  • This castle is just beautiful, it is surrounded by vineyards. The setting is great with all these villages perched nearby. Restaurant and cafeteria on site as well as a shop of the wines of the region

  • The castle is really magnificent: situated between the vineyards of the Langhe, on top of a hill, offering spectacular views. The visit inside coast €5 at full price, but you can make special rates for seniors, children ... In addition, at the price of €10, the visit may be driven by ' Cavour in person. Inside the castle there is a Michelin-starred restaurant of Marc Lanteri and its bar in the inner courtyard (normal bar prices-1.50 € €3 coffee, canned drink). There are benches to relax and enjoy the view.

  • Enjoyable visit with free entry by subscription museums we have everyone in the family. Path that makes you discover the history of the Castle tied to the territory, to the world, farmer and wine in particular. Excellent wine merchants in "risk portfolio" for great wines. Recommended!

  • The castle hosts the Langhe Museum. It has a good restaurant and a bar
  • A must attraction when you visit Piemonte. And enjoy great wine tasting.
  • Marc Lanteri al ristorante Al Castello di Grinzane. We ate here two nights in a row and had two very different experiences. On the first night the food and service was only average while on the second everything was pretty much perfect. I guess anyone can have a bad day at the office. Stand out dishes came from the primi section of the menu - gnocchi stuffed with buffalo mozzarella which came with scampi and red shrimp and a daily special of pasta stuffed with goats cheese topped with shaved black truffle. Try to make sure you leave some room for cheese - which is served before the dessert as it should be 😀. We shared a plate made up of 6 different local cheeses, in variety of styles, which was sublime. As you would expect the wine list reads like war and peace - all the big names and vintages along with some lesser known and more wallet friendly choices. My top tip to get the most out of the lovely dining room would be to request a table which has been set up to enable you to enjoy the stunning views (I found it surprising that lots of the tables are laid up so you have your back to the windows). Highly recommended (on a good night).
  • excellent place to visit...
  • OK castle but there are many of these. There was a nice exposition on the influence of the original owner on viniculture in Italy. The objects in display where rather boring.
