What a blast! The guide we had was awesome. We enjoy V. Sattui and had so much fun at the castle on recommendation from a friend. Do make reservations if you plan to visit. I have photos to post of the interior and grounds.

From our welcome and introduction to our guide, Jeff, this was a great experience. Jeff managed to keep us interested through the entire tour culminating in the wine tasting. I could not resist buying a few bottles to take with us on our grand Californian tour. They did not last long as we consumed 2 magnificent reds with our steaks... More

The rating does not reflect the wines. Our was wine pourer Julia was the best. She was truly concerned about our tasting experience and wouldn't sell us a wine if there was even a wrinkle in the label. Aside from the tasting it was very crowded, parking was difficult and lots of children running around even on a early Thursday... More

This winery is amazing. The architecture alone us worth the visit but wines are great as well. Rachel was an outstanding tour guide.

Starting with a picturesque drive up to the castle. Although very busy I was still able to take a self guided tour and see plenty. The wine tasting was so nice, really enjoyed the wine. However the wine is only available for purchase at the castle. I was given three pieces of chocolate that were to die for. The chocolate... More

It is a beautiful place for photos. We didn't take the tour, we thought it was a bit pricey, and had other places to visit. It was nice to say we've been there.

Lovely castle nestled within the winery. Didn't take a tour of the castle, but my boyfriend and I spent time walking around the grounds and admiring the vineyard. A picturesque place for photos. Just inside the castle, there was a small gift shop around the reception area where you could buy souvenirs and a women's bathroom (Men's bathroom apparently located... More

Wine was just as good as many others in the valley. The tour was ok. The tasting was fine. The castle was a bit small- the hype worked against it! The moat was swampy and stunk but the farm animals were a pure delight! Really, the farm animals were a highlight of the castle!

Our family (incl. 8 and 11 year old) love castles. The tour did not disappoint -- we got to go throughout the castle and down into the "dungeons" where they have shackles and torture implements on display. We'd love to come for the Halloween event where they turn the cellars into a haunted house! The Italian-inspired architecture is absolutely beautiful.... More

We came on a whim and left impressed with the extraordinary feeling being at an authentic Tuscan castle. It is definitely crowded here. We were unable to go on the guided tour because of how busy the castle was and our time schedule. While we considered our self-guided tour to be sufficient, it definitely did not allow us to visit...
