Castello di Amorosa produces primarily Italian style wines while reflecting California's unique climate, soil and growing conditions. All our red grapes are grown in the Napa Valley around the Castle. White grapes are grown in the Carneros district of the Napa Valley or in the Anderson Valley, as both of these cool areas are ideal for white wine grapes. Some grapes are also purchased from select growers.
Wine Making Philosophy
Brooks Painter, a veteran winemaker of more than 30 years, presides over all winemaking production. His goal is to make delicious, classically structured, intensely flavored, well-balanced, elegant wines which showcase the "Terroir" of each unique vineyard site.
The Napa Valley has been producing fine and memorable wines for more than a century. Indeed, the words "Napa Valley" have become synonymous with great California wine to consumers all over the world. Yet many wine lovers have not discovered the full expressive range of Napa Valley wine, as magnificence takes many subtle forms.
Castello di Amorosa vineyards are in the heart of the Diamond Mountain District, a nested American Viticultural Area (AVA) within the Napa Valley. Located east of highway 29 and just 3 miles south of the city of Calistoga, our 30 acres of vineyards surrounding the Castello are planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sangiovese and Primitivo.
