Most of the wines are made with the traditional Italian appassimento style of drying grapes, including a large portfolio of red, white and dessert wines. A new series has been introduced, made in the “recioto” style of making dessert wines. The winery is built in the Romanesque style featuring a captivating panoramic view of the vineyard and escarpment atop the St. David’s Bench appellation. The wine tasting bar overlooks the production area, allowing visitors to see the process. We, La famiglia Colaneri, are always on hand to share the experience and the passion that went into the making of our wines and our winery. « less

This place is like driving up to a castle, very inviting and eye pleasing! Impressive really! Unfortunately not 5 stars at this time because of some mild construction going on right in the front of the building, maybe some fountain work it looked like. Tacky orange fence and all... But... Don't let that deter you from visiting! The wine was... More

Came across this place by recommendation from another winery! As soon as you pull in it amazes you! The design of the building itself is award winning in my book! Inside, the staff are wonderful and engaging. We tasted wines and they told us about each one as well as their plans for their winery in the near future! We... More

A group of us stopped in for a tasting while enjoying wine country in our own back yard! Very nice facility which is family owned. The wines were very good but the service could use a tiny polish after waiting for a little and being snapped at for speaking up about requesting some tasting. I do understand the stress of... More

We had a great tasting at this family owned winery. A great selections of whites and reds, featuring wines enriched by drying some or all of the grapes before pressing, which concentrates the sugars and other flavors. The Pinot Grigio, Gewertztraminer, and Ca. Sauv. (Corraggioso Amaroso) were my favorites. If you spend 100$ or more, you get 10% back as... More

Colaneri is always our first stop in Niagara-on-the Lake during visits to the region. After stumbling on the building (it's near Chateau des Charmes, another of our favourites) a year ago we fell in love with the place. The bell tower is my favourite part of the building. They started serving pizza and wine on their outdoor patio, and that's... More

Amazing event. Great hosting by the group at the winery. Love the wines and the people. The reds are bold and the whites, refreshing. Food was great. Cigars were also good.

We have been here this summer and last summer. This my favorite Cabernet Sauvignon -Corraggioso Amaroso. I enjoyed this winery better than any in Napa Valley, and it was the most enjoyable one we went to in upstate New York (Finger Lakes Region) and Niagara-on-the-lake area. There are others I like also. Go here!

Very Unique winery. As you come up the entry drive, the view is breathtaking. They are in the process of building a large fountain at the end of the drive which I'm sure will be incredible. The outside area in front of the entrance feels like an Italian piazza where you can sit at a table and drink the Colaneri... More

My sister and I visited here for a belated birthday trip after another winery was sold out of the tour we wanted to go on. There is no tour here, but we were drawn to this place by the fact that someone had recommended it to my sister, and it was close to the Outlet Collection of Niagara that we... More

If you like bold red wines... there is no better! Although pricy compared to some others, it is well worth it. Their Syrah is truly unnrivaled... peppery tones galore! We rarely spen less than $250 when we visit. The staff is awesome and knowledgeable.... especially Pam! When you leave there you feel like you were really welcome. And the winery... More
