After watching videos, and reading other Trip Advisors review, I was excited about visiting "The Castle." My review starts when I made our food and wine pairing reservations. I emailed them to ask about great breakfast spots and Mary promptly replied with great recommendations (Thanks Mary) When we arrived, I realized that Mary would also be our hostess and master...

We enjoyed this winery. We particularly liked their sweet wines. Our daughter enjoyed getting grape juice and petting the resident cat. We wished they had some seating in the tasting room. The self tour really wasn't much, but you should at stop and watch the video. A lot of people took the guided tour.

My husband loves the Game of Thrones thing and this did it for him. The castle is amazing the quality of the building is excellent. Not cheezy at all, very authentic. Did a tasting and upgraded to the "reserve tasting" at $45 per person. Not really worth it to me. My husband's pours were all greater than mine. For $45... More

This was such a beautiful winery to visit. Such care and precision went into creation of the castle. The wine tasting was $20 for entrance and for 5 delicious wines, and the staff was very friendly and knowledgable. They also don't sell their wine in any stores, so it makes buying a bottle extra special. Would definitely recommend.

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

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.
