Cool castle with a forest, but they don't let you walk through. Cheese and charcuterie tasting are added with the wine for a small fee and goes very well with the wines presented. Worth the visit!

People in my group balked at the price to get in, but once they did, everyone agreed it was probably worth it, especially with the wine tasting included. Wish they wouldn't charge extra for the dungeon space, they should just include everything. Beautiful spot for photos, and just a cool and authentic (we were told) castle.

One of the most interesting tours in the area. The castle is amazing with beautiful views. Great price for the quality of the tour and tasting which includes a barrel sample as well as bottle sampling. Wine is also very good.

This property is something out of a fairy tale. It is a true castle. It was breathtaking and the views were amazing. The wine was tasty however, I didn't love it and the wine server did not have much of a personality and wasn't interested in educating us about the wine. We did not take the tour because we were...

Probably one of the few vineyards in the Napa area that kids really will enjoy. Lots of fun areas to explore and it has a real castle feel.

This place was everyone's second favorite winery. We loved the beautiful look of this building and all the cool twists and turns once you're inside. You walk up these beautiful stairs to get inside, including crossing a bridge/moat. I could go on and on about how neat it was, especially since I have a love of European architecture. The downsides?... More

Probably the best wine tour in the area. Touring through the replica Medieval castle is a superb visual experience. The wine is a great complement to your palate. A knowledgeable and dedicated staff take you through the heart of the castle on what is the most unique wine experience you will ever have.
