  • Finely restored medieval castle, which offers a spectacular 360 degrees on hills and vineyards. Inside stocked wine bar and excellent restaurant. Worth a visit.

  • The Castle, itself, is certainly a piece of history, since Cavour lived. The location is excellent and dominates the Langhe. Too bad the predominance of commercial on the historical one. I went with some assiduity the Castle 30 years ago now, and honestly, I remember much less commercial: the same regional wine was marginal and the restaurant very good, was housed in the premises of the Castle. Now it seems the opposite: the Castle revolves around the winery and restaurant.

  • Wine tasting, local history and some damn beautiful views... On a clear day, you can see beautiful panoramas of the surrounding hills from the castle parks- it makes for a truly magical setting for wedding photos I imagine. The castle itself is visitable; there is a museum on local culture and history and there is also a large wine cellar that helps you get your head around the various wines the Region of Piemonte actually produces.
  • On the way to the “International truffle fair of Alba”, we stopped in this beautiful fairytale castle. Awide and interesting selection of wines and even a restaurant with view. Panoramic and amazing place.
