The estate vineyards of Villa Amorosa which surround the Castello are located in the foothills 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, these nearly 30 acres of hillside vines are planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sangiovese, Primitivo, Malbec, and Petit Verdot.
Covering 5,000 rocky acres in the Mayacamas Mountain Range on the northeast side of Napa Valley, this region has just over 500 acres under vine. Our vineyards possess unique, porous volcanic soils. With vineyards high above the fog and facing west, Castello di Amorosa’s wine grapes receive an extended exposure to the sun assuring their full ripeness at harvest. Cabernet Sauvignons of this AVA are described as rich and powerful with chewy textures and diamond-hard tannins.
