After reading negative reviews, I did not go to the castle. My daughter and I limited ourselves to an external examination. After all, the wine Museum is a controversial thing. The wine should be on the palate in the mouth, and the smell in the nose. Therefore, it is better to spend 8 euros not to go inside, but to go to the Wine tour on the left, where you can try 8 inexpensive wines with this money. This is more interesting in this case. And the castle is clearly visible from the outside.

It was nice to see but not really about the castle and its uses as most of it was given over to the history of wine which in Barolo should have its own exhibition location.

If you stay around Asti or Alba, this historic place should be on your bucket list, independent of you being a wine connaisseur or not! The self-guided tour is worth every minute and your Barolo wine will never taste the same.

CAstello Falletti stands at the place of fortifications going back to at least the 10th century. In fact, parts of the original foundation can still be discerned in the great tower, which is visible for many miles around town. Most of the current structure, however, is the result of multiple additions and restorations, thanks to the efforts and vision of members of the Falletti family that acquired the castle in the 13th century. Medieval wars resulted in major damage to the castle, but each time, it was restored and improved. Today, it stands in great condition, one of the best preserved castled in the Langhe region. The Falletti family left the property in the early 19th century, to move to Turin, and upon the death of the last member of the family, the castle became the seat of the Opera Pia Barolo, a not-for-profit organization charged with administering the Falletti properties. In the late 1870s a college (Barolo COllege) was establishe on the site and continued its activities until 1958. Eventually Barolo township took over the ownership and management of the property and in 2010 the WiMu, one of the best wine museums of the country, was established. This is a multimedia program that occupies five floors of the castle and is well worth a visit.

Barolo is a great place to visit for many reasons additional to its world wide known wines. It is so picturesque with great restaurants and wineries and this historical castle than blends perfectly with the rest of the village. The castle houses a surreal museum of wine

Ancient manor house renovated both internally and externally. The Castle hosts the Wine Museum: a journey of wine culture and tradition, through history, art, cinema, music, literature and cuisine. The route, starting from the panoramic terrace to the cellars, retraces the history of wine from its dawn until today, involving visitors with interactive and multimedia installations. Both the history of the castle and the layout of the various rooms created from the ancient rooms are interesting.

The charm of the castle, excellently preserved and immersed in the beautiful town of Barolo, attracts the eye. The exhibition is very beautiful, varied, with attention to detail and highly immersive. It involves adults and children. Very kind, helpful and well-trained staff. Worth the asking price. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
