The views were the best we seen during our three days in Napa Valley. We got to choose which wines to taste from a large offering so that was really great and we were able to walk about the castle.

First time visiting the castle and we weren't disappointed at all. We were first reluctant to take the tour (pricey at $40) but our tour guide, Ty, made it over the top fun! She was very knowledgeable about the property, seemed to really enjoy her job, and made the tour and visit to the castle the highlight of our trip... More

Picked this location for our over-the-top attraction to see in Napa. Given the extreme costs for wine tasting around here, this wasn't a bad value for your entertainment dollar. Lovely views, fun facility to wander, and decent if overpriced wines.

The Castello is the best wine experience in Napa. Although I didn't want to spend 25 dollars to do a self tour and tasting I am glad I did. It is a totally Authentic castle from the 12-13th century made the way they did back then. Coming up the driveway past the Italian cypress trees and olive trees makes you... More

This place is very unique and the history of how the castle was brought here brick by brick is amazing. We wanted to do the guided tour, but the wait without reservations was just too long. MAKE RESERVATIONS if you want the guided tour. Otherwise it is a self guided tour for $25 including 5 tastings. The wine they make... More

Conference dining location, began in the courtyard continuing to the Great Hall decorated with hand-painted Italian frescoes, and an Umbrian fireplace which could host a Medieval banquet...the Great Hall is a most prestigious and royal room reminding me of the Bracebridge Dinner at Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite, without the musical performance.

For $40 per person my 22yr old daughter and I toured Castello di Amorosa - this unbelievable castle replica. This was our absolute favorite winery and tour in Napa. The owner went to the extreme to ensure that this castle was as authentic as possible using brick that was over 400 yrs old and including beautiful art and paintings and... More

Must at least do a reserved tour and tasting. Guides are excellent, very informative and quite entertaining. Best would be to reserve an excellent food and wine paring event. The wines will be bringing you back for more. Mornings are not as crowded and be sure to check out the extensive shopping and of course the dungeon - it's to... More
