Our tour guide was fantastic. The grounds are beautiful and the wines were tastey. What turned me off were the men at the tasting bar in the gift shop area. One dude looked at me as I walked up and stood at the bar and straight turned around! Another dude looked at me multiple times and refused to acknowledge me... More

Very pretty castle--quite popular, too. Tours are conducted for a fee, wine tasting is in addition to tour fees. If membership is initiated you then receive free tours, benefits etc. so definitely taste first. We can't wait to return and really explore the whole castle. The 2nd tier was more to my liking than the first and we purchased several... More

My sister very kindly gave me a $250 gift certificate from this winery, but the amount was not applied. It took me a couple of shipments to realize that I was being charged for the wine--which is not inexpensive--and when I called the winery there was confusion about this issue, which is not yet resolved. The wines are good, the... More

I would HIGHLY recommend doing this so but we did the Wine & Cheese tour instead. The castle goes without saying that it is stunning and while doing the wine tour they tell you all about the history of the man who made it and how it was made like an authentic Italian castle. The staff were very friendly and... More

This was the first stop on our wine tour and also our favorite. As soon as you pull into the winery you feel like you're in Tuscany, there are wild chickens running around, sheep and goats can be seen on the winery grounds as well. We participated in the wine tasting during our tour. The late harvest Gewurtztraminer and La... More

We are from Europe and we visit Italy on a regular base, so we knew what to expect and our expectations were high! And the only thing we can say is this: how tasteful and how realistic is this winecastle decorated and build. Compliments! They only minor point is the admission: to expensive in our opinion!

We went as a group of six and had a great time. We opted for the tasting without the tour but still walked around the castle a bit. The castle cat wasn't too happy with our trying to take his picture and kept clawing at us. The wines are decent. You come more for the atmosphere than the wine itself.... More

I have been going to Napa Valley for wine tasting for years but this is the first time I visited Castello di Amorosa. A friend of mine who is a member introduced us to this place. It was different from any of the places I have gone for wine tasting. The place is unique and the wine selection superb. We... More
