As we drove up the property we were overwhelmed with the sight of the beautiful castle that we were driving to. As we headed in we were a little leery of the $25 per person tasting charge. We had 3 non-drinkers with us and were not sure if we wanted to try the wines. After talking to the hostess we... More

This was a great tour, our guide, Chris, was excellent. I recommend the reserve wine tasting. The reserve Pino Nior was amazing. My only complaint was that we couldn't drink during the tour.

My friend and I did the guided tour with the reserve wines and chocolates. Very reasonable. With the tour, you get to tour below the castle which is amazing and a maze! Don't get lost like we did taking too many photos! But they find you in a heartbeat so no worries there. Great Wine and a great guide paired... More

Authentically replicated italian castle, but hard to get over the crowds. Must have a reservation and then still it's crazy packed. Just drive by and take a few pictures outside.

Castello di Amorosa is something special! We went on a tour of the Castle, it was spectacular! Our guide was very informative, and knowledgable. Our tour took us four floors below the ground. It is truly something to see!

We paid the 'general admission' for a self-guided tour and included tasting for us and our 2 kids (grape juice tasting). If you have kids in the calistoga area, this is the way to do it! It was worth the $. You get to explore the different floors of the castle. For more $ you get a more extensive tour... More

Joe gave a great tour! Shared ten tastings afterwards. Hot day so it sure felt good down I the depths of the Castle where temps were in the 50's! No problem getting booked for tour, but had 45 min wait, so should have booked ahead.

We visited this grand castle this July. It was so beautiful and new but made to look old. We had a fun tour guide who took us around the grounds and into the cellars and gave us so much information about wine and the castle itself. We bought the tour and tasting package so after the walk we got to... More
