Special Notes

Unique tour and tasting options, barrel tasting, wine club events, food and wine pairing tours


Castello di Amorosa, or “castle of love” in Italian, is an authentically styled 13th- century Tuscan castle winery overlooking 30 acres of estate vineyards. The Castello was built by Dario Sattui, a fourth-generation winemaker and owner of V. Sattui Winery, with 8,000 tons of hand- squared stones, over 14 years. Today it spans 136,000 square feet with its eight levels (four above ground and four below), magnificent ramparts, drawbridge, secret passageways and medieval towers. 

The vineyards surrounding the Castello produce Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Primitivo and Sangiovese grapes for the estate’s internationally acclaimed wine portfolio. The vineyards are certified Napa Green, a soil-to- bottle environmental stewardship program. 

The wine-making team focuses on balance and terroir expression. As a result, each of Castello di Amorosa’s wines — available only at the winery — is elegant, well-structured, and intensely flavorful, enabling the wines to pair beautifully with a diverse array of food. 

Castello di Amorosa offers a variety of guided tours — including a cheese and wine pairing tour and an antipasti and wine pairing tour — all of which are accompanied by barrel samples and a private tasting. While guests are invited to visit the Castello anytime for a tasting, guided tours are available only by appointment.
