Castello di Amorosa Tours

Fashioned after a 13th-century Tuscan castle, Castello di Amorosa looks like it belongs on an Italian postcard instead of in the heart of California wine country. The vineyard produces several varieties of red and white wines, but many visitors are drawn by the eight-level structure itself, which includes five defensive towers, a drawbridge, and a moat.

The Basics
Though opened in 2007, the castle includes many historical touches. The Great Hall houses a 500-year-old fireplace, and all the ironwork, antique bricks, and tiles were handmade in Italy and other parts of Europe. Like a real medieval castle, the building includes a watch tower, torture chamber, secret passageways, and a church. 

The Napa Valley Wine Trolley and the Napa Valley Wine Train both stop at Castello di Amorosa. Private and small-group Napa Valley wine tours often stop at the castle for a tasting (wine tasting fees are not always included), as well as other Napa wineries like V. Sattui Winery and Robert Mondavi. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The castle and winery is a must-see for wine lovers and architecture buffs.
  • Strollers, selfie sticks, and drones are not allowed on the property.
  • Winery tours and tastings often sell out on weekends and holidays, so it’s a good idea to book ahead.
  • Children are welcome at the winery, and the entrance fee for minors includes a cup of grape juice and access to a coloring table in the Knight’s Hall tasting room.
  • Wear comfortable shoes and expect to walk or stand for about an hour during the tour.
  • The winery is fully ADA compliant, with an elevator to all levels on the wine tour.

How to Get There
The winery is located off Highway CA-29 in the northern area of Napa Valley between Calistoga and St. Helena. Get there by private car, or by booking a guided tour, the Napa Valley Wine Trolley, or the Napa Valley Wine Train. 

When to Get There
Castello di Amorosa is open seven days a week with extended hours on weekends. The winery can become extremely busy on weekends and holidays, particularly in the afternoon, so plan to visit on a weekday or before lunch on a weekend.

Complimentary Corkage
Castello di Amorosa produces chardonnay, merlot, cabernet sauvignon, sangiovese, and gewürztraminer, among other varietals. If you enjoy one of the wines you taste there and have dinner plans in the valley, be sure to pick up a bottle or two. The winery has partnered with select restaurants in Napa Valley—the region has more Michelin-star restaurants per capita than any wine region on earth—to offer free corkage on Castello di Amorosa wines.
