Overview

Grinzane Cavour Castle stands in one of the most spectacular settings in the Langa, just 5 km from Alba. The imposing building, erected around a central tower dating back to the first half of the XI century, can be admired in all its original beauty following the restoration that began in 1960, in celebration of the first centenary of the Unification of Italy. The Castle now houses the "Cavour" Regional Enoteca, the first to be set up in Piedmont in 1967. This is a prestigious showcase for the very best Piedmontese wines and grappas, foremost amongst them being Barolo and Barbaresco. The wines undergo a strict selection process before being displayed and placed on sale along with leading local food products. Tastings possible.

Combine first class museology and design with intrinsically interesting history in a beautiful site and you have a recipe for an excellent family visit. My personal interest in viticulture and wine making was fully satisfied to the point where I spent big in the Enoteca...More

Wine shop had interesting selection with lots of local food options also. Kids in the shop wanted chocolate and nuts options. 360° views make for great photos. Location is a little out of the way - you need a car to visit.

This is a prominent castle/estate in the piedmont region. Spectacular views of the surrounding region. The castle is well preserved and the displays are informative and entertaining. A great way to become acquainted with the wines, food and festivals of the area!

The place is so amazing, you can have the view of the langhe, plus the castle held the auction for truffles, great wine and you can also have a tour in the rooms of the castle for a low cost.
