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

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!!

Beautiful grounds and views make this a great spot to spend some time! Enjoyable tour of the castle. Look at and appreciate the owner's attention to detail in his homage to Tuscany... from the oak doors, iron work, stone work, and frescos hand painted by Italian craftsmen. Awesome selection of wines to sample, tour host friendly and helpful. Shop had... More

Great views, great wine what else could you want? Parents, please leave your kids at home. A wine tasting is no place for strollers and crying babies.

The castle was stunning and the scenery was amazing. The wine tasting was somewhat pricey, but comparable to other wineries in the area. The grounds were beautiful and there were roaming animals, chickens and goats, around everywhere. The staff and wine servers were helpful and knowledgeable. I enjoyed the tour and the samples of olive oil as well. There were... More
