You have to see this replica of a medieval Italian castle to believe it—and thousand of people do, each day. Since it opened in 2007 after 13 years of construction, the "Napa Castle" has become one of the valley's most popular tourist attractions.

Building a castle was a long-time goal of fourth-generation winemaker Dario Sattui, whose V. Sattui Winery in St. Helena also welcomes dogs. Read up on the history before you go to get the most out of your visit. Please call or check website for hours, tour options and reservation policies.

Fido may not be able to join you in the tasting room or gift shop, but you're both welcome on self-guided tours and on the spacious grounds outside the castle, where photo ops are many.

Dog Access:

  • Dogs allowed in picnic area or patio

Dog-friendly amenities:

Napa Valley isn’t all about food and wine; it’s also a magnet for artists and art lovers from around the world. Combining a dog walk with a little art appreciation is a great way to spend a day—and get some unique backdrops for your photos while you’re at it. Start with the 2017-2019 Napa Art Walk, called “Shifting Perspectives,” featuring 10 sculptures by artists from four Western states installed in downtown locations. more »
