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

Beautiful place to visit, warmed by the owners themselves who we met, mother and son who were very gracious and grateful to have so many people there for wine tasting. Wine was incredible, loved the Gewurtztraminer , corpasso and amarosso my favourites. Was only disappointed by the patio pizza oven, not much to look as yet, hopefully they'll get a... More

Although the facility is still undergoing renovations, this winery was one of our favourite stops on our wine getaway. They dry the grapes used in some of their wines producing bigger, more flavorful wine than many of the Niagara wineries. We especially found the sauvignon blanc, cab franc icewine and all of the reds to be excellent and left with... More

When we entered we were greeted and asked to wait as they were going to wait for space at a tasting bar for us to be together.We waited for about 15... More

My Fiancé and I spent 3 hours at this winery last weekend. We met the owners and had a great tasting expert Mike tell us all about the wines, labels and what we should taste in accordance with our preferences.

Fabulous wines, friendly service and a breathtaking property. This is my absolute favorite winery in NOTL. This was our first stop on our trip this year and will be our first stop next year as well. If you like big, bold red wines, this is the place for you.

The COLANERI family left no ingredient out when building their winery. One need only step onto the winery to experience the celebration of tradition, the love of family and the passion behind great wine!

i will drive over the border for the day just to visit this winery. Of course we all have to keep it in perspective that if it is a busy weekend, you can not expect miracles with the tasting. If those of you want to crash winerys to just suck wine and be obnixous, DO not waste you time or... More
