First, I would like to say I use to be their wine club member and we came here few times with wonderful memories. I am not sure if is always been like this but I feel they need to change the way they do tasting. This winery has become an amusement park where you purchase entrance tickets of different type...

The Castle is huge and the wine tasting was wonderful - I ended up taking 12 bottles home of La Fantasia. I highly recommend coming by this spot to do some wine tasting when you're in the area - it's definitely a good spot to stop by.

I probably shouldn't be reviewing this, but if you are a little sensitive to touristy things, you might not enjoy this as much as others. We came here during the recent large storm when flooding rains closed a couple other tasting rooms we had planned. The castle is interesting, I'll certainly admit that!

We visited several wineries in Napa/Calistoga/Geyersville and this was by far our favorite. Loved the in depth tour, our guide Jefferson was wonderful and the property is unbelievable. The "behind the scenes" perspective was really cool. Since there were 3 in our party we had the opportunity to taste 15 different wines. We ended up ordering several bottles. The animals... More

Our tour guide was Chris. He was well versed, funny and a genuinely nice guy. The thought, passion and finances sunk into this place are amazing. I would like to meet the owner just to shake his hand and thank him for his contributions to the arts, community and humanity in general. Can't wait to return!

This place has a separate family tasting room which was quite nice for the 3 year old with us. The adults tasted while she sat and colored at the nearby table. Didn't really learn much about the wine as they have interns pouring it, but overall the castle is nicely replicated and the wine they did have available was good.

We found everyone to be gracious, pleasant, and a special bonus is the GREAT wines. I love the beautiful reds and the Barolo was amazing. I believe that many get out... More
