Castello di Amorosa, Calistoga

4.1
Sample fine wines and tour a 13th-century Tuscan-style castle at Castello di Amorosa. With a general admission, you explore the first two levels of the castle. Spend extra for the guided tour if you prefer to see more of the grand building. Discover the moat, chapel, drawbridge, and torture chamber, home to a 300-year-old iron maiden torture device. The great hall's frescoes took two Italian artists a year and a half to complete. Climb up one of the defensive towers to take in far-reaching views of the countryside. Once you have finished exploring, descend into tasting rooms to sample wines from the castle's vineyard. To visit Castello di Amorosa on your trip to Calistoga, use our Calistoga trip site.

  • Beutiful place for the family visiting the wine country... excellent collection of wines. Castle is very nice and interesting. Wine tasting was awesome here. Gift shops are full of interesting souvenirs. Kids love it. It is located in a slope and thus it has a excellent view of the mountains in the front.
  • Amazing winery Castle, the views are truly one of a kind in the area. A lot to see, take pictures and walk with family and friends. The wine tasting room is like a true man cave, big and full of goodness, and the service was unique. They took the time to explain the process and how we can become members. As a member we can be part of the special events/parties which it sounds fun. The wine was good, specially the Fantacy wine. Can’t wait to get back again.
  • Just visited the castle for the 2nd time. It is truly the most amazing experience! The architecture and attention to detail is exquisite! Their wines are truly spectacular! I have done the wine and chocolate pairing which was fantastic, but we just did the Food and Wine Pairing with Mary and OH MY WORD!! It was one of the best experiences I have ever had! Mary is darling, she is full of love, knowledge and hospitality! Her food is absolutely incredible, the wine pairings were perfect. The whole experience was remarkable! Worth every dollar! Thanks Mary :)
  • Beautiful Castle Winery! Plenty of different souvenirs and great wine tasting venue. The staff were super super fun and friendly. I asked to pair my wine with chocolate and they honored my request. Although the place was beautiful and the wine was great, I thought the price for the tasting was a bit pricey! However, buying by the bottle was not priced bad at all. I wish I had more time to hang out and check out the castle. So when you come visit, make sure you have at least 3 hours reserved.
  • Absolutely wonderful place to checkout. If you love history, architecture, and of course wine, you will fall in love with this beautiful castle. I highly recommend taking the tour as it is extremely informative and eye opening. Plus the tour guide, Marianne really made the tour so much more special. You can feel the gusty coursing off the walls. I don’t suggest wearing heels ladies. The walkways are all stone and it will get painful quickly. There’s even a little far with chickens, emus, goats, and others when you are leaving. I would give it more stars if I could.
