As our bus climbed the steep driveway that splits the hillside vineyard, we were greeted by the magnificent castle that is the hallmark of this winery. The castle is quite impressive, and a tour of the inside leads you through ramparts, a great hall, a spacious courtyard, underground catacombs, a torture chamber, stone archways, and eventually a very large tasting...

My wife and I recently visited Castello di Amorosa. We were completely wowed with the views from every angle. You can see the love that went into creating this wonderful place as well as the love that goes into running it. From the winemakers to our tour guide Rachel, you can see that this is truly a magical place. Go... More

The castle and grounds were beautiful. We did not do a tour but decided to look in the gift shop. It was very dark in the gift shop bring its inside the castle. We bought a few different pasta sauces and I also bought a nice bracelet. I just arrived home from my napa vacation and started to unpack and... More

This winery is north of Napa, but it's the building that houses the operation that is the main attraction. Castello di Amorosa is a castle, a real castle! It's not a phony facade that looks like a castle. The tour brings you through a great room with an unfinished mural painted on the wall, down into tunnels and dimly lit... More

It was very packed when we were there on a Sunday afternoon, but it was great to walk around the grounds. The tasting was done in the basement and it's crowded but has a great ambiance. We loved it here!

We just set out from our hotel in Napa to find this winery/castle we heard people talking about. What a beautiful place! The castle grounds are magnificent---you feel as if you have traveled back in time while touring the grounds. Two types of tours are offered---the self-guided and guided tours. The guided tour offers the visitor to see more of... More

We recently visited this winery with 3 children. We chose this winery tour because it came highly recommended as being kid-friendly. The winery is essentially vineyards and a fairly authentic replica of a medieval castle. We all enjoyed our tour of the castle and learning about how they make wine here. The adults also really enjoyed the yummy wine tasting... More

The castello is beautiful and gives you nice photos. Unforunately, the service is REALLY bad. It seems not important to the service-men to talk and explaine you the characteristics of each tasted wine. Especially, if you pay for a tasting. In addition, once you have tasted a white-wine, u definetely don't use the same glas for a red-wine. Unfortunately, they... More

We didn't enter the castle, due to time constraints, therefore I have to give it 4 stars. However, the 1/2 hour we spent walking the grounds surrounding the castle made us wish we had more time. I am pretty sure the inside tour and wine tasting would justify a 5th star!
