. Loads of energy and wonderful staff. Couldn't asked for a better Halloween. The castle is a must see a any time on a visit to Napa. See you next year.
