We went here on the first stop of our Napa Valley Wine Trolley Tour. We had an awesome 2 hour private tour with our tour guide Joe who was not only very funny and kept us laughing the entire time but very knowledgeable about the history of the castle and various wines. We bought 3 bottles of wine and enjoyed... More

And, I am a bit poorer now that we have had a case of an amazing wine delivered. The tour was superb, the tasting even better. The setting, second to none, the cost was a bit, but worth every penny, $35 per person, but the tasting experience was very, very generous. This is a must do on any trip to... More

This is a beautiful winery with great wines. If you didn't know it, you would think you were in one of the wine regions of Italy. The building and thought put into all the details is impeccable. Back in the mid 80's, V. Sattui winery was one of our favorite wineries to visit and enjoy a picnic lunch on their... More

The problem with spending an estimated $40 million on a winery/castle of this sort is that you have to charge $15 more per bottle than your competitors do for the same caliber of wine in a faint attempt to recover your costs. And that's what they do. And no nice outside seating, unless we missed it. But you will still... More

This castle was built with detail in mind. We did the basic tour and loved looking through the rooms, viewing the video, walking the grounds, checking out the animals and participating in the wine tasting. It's in a beautiful location with an incredible view of the valley. Make sure you go into Calistoga afterwards and eat at one of the... More

The castle is beautiful, something out of medevil times! The grounds were beautiful also. Cool farm animals. The tasting room was interesting but had too many flies! But great wine! The gift shop had some cool items. It definitely is a different experience from the other wineries

I am a member of several wineries, not only in Napa but also Lodi and Calistoga but the service at the castello di Amorosa is always fantastic. After 3 visits to the winery and 2 wine tastings done by Vincenzo, my friends and I keep coming back! you can't beat the magnificent experience of being served delicious wine by a... More

What an unbelievably gorgeous property! Every detail inside and out was spectacular. The property stands alone as reason to visit. Our tour guide was a tad lacking in fun and character, he was a little dry, but we didn't care, we were too consumed with our beautiful surroundings, as we were touring the equal of a European castle right in...

Our first visit to California, and it was everything I thought it would be....even with high expectations! And perhaps, this is why I feel the need to write this review....the only sour point of our visit was the wine tasting experience at Castello di Amorosa.....and why? The winery was absolutely beautiful and obviously no expense was spared to build it... More
