  • 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?

  • Beautiful place. The view and the vineyards are great with lots of information about the wine making proces and the seasonal work that is done. The castle inside is less special but for €7 who cares, it’s beautiful.
  • Nice castle, the panorama that you can see from the castle's hill and from the top of it's towers is amazing. The museum inside the castle is interesting and there is a nice shop full of wines and typical foods of this region.
  • Nice castle with interesting and modern expo on wine and on truffles. Great 360 degree views from the surrounding gardens. Worth the detour
  • A must-visit for anyone staying in Langhe. The castle itself is beautiful, and offers an extremely educational and informative experience for anyone who's interested in learning about the region's history, as well as past and present winemaking. We loved our visit and look forward to returning soon. We returned a few days later at night to take pictures of the castle which is lit up every night with the colors of the Italian flag, and it was beautiful to see at night.
  • Very nice castle and extensive museum with everything you want to know about wine. Also has a restaurant and enoteca if you’d like to try local specialities.
