Lot #10: Tour the Castle, Taste the Wine, & Treasure this Vertical


Castello di Amorosa, the dream of its owner, Dario Sattui, is an authentically reproduced 13th century Tuscan castle and winery located in the heart of Napa Valley.

You and 5 guests will embark on a guided tour exploring the grounds of the 136,000-square-foot structure. The Castello was built using authentic medieval architecture, and Sattui missed no detail; if you’d find it in a real castle, you’ll find its reproduction here.

Tour concludes in the private tasting room, where you'll sample the wide array of award-winning wines offered at the Castello, all crafted in the Italian style and available only at the winery.

You'll also receive a vertical of Il Barone (2011–2016) in a special wooden collection box with a message from the owner engraved inside. Il Barone is a reserve Cabernet Sauvignon with long-term aging potential and sourced from top Napa vineyards. These wines are loved by critics and they have won four double-gold, one gold, and one silver awards in the SF Chronicle Wine Competition. The 2014 Il Barone is particularly special, for it is an extremely rare wine due to losses in the Glass Fire of 2020. They don’t even sell it anymore!

Lot #10: Castello di Amorosa: Tour the Castle, Taste the Wine, and Treasure this Vertical

Castello di Amorosa, the dream of its owner, Dario Sattui, is an authentically reproduced 13th century Tuscan castle and winery located in the heart of the gorgeous Napa Valley.

You and 5 guests will embark on a guided tour exploring the extensive grounds of the 136,000-square-foot structure, ranging from sweeping vineyard vistas atop the truncated tower to the roughly 900 feet of caves that wind underneath the adjacent hillsides. The Castello was built using authentic medieval architecture, and Sattui missed no detail; if you’d find it in a real castle, you’ll find its reproduction here. It has a moat, a drawbridge, defensive towers, an interior courtyard, a torture chamber, a chapel, a knights' chamber, and a great hall.

The tour concludes in the private tasting room, where guests can sample from the wide array of award-winning wines offered at the Castello, all crafted in the Italian style and available only at the winery.

In addition to the wonderful tour and tasting, you will also receive a vertical of Il Barone (2011–2016) in a special wooden collection box with a message from the owner engraved inside.

Il Barone is a reserve Cabernet Sauvignon with excellent long-term aging potential and sourced from top vineyards throughout Napa Valley. These wines are loved by critics and, from the wines in this vertical alone, they have won four double-gold, one gold, and one silver awards in the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. In addition, the 2014 Il Barone is particularly special, for it is an extremely rare wine due to losses in the Glass Fire of 2020. They don’t even sell it in the tasting room anymore!

You will love experiencing this hillside Tuscan castello overlooking the Napa Valley, and the tasting will leave you absolutely stunned. 

In addition, you’ll have plenty of Il Barone to share, but after your first sip you’ll want to save it all for yourself!
