Castello di Grinzane Cavour Reviews
There are two main reasons to visit the castle the first is the stunning view over the area, which also explains why they chose to place the castle at this strategic point, the other is the museum... more »
Really enjoyed the castle and especially the vistas. Beautiful castle wonderfully restored and modernized without losing its medieval feel. more »
Grinzane Cavour castle is home to the internationally famous truffle auction sale. I took part in a wine tasting there and I have to say that it’s a very cozy place for that kind of activity. On the other side if you are looking for a good local wine for a reasonable price you’re probably in the wrong place since!
Well worth a visit if you're in the area. It's a medium-sized castle/tower on a hill, surrounded by stunning views. For 6 EUR you can walk around the castle museum which has a detailed history of wine-making in the region, with a focus on a 19th century local politician. There are videos, displays, a gift shop containing many local wines and produce, and a cafe/restaurant.
