We came here for a tasting and had six lovely wines in the very well recreated renaissance feel castle. The castle is a lovingly crafted replica and is worth a visit in itself. The banquet hall is spot on for the era. The tasting rooms are in the cellar and the Italian girl who served us was very helpful, friendly... More

The staff at Castello di Amorosa continued the level of excellance maintained by the Napa Wine Train staff. The tour was really fun - the castle is amazing - and the guide was truelllyu skilled in humor and stories. It... More

This place is a must if you are visiting the Napa Valley. My wife and I came down the Oregon Coast and saw many beautiful sights, but this place is unreal! Great tasting wine, beautiful sights and a castle that can't be seen anywhere else in north america. We were very impressed with our guide Tim. He was very enthusiastic... More

We had a great time at the castle. I love all things medieval so the tour was really fun for me. We were told to pay the extra charge for the "reserve" wine so we did, and we tasted some really good wine. Now I am not wine connoisseur, I don't taste blackberries, a hint of tobacco and currants from... More

This was by far the best and most fun experience I had in a winery. The castle structure of Castello di Amoroso will transport you back in times to knighthood and chivalry as soon as you walked through the doors. I would highly recommend you go on the tour which takes you through the upper part of the castle and... More

Visited with friends after a weekend in Sonoma/Napa, thought a novel castle/vineyard would be a fun way to end the weekend. We purchased the self guided tour for $20 which included limited access to the castle and a tasting. Touring the castle was unimpressive having been to real forts/castles, however it is beautiful from the outside and it's cool how... More

Castles are awesome, no matter the age or setting. Therefore this place is awesome, which is true. It's definitely fun touring the castle and pretending you are in medieval Florence. The wines are drinkable and enjoyable. A great place to visit. Just note that the wines aren't world-class, or even Napa-class, but still very good.

Not only is the wine some of the best in the Valley but the tour of the castle is great! It is really authentic and the attention to detail is incredible.

A surprising Italian castle in the middle of Napa valley, with great wines and an interesting tour from a funny tour guide. We left happy and a bit tipsy.
