Castello di Amorosa

Rising above the hills in the Napa Valley is Castello di Amorosa, which translates to the “castle of love” in Italian.  Castello di Amorosa is an authentically-styled, thirteenth century Tuscan castle winery replete with high walls, five defensive towers, and over 30 acres of estate vineyards.  It was built over a 14-year period by Dario Sattui, a fourth generation winemaker and owner of V. Sattui Winery in St. Helena, California.
