The castle was lovely and our guide was very knowledgeable. We took a guided tour and chose the reserve tasting with chocolate. We felt the prices were very fair. We were there on a Saturday and it was very crowded. We felt it was well worth the money to get the guided reserve tour as there was only one other... More

I took my mom to Castello di Amorosa during a day trip to Napa to celebrate her birthday. It was truly an amazing sight to see. As you're driving up to the castle, the road winds and is flanked by tall cypress trees. As you reach the top of the hill, you see the castle. It's so incredible how someone's... More

From looking at the advertisements you think you're going to get a significant tour of the castle. Unfortunately, that was not the case. You only go through 2 floors not seeing the majority of the castle. It is beautiful, but I was left wanting much more. The wine tasting was pretty standard as well. Nothing exceptional about it. We did... More

Wonderful, beautiful castle. $25 entry fee includes wine tasting in the basement. Go early because it gets very busy very quickly. We had a knowledgeable fellow, serving us and telling us about the wines. A bit energetic and brusque, slightly condescending but also spread thin. There was a beautiful gift shop, and it was nice to be allowed to wander... More

I travel to Napa Valley for a week every year so I'm used to all sorts of wine tasting experiences. I have never experienced such a hard sell used car salesman type experience as I did here. First off you have to pay a minimum of $25 per person just to get into the place...then when we made it through... More

We did the castle tour and wine/cheese tasting. Our tour guide was amazing! She was very knowledgeable about the history of the winery during the tour and also about the wines and cheeses that we tasted. There were 10 people at our table but our hostess was able to spend time with each of us to find out what type... More

Very pricey. Great views of the surrounding area. Would have liked to share a tasting, but they did not offer this. This is one of the higher points and enables one to view the vines growing on the hillside.
