Castello di Amorosa is absolutely beautiful! Dario Sattui did a fabulous job when building the Castle, as he made sure that everything looked authentic, and each and every detail was done with attention. This a must see if you are visiting this area.

I chose to visit due to the winery being in a castle and was blown away at the wines and the knowledge of our tour guide Steve K. The story behind the castle and the art form in which the wines are crafted was impressive! Overall amazing experience and can't wait to return!

This was my second time doing the tour and wine tasting. Once again we had a great time. The tour was very interesting and even though I am not a big wine drinker, it was the perfect opportunity to try several different varieties. It was fun comparing the subtle differences and finding that I liked some I expected not to.... More

Everybody knows that the Castle is a beautiful and amazing place. It would itself a destination to visit even without the winery. I had hoped I would like some of the wines. I can now say that the tasting room was the highlight of the visit. The Castello di Amorosa wines were fantastic. I joined the wine club and will... More

It was very good and we were able to taste 8 different wines. I would highly suggest this tour to anyone going to Napa, just for... More

This is an attraction disguised as a winery. This is up there with the cheap and tacky. Don't be fooled and don't waste your money if you are here for the winery experience. If you need something to entertain on a theme park scale, go for it. we got refunds - which was the best quality from this location.

We booked the food pairing tour with Mary. Highly highly recommend this tour. Mary is such a sensation and great tour guide. The castle itself is amazing and so much to see and great views. Mary does a wonderful job explaining the history and then does an even better job at explain what wines pair with certain foods. The food... More

I hadn't heard of these wines, so thought this might be just touristy, but found it to be an informative and fun tour of a really special place. The wines are only available directly from the winery. We tasted 7 wines paired with 4 different cheeses. Great experience. Highly recommend a visit.
