Probably the best wine tour in the area. Touring through the replica Medieval castle is a superb visual experience. The wine is a great complement to your palate.

My husband and I received a wine tasting pass that included the Castello di Amorosa it had a 50$ value so they credited us $50 and added a tour for 2 for $30. Tomasso was our Tuscan born,young, tour guide. His knowledge of the amazing property and of wine and wine making was impressive. He referred to our tourist group... More

First time in Napa and we aren't huge wine people saw I thought it would be fun to experience a castle! Really cool tour. I mean who doesn't want to see a torture room and dungeon. The castle was built in the 90s but with authentic materials. Cool story behind the castle and the materials used to build it. Our... More

The structure is very impressive. Attention was paid to the most minute details. This is a great place to enjoy a marvelous contemporary take on "medieval" architecture. However, sadly the wine is not my favorite, but it is definitely worth visiting.

It looks like a medieval Italian castle was dropped in the middle of Napa! That was the reaction upon seeing it for the first time. We've toured the castello before but, this time, we came for a concert. Wine and appetizers were being served at the large room beside the concert venue. Its walls were covered with medieval-style paintings. It... More

While the castle and surrounding vineyard are beautiful, they lose their charm as soon as you walk in. Be prepared to deal with crowds, bad parking and long waits just to walk into this castle. The wine tasting was ok, not a great value at 5 pours for $25. In addition, we were shocked at how rude and impatient the... More

We came here and were blown away by this winery. A fully built Italian castle with moat that overlooks the Napa Valley hills. The wine tasting tour is excellent and the featured wines in the wine tasting - which can only purchased at the winery - were delicious. Not a loser in the ten we tasted. Staff was exceptional and...

Very nice vineyard in Napa Valley. Our host made a nice visit of the castle. Many explantations about the way it was built. Very entertaining. For a reasonable price you can visit the castle and taste 5 different kind of wine. My wife enjoyed it too.
