  • Lovely place. Ticket price absolutely content. Recommended for school-age children. You can relive a piece of history that has helped create our Italy. enhances the stubbornness and willpower of a man extremely determined and projected into the future. Interesting museum collections, well organized.

  • ... great choice in a sunny Sunday hung out for the langhe looking tell truffles and wine ... groomed and comprehensive descriptions in every room ... sometimes they make the visit accompanied by an actor who plays the count, from provare...il restaurant inside maybe a little too over the top, beautiful and definitely worth trying if you have the correct disposable income but for me a castle should remain a castle and just ... great store to end around, if you're in the area stop by and you will not regret ...

  • A word of advice to all. Verified when are the next visits of the castle of Grinzane led by actor Frank Urban, coming from 2017, and segnatevele should Easter on the calendar, so arrange your tour in the Langhe in conjunction with these beautiful performances. The visit offers many things, some history about the illustrious character, the territory and the Castle. Curiosity and a great theatrical interpretation, supported by excellent diction and liking it. The children, who will be involved by the count, will enjoy very much and the great will go away richer in spirit. A beautiful experience. Hello

  • 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.
