Depsite being a complete tourist trap, Castello di Amarosa was a nice place to visit. They wine was just OK, although it seemed that they dont actually make their own wine anyways. But, walking around the castle for an hour or so provided a nice break.

Recently visited the Castello di Amorosa while on a business trip to Berkeley. Lovely grounds, people, and wine. Toured the castle and enjoyed the wine tasting. The staff was friendly and engaging! Will return when in the area for vacation and able to spend more time touring the Napa area and the castle, of course!

When you are on the highway you will not see the Castle. You need to know where to go to get there. Villa Amorosa-4045 St. Helena, 94515. This can be a highlight of your trip in Napa. There are tours with guides which also includes wine tasting after you see 6 floors of the Castle or you can go on... More

The castle was beautiful! The only thing that we did not like was the people that works there, they are not very friendly (cashiers/receptionist/greeter by the front, where you pay for your tour) No smiles, no hi's... Looks like they hate their job... except for our tour guide, Sean! He's very good and nice. $35/person for a guided tour(2 hours),... More

A must visit if you are in the Calistoga area.Not only is the story of the castle fascinating but the variety of wines and quality is excellent. Be sure and take the tour of the underground cave, and to add the wine and chocolate paring to your tasting

The winery is an actual castle and was built using authentic material and building styles. A tour is a must to get the history and our tour guide Anthony was extremely informative and friendly. One of the better people I have met on tours. What is any castle without torture room, dungeon, draw bridge and moat, this place has it... More

It was my daughter's birthday and we stopped in on a whim and what a great memory. It's an actual castle and was built using authentic material and building styles.

My husband surprised me with a trip to this amazing castle. We live nearby and I didn't even know about it. It was a beautiful day and the castle grounds and surrounding vineyards were amazing. They keep some animals like a large pig, some goats and even a peacock or two. The tour was really fun and informative. The tasting... More

What a fun stop this was on a day of touring the countryside. We had an amazing wine tasting and then proceeded to the shopping area. The "castle" type souvenirs we bought were very cool.. Crown napkin rings and candle holders. Beautiful soaps and candles. The views were superb from the top of the castle too. It was the last... More
