Grinzane Cavour Castle is one of the best examples of the medieval architecture in the Langhe area, Piedmont. Its present shape is the result of a complete restoring made in 1961, that has brought it back in time, in its original features after the many restorations.
The most ancient part of the building, the central tower, was built in the XI century, while the main building in the XV. First owned by Bonifacio del Vasto in the XII century, the castle has had many different owners: from the marquis of Busca to those of Monferrato, until it was bought, at the beginning of the nineteenth century, by Michele di Cavour, father of Camillo, who widened the already vaste land surrounding the castle.
From the Benso di Cavour family it was then sold to the Alfieri di Sostegno, who gave it to the town of Alba in 1932. After the restorations in 1961, it now is a Regional Cellar and Piedmont wine shop.
On the first floor there’s the Trattoria del Castello restaurant, and up again a museum. Beautiful is the masque salon, from the sixteenth century, with a precious wooden painted ceiling. This hall is dedicated to civil weddings officiated by the local authorities. A part of the museum shows objects of the local rural culture, while other rooms deal with the white truffle, relics from the Cavour period and a wine exhibition about the Langhe in the Roman era.
The castle has a breath taking view on the surrounding Langhe hills and vineyards, what best backdrop for a shooting after your wedding ceremony??
