Castello di Amorosa announces a way to visit, which will be the stocking stuffer of a lifetime for the right wine-lover.

“We hope to have exceeded the wildest dreams of a lucky wine aficionado,” said President Georg Salzner. “We’ve meticulously assembled a dazzling package to exceed someone’s fine wine bucket list.”

This offer is suitable for the holiday season with all of the upcoming family dinners, celebrations, parties and gift-giving.

“It seems only appropriate that a winery in Napa Valley steps up to offer a no-holds-barred luxury experience as a holiday gift,” said Dario Sattui, founder and owner of Castello di Amorosa. “I spent 14 years creating this dream of a Tuscan castle in the middle of Napa Valley, and I know from hundreds of letters over the years that there are many people who can’t get enough of the experience of visiting — that was how we were inspired to put this together.”

The $20,000 (per couple) tour includes:
