About Lobo Castle

We would like to introduce you to a bit of Europe nestled into the Santa Monica Mountains between Malibu and Agoura Hills. Castello Dontico was designed by owner Denise Antico-Donlon. Her love of everything medieval prompted her to spent many years researching the 17th century. This included numerous trips to Scotland, England and Italy. She had a dream of building a castle of her own that started in the year 2000 and was completed nine years later. You will appreciate the Celtic stone towers, the beautiful hillside gardens and a well fountain nestled in the center of the Tuscan inspired courtyard that separates the main Castle from the guest tower.

We're a private event venue and we offer many types of events, including Wedding Ceremonies, Wedding Receptions, Wedding Rehearsal Dinners, Banquet/Dinner, Private Parties, Corporate Events, Filming / Photo Shoots, Cooking classes, Wine pairings, Reunions, Bar/Bat Mitzvah's, Quincernaera's, etc. We also offer our own catering services.

    I absolutely LOVED everything about my wedding. Denise was AMAZING to work with and made sure that everything was to my standards throughout the entire wedding planning process. I loved the venue, it was just beautiful and private and gave me the elegant italian castle wedding setting that I always dreamed of. We were married under their beautiful oak trees and our dinner took place in the beautiful castle courtyard. It was absolutely perfect for my intimate wedding with our 55 guests.

    While my husband and I didn't get married at Denise's gorgeous residence in Agoura (a little inland from Malibu) we did hire her and her incredible team (Lobo Castle Productions) as our caterer. Denise is one of those people you immediately take to as she's sincere and easy going, creative and warm. All that combined with her unbelievable culinary skills and event planning experience makes for a really wonderful experience. We could not have had our dream wedding without her ceaseless and tireless help.

    After our initial venue cancelled on us 2 months before our wedding, Denise helped us find an even better location a couple miles away: Cielo Farms--a gorgeous vineyard nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains. She went out of her way constantly to make things easier for us and to help us execute the vision we had for our wedding. One example of this is my last minute idea (literally, the day before the wedding) to wrap fresh rosemary around each napkin setting. The night before our big day with a million things to finalize she snipped 150 pieces of rosemary from her own garden and surprised us the day of. Each napkin was perfectly wrapped in twine and rosemary. Another example: I had an idea for rosemary olive oil cookies but couldn't afford adding anything else to our wedding and she again surprised us with several freshly baked ones as a gift. Unbelievable. Oh, and of course they were melt-in-your-mouth delicious. As was everything else she cooked for us.

    Our families (not easy people to please as my family is Persian), friends and most importantly ourselves, found the food to be the most delicious food any of us had tasted at a wedding. Everything was fresh, homemade and high quality. From the seasonal, local sourced produce used for her appetizers (the cutest tomato onion tarts ever, ceviche, beef kabobs, grilled chicken with cucumber yogurt sauce, cheeses, etc.) to the main course (barbecued salmon with tomatillo and pea salsa, porcini and rosemary encrusted tr

    Denise, who owns and operates the castle, catered my wedding, and it was spectacular. We had lasagna from her own family recipe, with light, creamy Italian ricotta, hand-made(!!) pasta and a sauce that came straight from the organic tomatoes and herbs in the garden. Everything was delicious, and it added a special personal touch to our wedding to share handmade Italian food with our friends and family.

    The Castle is an amazing place -- a very cool, dramatic building in a canyon surrounded by vineyards and woods. It's a striking location with a welcoming, family-oriented vibe. If you are getting married or planning a party, you should check this place out!
