Have been to the Castle about 10x and for 3 of their extravagant events and the biggest joy I find is sharing its splendid grandeur with someone for the first time and seeing their awe and excitement.

Natalia was an amazing guide, she was fun, energetic, and very knowledgeable. We had some in the tour asking a lot of questions and she kept a positive attitude the entire time. I actually learned a lot about castles and wine making. Not to mention the wine is spectacular. We will be back very soon.

Stunningly Beautiful Castle beyond that…
Oct 2021
The Castle is one of the most beautiful structures we have seen, authentic in every detail.
The tastings were less than desirable.
Wine was served quickly and we were informed that one of our wines was 100% Cabernet grapes but the literature we were given on the way in gave a different description.
We were told “you will be taken care of if you take care of me”. Very cheesy!
Also somewhat pressured to make a wine purchase, made us fell like we were on a used car lot…
The wines were ok.

Castello Di Amorosa was definitely a highlight on our trip. The castle is beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the castle and it's tunnels as well as the wine tasting. Our Guide was excellent. The Wine was some of the best we tasted during our Napa Weekend. (Together we bought 12 bottles!!!) Castle De Amorosa is a must for anyone visiting the Calistoga, Ca area

Still my favorite
Oct 2021
We have been to this winery 5 years ago and went back this time on our Napa trip (the only repeat) due to liking it so much! I will mention this time is different in that you need reservations.

You may get reservations online but we kept encountering "system errors" with 2 different computers. We then called and were on hold for 15 minutes before being connected to someone, who did state they also heard a few others had the same issue (not sure what the problem was).

We did the standard tasting and most are occurring outside for seated tastings. You are offered warm blankets if need be, thought that was interesting! Kind of like last time, I do think there is more an element of 'sales pitch' here rather than pure love of the wine, but having said that, it is Always (always) fun, light hearted, jovial!! We had a server who did speak with an accent that was sometimes hard to understand, but added to the experience.

What I love about this place is there are GREAT wines at cheap (for Napa) prices and there are GREAT wines that are mid- range, and GREAT expensive ( $100 +) wines. I truly do appreciate the fact that the cheaper ones, are good ones. We have bought all price ranges over time and have never been disappointed. A secondary thing is the architecture is truly one of a kind, and you may wander around as you wish or do a tour.

Still my favorite place to go!

It is really amazing and fantastic wine tasting experience. I had a great time with friends in the castle. Zinfandel is my favorite, it empresses me pretty much. Take many wonderful photos and spend a great time at Napa❤️
