Castello di Amorosa it's self was stunning as were the spectacular gardens and views surrounding it. My wife and I chose this winery through the feedback from tripadvisor and comments from locals. We had another winery in mind but glad we chose the Castle. We booked the premium tour a day in advance, pleased we did as it got very... More

As other reviews point out, the castle is a replica built with the original style and materials but up to modern codes. The tours are on the expensive side (30+) and children 5 to 20 must pay to tour even though they get juice and not the 10 wine tastings. Considering some places ask for just the tasting fee, I...

We aren't knowledgeable wine drinkers, so we picked this place because reviews said the staff wasn't judgmental and because it was near where we were staying. We liked our tasting with Tomasso, and even bought a bottle of wine. He didn't judge us when it was clear we had no idea what we were talking about, and helped steer me... More

Wow! What a complete and beautiful suprise.... Castello di Amorosa was definitely the highlight of the entire day. The castle itself is very real and quite beautiful. The architecture is amazing and is authentic. It offers breathtaking views and interesting little nooks and passageways. It's an excellent place to take pictures of the surrounding area with spectacular views of the... More

Castello di Amorosa was the second winery my husband and I visited today in Napa Valley. It is absolutely gorgeous. The castle, the grounds and the view are spectacular. We took the the 1 hour tour which came with a 45 minute tasting and we added the chocolates as well. I believe it came to $40 per person and was... More

The infra-structure of the castle is awesome and impressive. We arrived early on Sunday morning and avoided the crowds, but then the tour buses started to arrive. In the cellar, the wine was average and a bit more pricer than other wineries.

Visited last week and was expecting so so wine in a made to order castle. What impressed me was the wine tasting. Not only were the pours generous but the guy doing it knew his stuff. He was a large reason for the experience. His name is Vinchenzo Coppola( no relation to the director) careful though he is a charmer... More

We did go with some misgivings. Yes it is a replica castle, sure they give tours and taste wine. But it seemed to gimmicky but we did have a pretty open day so said what the heck let's be the nerdy tourist. At the end of the trip we found that we had a great time. The castle is on... More

Its our first winery in Napa and it didnt disappoint. The grand entrance from the gate, as you see the castle is just made in the movies if you imagine a romantic vineyard. View is excellent esp if you go on top of the tower. The tour was great and the tasting was great!!! Great service Camille was very accommodating.... More

Beautiful winery and castle, you would think you are in Italy. Take the family and the kids. The tour worth every penny.
