About
Grinzane Cavour Castle stands in one of the most spectacular settings in the Langa, just 5 km from Alba. The imposing building, erected around a central tower dating back to the first half of the XI century, can be admired in all its original beauty following the restoration that began in 1960, in celebration of the first centenary of the Unification of Italy. The Castle now houses the "Cavour" Regional Enoteca, the first to be set up in Piedmont in 1967. This is a prestigious showcase for the very best Piedmontese wines and grappas, foremost amongst them being Barolo and Barbaresco. The wines undergo a strict selection process before being displayed and placed on sale along with leading local food products. Tastings possible.

absolutely disorganized

on the old website they do not specify you’ve got to book, otherwise you’ll be forced to wait forever outside in the sun. It is unbelievable how such a big organization can lack in the basics of communication

I really like visiting UNESCO sites, and I loved the wine region...but I was quite nonplussed by this museum. Maybe I should have tried the restaurant and done some wine tasting too?

A stunning landmark
A stunning 11th century castle, built and expanded across the subsequent centuries, in a dominant position on the top of a hill, with a breathtaking 360° view on the surroundings, especially on the world famous vineyards of the Langhe, aligned in precise parallel lines like well combed hair, alternated with just as well kept fields cultivated with hazelnuts, another of the local essential crops of the region. Inside, the Piedmontese Regional Wine Shop, where one can find some among the finest wines of this area and, thus, of the world.

Must see...
Oct 2019
There are two main reasons to visit the castle the first is the stunning view over the area, which also explains why they chose to place the castle at this strategic point, the other is the museum which is located in the castle where you can see an exhibition of the life and work in this region in the 17th -18th century.
The place is not accessible for people with walking difficulties as in the museum there are many stairs to climb

Interesting, well presented museum with a focus on wine
Sep 2019
Excellent signage, easy to find. Beautiful setting. Expansive views. Modest entry price. Several floors with interesting displays and objects that are explained well in English as well as Italian. Some video. Nice little cafe we used and a fancy restaurant with a Michelin star that we did not visit. This was the best presented castle/ attraction that we visited in Piedmont. Highly recommend it ... as long as you can climb a lot of stairs.

Nice stop
Mar 2019
If you are around and you have a couple of hours I’d recommend to stop at this lovely castle. It contains a wine museum inside and some artifacts about count Cavour and his lifestyle. It’s nothing that special to put it on a must see list but it’s quite a nice place to visit on a beautiful day. There is a store on the ground floor where you can purchase wine and some typical products from the area. In the castle is also a 1 Star Michelin restaurant. There are vineyards around and the view is very pleasing for the eye. We spent around 1-1,5h there.
