Castello di Amorosa, Calistoga

4.1
#1 of 914 in Wineries in California
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 .

  • My favorite winery ever!!! The most beautiful castle and place. Wine is great. We had tour around all castle and tasting tour. I found the best vine in my life, after couple month I even ordered it online with shipping to other part of country. I’m addicted now to La Fantasia. I recommend to everyone to visit this place and I promise that you will never forget. Only one thing is bad that unfortunately you can’t buy this wine nowhere except winery or online
  • This place is a lot of fun. The wines are delicious, the full tour is great, not an ounce of stuffiness and if you do know a bit about wine the guides are very knowledgeable. Generous with the pours and additional tastings. The chocolate with the last flight was awesome. Also try the grape juice!
