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.

Small castle on top of the hill with charming panorama on the vineyards. There is a restaurant inside but we did not visit. There is a museum. Nice little town. Stayed at Casa Pavesi Hotel and recommend it highly!

This historic and stately castle sits high on a hill top and is worthy of a stop just to see the views from here! There is a lovely park next to the castle where you can sit on the grass and enjoy the scenic beauty....More

Grinzane Cavour Castle is great and the surrounding view is amazing. Definitely worth checking out when in the area.

Located discretely inside the castle, we reserved for lunch at this 1 Michelin star restaurant and were not disappointed with our 5-course tasting menu for 110 euros each including pairing with wines. We were seated in a private room with a panoramic vista of the...More

Just a few minutes outside of Alba, this castle and the grounds were very well maintained. A perfect place to have a picnic and take in the vineyards and very quaint town below the castle.

The views are fenomenal and the walk around the castle through the vinyards is a must. The museum is also amazing, learned so much. Highly recommend a visit!
