Nothing beats the stunning views of the grounds- from the vineyard, to the castle, to the outlook over Napa Valley. We thought it'd be a good idea to buy the tour package to allow us access to some of the areas not offered to the general public. However, we found the tour to be very drawn out & at times... More

My friends and I went to the Castello thanks to some great Yelp reviews this past weekend and we couldn't have been more pleased. Vincenzo takes the pretentious out of wine tasting and was hilarious, informative and genuinely happy to have us there. We were happy to listen and you will be too. Let's be real, you go for the...

This castle/winery is a MUST DO when in the Napa region. The tour was excellent and ..well.. we loved the wine so much we get our first shipment this week : ) DO NOT go to Napa without checking this out!

I have three children ages 13, 11, and 7, and we visited this place. We were glad to come here: so many opportunities to take good photos (if you are interested in photography) with your family. It takes you to an old world feeling in the castle, plus the beautiful overlook of the vineyards once you are up peeking from... More

This was an absolutely fantastic experience. Tasting excellent quality wines in the most romantic setting in this medieval style Tuscan castle. Gotta say, it didn't hurt that our host at the tasting, Vincenzo, was not just knowledgeable, but so entertaining--the ladies in our party were delighted and the men were happy the ladies were happy. A win-win for all! Seriously,... More

There was no castle the last time we went to Napa so we had to go. Impressive and the views are some of the best in the valley. Wine teasing in the cellar was crowded but nice.

I had never heard of Castello di Amorosa - my parents and I just happened to pass it while driving through Napa and decided to stop in. We were SO glad we did! The castle was carefully researched and built with "authentic" materials and with the "original" methods you would've found in Italy 700-800 years ago. In fact, when I... More

This is a beautiful castle along with the surrounding area. The tour guide was very good, about a 2 hour tour with wine tasting. Actually reasonably generous with the wine. You can't miss this one in NAPA, although I can see that sometimes it might be difficult to get a reservation. book ahead if possible. Certianly more than a wine... More

Yes, even the kids can go and have grape juice. The adults get five samples each and you can purchase any or all of your favorites. The "castle" is a fine tour - self-guided and makes for good pictures. They even have a "castle cat" on the property! This was a very relaxing and enjoyable break in Napa Valley and... More

This was an interesting site to visit. Take the tour. The work that went into building the castle is impressive. You go deep into the castle floors to do the wine tasting. The wine choices were very tasty. The views throughout the tour lends itself well for photographs. This could be enjoyable for the whole family.
