While the idea of a castle in Calistoga may be appealing to some, having been to real castles deters a bit from the novelty of this winery. I suppose it would be a good place to tour with the family, especially with the farm animal section, but as a wine taster, it's a horrible place to go. The tasting rooms... More

The castle is breathe taking and they built it to look and feel like an old, authentic Tuscan castle! Job well down! The grounds are beautiful, the staff are warm and welcoming and the wine is incredible! They do not mass produce and market their wines. You must be a wine club member to get them. To be a member...

Toured the castle today and found it most informative and loved the attention to detail. Sam was our guide and provided an interesting and comfortable tour ensuring that all of the guests on our tour were at ease. The wine tasting was good and loved the animals on the property.

Really had fun at this place. Only did the tasting, would like to go back and tour the castle as well. Went with a group of 5 people. Our Sommelier (or salesman) was very entertaining as well as telling the stories of their wines. It was crowded with several friendly, happy wine lovers enjoying the wines and the social aspect...

I thought this winery was over priced and very cheesy. Was very dissapointed when we got there. I would recommend going to other wineries in the area or smaller ones to get a true experience.

If the wine tasting is the most important part of your experience then this is not the place for you. If you want incredible landscape VERY unique architecture then you will enjoy this. I can't say enough about how wonderful the castle is. Every single detail was authentic and the owner should be commended for his attention to detail. It... More

Loved the castle. Saved this tour for our last day in Napa. Definitely worth the trip to just tour the castle. The views and the wine was incredible. Maria our tour host was awesome. Her knowledge was very impressive. I would go back again.

Beautiful flowers, trees and a Castle! The guided tour was interesting and the wine sampling was delicious. I received my shipment today so what could be better? Check out the lemon grapeseed oil in the gift shop. It is fabulous!!
