The castle is unique. It is a fun place to visit, but for the entire tour I felt like someone that had accepted a "free vacation" at a time share. The wines were OK, but seriously over priced. the pressure to join their club was overwhelming. There was no way I was going to join their wine club at any... More

I didn't think I would be impressed but I was! An authentic Italian castle built with great attention to detail. Beautiful well-maintained grounds with various livestock roaming freely. Even the restrooms kept with the theme and had paintings on the stall doors and dragon faucets. We didn't take the tour and just saw the place on our own, although we... More

We are so happy that a couple in our hotel told us about the Castle on our first trip to Napa. We only did the tasting the first time but just went back to do the tour. If you can only go on one tour don't miss this one. It's something out of a fairy tale,one of the most beautiful... More

Lots of fun with a great gift store. There are summer concerts. In the summer, the temperature is high. Great wines to taste. Sign up for the tour. You think you are in Italy. The grounds are magnificent.

As my 6 year old told me when we entered the castle: "This place is Awesome". It's like something out of a young child's dream. The castle has an authentic look and feel to it. They have gone to great lengths to make the winery kid friendly. While parents taste wine, they have provided a table for kids to sit... More

This place is a must see and please take the tour. It was the best wine tour we did on our Napa trip. And why you ask. Because it was the most educational, the most tastings, amazing wine especially the sweet wine but all the wines. Gift shop was great, host was great and of course the atmosphere was incrediable.

This is my least favorite of all wineries I have visited in the Napa valley. It is the epitome of a tourist trap, with swarms of groups and rather cheesy signage. Did not go on the tour, so cannot speak to that. The wine was very unremarkable, though the tasting was relatively affordable. The tasting room is also very crowded.... More

This is my favorite place to visit in Napa/Calistoga. Ive been coming here since they opened. I feel like im in Tuscany and i love the tour. I think we have toured the castle like 4 or 5xs and is well worth it because it includes barrel tastings and a private room. This time around i was able to take... More

Went there with a Calistoga Winter Wine Pass on Saturday morning. Never been before. Went early so no problem with crowds. Thought the wine we tasted for the $20 base tasting was great. So great we bought a case. Liked almost everything we tasted and the pourer was fun!. Didn't go on tour. Was our favorite place of the 10+... More
