The Krimulda area is unique in at least the Baltics, as there are three castles located here, each within a cannon shot’s distance from one another – the Sigulda castle, Turaida castle and the Krimulda castle. All three castles are cooperating – tourists can use the special three castle offer.

Gardner’s story. Tour for city-dwellers (€40.00 per group)

A tour of the recently restored garden of the manor. Back in the days of the sanatorium, when children stayed in the manor for several months and even years, the manor’s manager Dace Vanaga-Mikane noticed that many children do not recognise greens and do not know how potatoes or herbs are grown. Over the years, the manor’s garden, where vegetables for the catering needs were grown, was restored and a tour along the furrows, greenhouses and orchards was created. Now both large and small visitors can walk along the flowerbeds, learn about seedlings and the most popular products of the manor period, as well as sample the new harvest.

Tastings

Production of home-made alcohol has a long history and economic significance in manors – the alcoholic beverages were taken to the market and the funds obtained there allowed the manors to expand and build splendid buildings. In Krimulda too vodka, mead and wine were once made. Almost a century after the end of the manor era – in 2009 – Latvian winemaker Jānis Mikans placed the first bottle with wine made from the manor’s apple in the cellar to ferment. Over the years the nuances of winemaking have been thoroughly learned and the range – significantly expanded. “We have almost as many wines as there are berries and flowers in Latvia,” Mikans says. Now the harvest from the manor’s garden is not enough, so farmers form the local area are helping by supplying ecologically grown blackberries, raspberries, apples and other fruits and berries. 

When tasting the Cremon wines in the natural, historic environment, you will experience the glory of the times past. Here you will be able to see the subtleties of the winemaking process, enjoy the wonderful view of the Gauja river valley and to taste many varieties of wines. 

Wine tastings for groups of up to 30 usually take place at the winery itself, while tastinges for larger ones – in the manor’s hall. 
Tasting groups can pre-order also the “Master’s lunch” – a delicious multi-course meal.
