Beautiful winery to visit. We did a tasting with chocolate pairing. The selection tasted great and we ended up having some of it shipped back home. I felt a little bit like the place was a little to commercialized though, a bit like a Disney for grown-ups. It was also disappointing that we couldn't just buy a bottle to drink there on the grounds.

This was actually a gorgeous castle; huge with all sorts of nooks and crannies. We couldn't figure out why our tour/tasting time was an odd number but it turns out they send off tours every two minutes. That was a concern when we arrived but no worries; they carried it off perfectly. The place was very crowded but they figured out how to route everyone so you never felt mobbed. Bruno was our guide; he was just right. Professional, efficient, fun, fact filled and really worked with us to make the tasting memorable. Kudos to Bruno! The barrel tasting was unusual but quite cool. The charcuterie was the best we had out of all the wineries we visited and included wonderful cheeses and even figs. This was only the 2nd winery that offered us grapes to taste which is a great idea if it can be done. All in all a great experience!!!!

Unique/great for picture taking, easy to find, and smoothly run. Thought my tour group was too big and tour done too quickly. While my host was pleasant, I thought there was too much selling. I did not think much of the wines, but the wines may work for others depending upon their tastes.

Our group of nine purchased the premium wine-tasting package. We arrived a little early and had a chance to explore a bit of the castle before our tour. Our guide was enthusiastic and well-rehearsed…a little too well-rehearsed. And, for the money, we’d expected a more intimate, more personalized environment for the wine-tasting. Instead, we were brought into a large room with a number of other parties. Just not the experience we’d hoped for.

I was with the family last Sunday for the castle. And it is the wine tasting that was a very relaxing and comfortable thing, and Mr. Giani with his charisma made us feel welcome, Thanks Giani.

It is true medieval experience. High quality wine, amazing panoramic views from Truncated Tower. Our trip will be cherished with memories full of love. Plan ahead, come earlier, schedule your wine paring tour. We took everything for our family picnic and had amazing time together. Make sure to prepare activities for younger children. This winery is oriented for adults, but their grape juice become one of the favorite treats for all our children.

We went to the Castello di Amorosa winery yesterday. It was sunny and beautiful. Sid was our sommelier and taught us about wine tasting. It was crowded but everything was well organized. We then bought three bottles from the winery. When we got home and took them out from the trunk, the bottom of the paper bag fell out. All three bottles were shattered. It ruined an otherwise enjoyable day. I am not sure why Castello di Amorosa uses poor quality paper bags for the wines. It was not even double bagged. All other winery we visited use thick cardboard boxes. Castello di Amorosa's wine is fine but the sad ending just leaves a bad taste in the mouth.

The Castle of Love.. built similar to medieval castles in Italy. Everything in Napa is indeed expensive. The wine tasting includes 5 wines. Their 100 percent grape juice that was given to my toddler was amazing. We had accidentally paid for an extra ticket, but they didn’t give extra wine or refund on that. Biggest drawback was that the cheese platter is a prepackaged thing which has pork on the side.. just no option for vegetarians. And there is no other food, which they said is similar to all vineyards. Overall one time. The castle itself and its towers is ok to explore. As wines I tried Dolcino, Cabernet Sauvignon, La Castelana, Sympatica, La Fantasia. La Fantasia was my favorite.
