Perhaps because of the long weekend, there were just too many people. The whole place was disorganised as they were not prepared for handling large crowds. Wine tasting experience was poor: we had to stand for half hour for our place at the table. After that the service was slow as the lady was serving three groups at the same... More

Had a great time exploring the grounds and castle of this winery, concluding with an excellent tasting conducted by Vincenzo. He was very friendly and knowledgeable and really enhanced our visit. Will definitely return on my next visit to Napa

This is a must-do experience if you are in the Napa Valley. My wife and I did the wine and cheese tour and had a great experience. Maria, our guide, was friendly and knowledgeable. She led us through the various levels of the castle with a nice guided tour, did a barrel tasting, and then the wine and cheese. Beautiful... More

Our guided tour of castle was excellent. Chris, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable about wine facts and the history of the castle. We toured the wine cellars, the dungeon and torture room, as well as all the other various rooms. We also saw the production facilities. After the tour was wine tasting with 5 samples of the different types... More

Good tour of the castle, wine cellars and very entertaining guide Damien. Would have liked to learn more about the actual wine making process though.

We had one day to spend in the area and chose to stop here on the advice of another winery. We purchased the $20/person general admission ticket and enjoyed the pretty castle, walked around its beautiful grounds, and tasted some nice wine. The overall atmosphere was inviting, and we appreciated the owner's attention to detail when he built (and continues... More
