  • Saturday 4 February I visited this wonderful castle with friends ... wonderful abode of Camillo Benso di Cavour completely renovated in 1960. the ticket costs only 1 € 5 € and with only modest plus you can enjoy comfortable and interesting audio guide ... it's worth visiting this castle!

  • We visited the outside but not the salt for reasons of time. Majestic castle, well-preserved, private conferences with specially arranged rooms. We dropped in to interesting Piedmont regional enoteca cavour located inside the Castle, with free entry, where you can buy, in addition to wines, local specialities. Very friendly staff who provided us with some information. For those who go from Alba and barolo is also worth a visit.

  • 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).
  • Vista sui vigneti incantevole, castello bellissimo. Una tappa immancabile
  • 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.
  • Nice panoramic view. Plenty of parking.
