Eccentric couple who run the winery. It was a strange experience and not what I expected. The sangria was the worst I have ever tasted. The other wines were ok but not really... read more

$26 for a wine tasting and glass of wine. Horrible experience, ripoff all the way around. Very friendly while showing their "art" , then turned evil when questioned about price. Avoid at all costs.

It's not your typical winery tour/tasting, but we really enjoyed our visit to Castle Winery. The owners are "one of a kind" and we really enjoyed their wine. No vineyards, but well worth the visit.

The wife/owner was pushy and seemed frustrated with us that we just stopped by without reservations. We tasted the merlot but it was thin and lacked full flavor and body. The chocolate is a small box of Russell Stover's if that gives you an indication of the quality provided. We didn't pay for a tasting, which comes with the experience... More

Eccentric couple who run the winery. It was a strange experience and not what I expected. The sangria was the worst I have ever tasted. The other wines were ok but not really something I would rave about. I have done many wine tastings and this was just odd. The write up makes it sound like a lovely thing to... More

We had the 4 tastings and chocolate Groupon. The Sangiovese was by far the best. The surprise was the interesting and extensive art collection. Picture a funny and bickering old couple telling you about their art and wine.

Small but friendly. Owners were wonderful and their Sangria special was the best. Bought 3 very easy to make for yourself or friends.👍👀

This place was interesting to say the least. To begin with, it is located in what felt like a basemen/garaget and the "tour" was given by the husband and wife who own the winery. In the GROUPON we purchased, it indicated there would be wine, chocolates, nuts and cheese. Well, we had chocolate, but it was Halloween candy (you know... More

We weren't ever even able to get in. The lady was rude on the phone.....and when we actually went there to try to check it out, the "courtyard" was was overgrown and neglected.... very weird signage on the door. They supposedly were booked solid until 3:00 but when we went there at about 1:30 there was no sign of ANYONE... More

The couple that own the winery are very entertaining. They tell lots of personal funny stories while pouring the wine. The wine was MUCH better than we expected. We enjoyed our experience with them. We actually bought a few to bring home.

Looking for the commercial/corporate speak, don't go. Looking for the fancy high priced wines, don't go. Looking for a friendly, out of the way, down to earth tasting, you found it. The owners talk over them selves, are funny but informative. The shop is a cluster of things but the wine is worth the tasting. In most cases their wine... More
