Authentic Italian Medieval Delight in Napa Valley: Castello di Amorosa

Large arrow left

Castello di Amorosa ia an architectural adventure for the whole family right in the middle of Napa Valley. Based on fourth generation winemaker Dario Sattui’s passion for medieval history, he spent 14 years constructing the replica of a 13th-century stone castle on 171-acres and every piece of it is authentic.

You can take a tour of the property which includes the main hall with huge murals and a 500-year old fireplace. The room is used for large events as well as for films, which won’t surprise you when you see how beautiful it is.

There is also a chapel and courtyard as well as underground where there are tons and tons of tunnels, plenty of spots to discover as there are 107 rooms on eight floors!
