Bit of a tourist trap

The wine isn't that good and they make you pay for a tour of the castle. But it's a fake castle!!! So why do you need a tour? Oh well.

The castle grounds were fun to explore. Hard to believe someone had the vision to design such a place in the middle of the valley. Was definitely a tourist atmosphere, but great for a family. The wines we tasted were ok, certainly not those I would consider memorable, however, Benjamin at the tasting bar, was full of information and very... More

Take a tour and visit this building at the top of the hills of Napa, everywhere you will watch, you will see old stuff everywhere.

The only reason they got a 4 is because the tour didn't start on time. It was one of the best things we did on our wine country trip. Thomas, our tour guide and who provided the tasting, was very knowledgeable, friendly, and helped give suggestions for pairings with various wines we tasted. It is a unique property and an... More

Interesting place to visit, like stepping into Siena, Italy. Castle built in various styles as Vattui brought back several ideas that were incorporated into this "castle". Tour price was $40/per person included the wine tasting at the end. You can just do the tasting but do not get into the interesting parts of the castle. It comes with an armory,... More

If you go do it for the castle itself and the view. The reserve wines were much better than the standard wines but still not what I expect from Napa. The guys behind the counter are nice but a bit pushy. I prefer a more relaxed wine tasting experience.

My husband and I absolutely loved our experience at Castello di Amorosa. We took the guided tour to see the castle and was able to learn not only about the history of castles in general, but also, how the wine process works. Going through the tunnels and hearing about the wine making process was incredible and not an experience we... More

This castle is so authentic you would think you were back in time. The tour through the castle was great and the tasting rooms in the cellar were wonderful. There were numerous rooms so you can have privacy for your own group. The wines were delicious and a very generous tasting for the money.

I will not go through the description of the magnificent effort that Dario Sattui has put into this whole project. You can read about it elswhere. Thia is truly a "do not miss" if you find yourself in Napa Valley. If you've never been to Europe, it's well worth taking the tour and the whole nine yards (including one or... More
