The Castello di Amorosa is built like an authentic castle, from real stone and hand wrought iron. Inspired to resemble a 13th century medieval Tuscan-style castle, the forty million dollars and thirteen years it took to build produced a remarkable place. Children are restricted to the early morning tours and must be over five years of age and are discounted for minors. Check their website for the schedule. The tour with tasting takes about two hours. While parents enjoy tasting Castello di Amorosa wines, the children can enjoy coloring and sipping grape juice. Kids misbehaving? Remind them that they do have a medieval torture chamber, hint, hint!
