After paying $45 each for a tasting served with a charcuterie platter, we were pushed along by the crowds though out this make believe Tuscan castle. It's quite clever in its marketing to people with little knowledge or taste in wines. We found the room allocated to our tasting located on the second floor, shown to a table and introduced... More

It's something different. If you are in the area and would like to see a castle it is the place to go. If you don't want to pay, then you can walk around the perimeter of the castle. The ground is very grand and well maintained. However, if you want to go inside, you have to pay a fee. The... More

The castle is amazing! We took the deluxe tour and were taken deep inside the caves into secret rooms and a private tasting. This place is NOT to be missed!

It's a castle like in a movie about knights or King Arthur that is not low budget. Moat, Draw Bridge, Portcullis, Court Yard, Towers, Stables, etc. A lot of farmyard animals and some peacocks, etc. Worth seeing as the grounds are beautiful and the structures are very impressive.

We went to this winery as part of a trip of 3 and would say that unfortunately it was the worst. Although a very cool looking place (hence the 3 stars otherwise it would have been less) we found it to be very pretentious and as it is quite a large place it loses that personal touch. The wine tasting... More

Did not have time for tour but did walk around and enjoy tastings. Lots of animals on grounds, plenty shopping options and a large variety of wines. I was especially pleased to find some sweeter alternatives as most of the winery's don't do sweet. went with girl friends but would also suggest for family

Imagine going deep into a castle, complete with a 50 seat dining table, moat, dungeon, with lots of nooks and crannies to explore, add a winery & you have Castle Winery. This could easily be somewhere in Italy, but fortunately its in Napa Valley. Its a fantastic tour, well worth it!

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
