The visit of the small castle was nice although it would have been more complete with a small tour of the vineyard. The lunch at the end of the visit is not to be missed for the quality and genuineness of the local dishes offered. To report the courtesy and availability of our local guide. Excellent wine tasting.

Unique and particular experience, an expert guide and a magnificent place, not to mention the fine wines that you go to taste! Super recommended :)

Fantastic experience. The current owner of the castle passionately told his story about the estate and the wines they made there.
