  • The room is cluttered, the extraneous boxes distracted from the info given by the owners. I was surprised at the plastic "Walmart" chairs. The elderly owners seemed to enjoy their talks and jokes. The...  more »

  • Definitely not for wine snobs. Not at all what we expected, but we had a great time. Unconventional as it may be, Joe and his wife are good people and make tasty wine. We bought several bottles and wish we could get it shipped to our state. Sadly, that's not possible. Perfect for the laid back wine drinker.
  • We bought a Groupon for over $50. Wine and cheese tasting. The wine was not aged well at all and the cheese was served cold, from trader joes pre-packed. The owners, not only own the winery, they live upstairs from the place. The old man doesn't walk and will pour your sample of wine in his electric go-cart thingy, the woman sits there and talks but that's it. If you're looking for a real winery, go to plant city. If you're looking for a good bottle of wine, go to the supermarket. If you want to pay $30 for a bad bottle, go there. If you have money, enough to give these nice folks retirement money, buy this place up. It screams potential for a bigger and more organized operation.
  • TERRIBLE TERRIBLE TERRIBLE DO NOT GO THEY CHARGE YOU TAX AND THAT IS NOT CORRECT PER GROUPON ITS NOT A WINERY AT ALL THEY DONT MAKE WINE THEY BUY WINE FROM OTHERS THEY TALKED THE WHOLE TIME ABOUT THEM SELVES AND THEIR ART WORK THEY ARE LIKE 80'S NO PROBLEM WITH AGE BUT NOT A REAL WINE TASTING.THEY GIVE YOU A DOLLAR BOX OF CHOCOLATE WHITMANS PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY THEY OWNER LADY PICKING HER FEET OMG DISCUSTING! I GIVE THEM ZERO STARTS ZERO ZERO ZERO DO DO DO NOT GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • We enjoyed our time at the Castle Winery. Joe had some great jokes and the wine was very good. Follow the directions on the Groupon and everything will be just fine. The poor reviews are mostly a result of people showing up at the winery without an appointment. An older couple live and work on site and probably have unannounced drop-ins often. We enjoyed the tasting and bought some wines that we liked a lot.
  • WHAT A JOKE! We purchased a Living Social deal for 4 people at this place. Paid $38.99 (regular price $222.11!). Supposed to include wine tasting for 4, crystal wine glasses and full glass of wine for each person, 2 sangria kits and a wine education lecture. We got 1 sip of 5 different wines, a glass of wine, 1 Sangria kit and the glasses WERE NOT crystal!!! I have traveled all over the world and been to countless wineries and never been ripped off so badly. When we questioned the price, the owner turned from Mrs. Santa Claus to Linda Blair in the Exorcist. Embarrassed us in front of other customers. Horrible experience and the wines sucked too. The Sangria kit that you get is not even made by them and can be purchased on line elsewhere for $4.95. AVOID THIS PLACE!
