This tour and tasting was unbelievable. The drive up to The Castle was breathtaking. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable (he previously worked at The Sterling Vineyard) and a tad comicable. The architecture of the building was very interesting as you can tell Mr. Sattui was very detail-oriented (hiring architects from Austria, shipping bricks in from Italy, etc). The wine was very smooth and I liked how we could even choose to sample from the dessert wine.
We paid $26/person for a tour and tasting (since then, they have raised the fare to $31) and I thought it was money well spent. Especially since The Castle was recently seen in the series finale of ABC's "The Bachelor". This tour is particularly good for individuals who are not big wine fans as the tour of the massive Castle grounds is entertaining in itself. We toured The Castle and Hess Collection and this was everyone's favorite!
