Do not be deterred by negative reviews and see it for yourself. So glad we did! The winery is beautiful and has spectacular views of the area. We did the self-guided tour and tasting for $20 p/p. The Castle is stunning and we enjoyed exploring it. Tomasso was our wine pourer and he was very friendly and helpful. We told... More

Even the kids liked visiting this winery. Very family friendly. We were only there about 45 minutes since we didn't take the guided tour. The wines we tasted were very good! My favorite was Fantasia desert wine. Thankfully, they do not sell their wines in stores, or I would be a wino. The kids were given grape juice that was... More

We did not do the tour. Tasting pourers were inexperienced and couldn't answer questions. Wines were not very good. Gift shop was VERY disappointing. I have a tuscan decorated home and nothing unusual to buy. Prices were very expensive for what they sold. Skip it! Not going back.

We only had a few opportunities to tour wineries in Napa. Went to Castello di Amorosa even though some told us that it was "commercialized." That's absolutely wrong!!! We did the vineyard tour which lasted about 2 hours. Walked through the property and learned a lot about the wine. We had a smaller group so the tour guide actually took... More

Went to the castle around 10 in the morning on a nice sunny day and had a great experience. The castle is amazing to tour. We had Rachel as a guide and had a super time. The castle tour is not over challenging, but it can be a little cool in the lower levels since they are in caves. The... More

Ok this was the best vineyard we visited. The wine was the best I found in the whole area! It had the best atmosphere and the service was amazing! To the French guy, Thibeau, you were absolutely the icing on the whole cake! He made our experience and had such a friendly and fun personality. We bought a lot of... More

There are few times you will receive service that not only enhances your visit, but makes the entire visit worthwhile. Allen is a representative of someone who goes above and beyond. His attentive pours and genuine listening ear, embodies what a person is looking for in a wine tasting. On top of the fantastic service, the grounds are top notch.... More

My boyfriend and I took our mothers here for Mother's Day. It was a beautiful day which compliments the amazing castle. The tour is definitely worthwhile as you get to see more, hear more about the construction and the wine and the detail that went into creating this place is unbelievable! Anything that wasn't directly imported from Europe (and consequently... More

Don't waste your money.. This place is absolute garbage. You have to pay for the tasting before seeing a wine list, so there's really no way to know which tasting you should chose, and the cashier up front was totally clueless. The guy doing the tasting knew nothing about wine.. He swirled our wines in our glasses for us, didn't... More

My husband and I were in Napa at the end of a month in California, Nevada and Arizona. Looking forward to relaxing and wine! Our first winery was Castella di Amorosa. Driving up the hill I couldn't believe my eyes! Up on the hill was a CASTLE! Built from old stone and brought from Europe in the fashion of the... More
