Do yourself a favour and book the tour and tasting! I had a great time viewing and tasting along the way. The castle is extravagant and the wine is delicious. My only remorse is not buying more of the wine. I really can't imagine missing this while anywhere even close to the area...would be worth a drive!

Family vacation in SF with teens, this is a great vineyard tour. Greg our guide toured us around the castle and brought us down into the cellar for a tour of the wine making process. Very informative, the tour can be the major part of the experience if wine tasting is not the main objective.

Always one of our favorites in the valley. Castello has incredible grounds and an excellent tasting room where they are very generous with member tastings. If you want to feel like a king or queen, visit the Castle!

We spent a weekend in the Napa Valley and we were looking for something different from the endless wine-tasting experiences. Castello di Amorosa was highly recommended to us by the host of our B&B. His recommendation was spot on!! Castello di Amorosa is absolutely outstanding reproduction of a 13th century Tuscan castle which cleverly integrates a fully operational winery. I... More

This place is like a disney land but if you do not have spare time to spend, I recommend you to skip this place.

Did a tour and wine tasting with chocolate. WOW! Ended up having 6 bottles shipped home! Quite the experience for a Midwesterner. The ornate interior furnishings transport you back to Medieval, Renaissance era. On the day of our tour, there were period players in full dress. Did a lot of walking on the tour but the scenery inside and out... More

My wife and I recently visited the Castello di Amorosa on a trip to Napa and overall we enjoyed our visit. The castle itself is quite cool - they did a very good job of making it seem like a 500 year old building. We found their wines to be just OK, although we did order a half-case. The main... More

My wife insisted we go as she went several years ago on a girls trip. Beautiful setting with very impressive stone work throughout the Castle. Tasting room was well set but I was skeptical regarding the wines. Ended up purchasing several bottles of unique and very tasty blends. Now on our top ten must visits in Napa Valley!!
