We visited this place last summer. It is a bit of a tourist trap, but we nontheless had a very enjoyable afternoon. The grounds are very picturesque, with small farm animals all about. The wine testing session was really not informative, as our sommellier was somewhat arrogant and the wine was not as good as previous places we had tried.... More

We had been to a couple other wineries on the day we visited Castello di Amorosa. We were concerned that it was a bit of a tourist trap and our concerns were both confirmed and...well, confirmed, but we enjoyed parts of it dispite ourselves. The castle is a very unique homage to European castles and very well done. We took... More

WOW!!! This place is amazing. The place is very easy to get to. We stayed in Napa and it is only about 24 miles from where we stayed and is off the main road. There are plenty of signs directing you where to go so that you are confident in navigating to the vineyard. Napa can be so overwhelming with... More

A friend took me there, was a great way to spend the afternoon. The guy who explains how and why it was built there is excellent guide. And the wine tasting is good though I'm not an expert in wines is an amazing way to learn more about it and the process how it is produced. Great view of the... More

Amazingly built, looks and feels like medieval times,from the chapel to the torture chamber.. The great room was absolutely spectacular just as the courtyard.. So many tunnels and wine barrels we were in awe. We even got to met Mr. Dario the owner and designer. Sorry to say Dario and our tour guide were the friendliest.. The people pouring the... More

Angie from guest service set me up with a tour and tasting. This place will blow your mind with the amount of detail owner Dario injected into this establishment. Carrie was probably one of the most knowledgeable tour guides I have ever encountered. Oh yeah and the wines are spectacular as well. Thanks again!

A gorgeous setting matched with delicious wines! Walking though the castle was an experience in itself.

Hubby and I loved this winery. Beautiful just beautiful. Yes, the entrance fee is $$ but you're in Napa and really this is a must see and experience. Their attentions to detail is right on point. Tour guide Chris, was great and very informative. Wines were delicious!! You really can't come to Napa and not see this!!

The castle is very beautiful and worth a look. It's a little crowded with tourists and the wine tasting room is pretty crowded. Over all the wine wasn't my favorite but we enjoyed walking the grounds and looking at the beautiful estate.

We went here based on a recommendation of a friend who said it was just interesting to see the castle, but a little expensive to get in. We didn't realize we would have to pay an entrance fee to get in to do tasting (should have an option to just pay for tasting only). We went to V Sattui and... More
