Who wouldn't want to taste wine in a real castle. Tasting is deep inside the castle, nice and cool break from outside The wines were/ are fantastic. I just ordered another case. It's not Hearst Castle, but Hearst Castle does not offer wine either. We will be back in 2017.

We decided to do the guided castle tour which was very neat and gave extra facts about different parts of the castle - plus you get the wine tasting at the end! We did the normal tasting but you had the option to upgrade if you wanted to try the reserves. There was also an upgrade for chocolate during the... More

This is my first "5 Star" review. Perhaps it was the beautiful weather when we visited, perhaps it was the excellent wine, perhaps it was the Disney-like quality of the Castle, perhaps it was the excellent tour guide/hostess...you get the picture...it was an overall excellent experience. Yes, there was a shameless pitch to buy their wines or join a wine... More

This is a castle built by an eccentric who wanted a castle in the US that was built like the old castles in Europe. They did an amazing job. The castle feels very authentic, if they had told me it was old, I probably would've believed them (not an expert in castles, obviously). There is a grand dining/ballroom, a dungeon,... More

Did the $40 tour and tasting. The guide was upbeat and told us about the castle and the winemaking process. The wines were very good, and they have a large variety to select from.

We came to the V. Sattui Winery for the Harvest Ball and heard about the Castello di Amorosa. We decided to visit and were so glad we did. The castle was beautiful the little we saw as we were too late for the tour of the castle. However, we did do a wine tasting. We met Vincenzo Coppola who was... More

My husband and I aren't really wine drinkers, but wanted to experience Napa anyway. Did the tour and tasting and so glad we did! Our tour guide Kimberly was very friendly and informative. Definitely worth spending a little more for the tour because you don't get to see the underground caves with the barrels of wine or the torture chamber.... More

The Castle was hot, crowded and noisy. I could imagine that it would be an interesting place to visit and learn about on a slow day with a small group. We were put into a large group to tour the castle. It has a very Disneyesque feel because everything is about you purchasing something, wine or other merchandise. You exit... More

Going here was like going to Italy. We enjoyed the walking around the grounds and touring the castle. We are non-drinkers and they do have a sparkling grape juice to sample. It is well worth the trip.
