I get asked quite often about which wineries to visit here in the Napa Valley. Today, I am going to feature Castello di Amorosa which I often hear is the most visited winery in the Napa Valley. I wasn't able to find any proof of this for many wineries don't advertise the number of visitors they get each year, but I have heard it to be so by many who work here in the various wine tasting rooms I have visited lately.
This undertaking to build an authentic castle here in the Napa Valley was a quest of Dario Sattui, owner of very popular Sattui Winery on White Lane about a mile south of downtown St Helena. It took 15 years to construct this 13th century Castle of Love, this is the translation of the name, and the 121,000 square foot complex boasts a drawbridge, secret passage, torture chamber has an authentic 300-year-old iron maiden plus 121 rooms.
Please visit this special place when here in the Napa Valley and tell them Curtis sent you.
If I can help you find the perfect Napa Valley property, please email me
