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

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

Love this winery. Wines are great, staff are wonderful, building is beautiful. We love the stories behind the labels about the family. There are even little tables to sit at outside. This has become one of our favorite wineries.

We went to Colaneri on our way back to the States and arrived around ten minutes before they were able to start doing tastings. We happily wandered around, looking at merchandise and the plethora of stainless barrels visible over the balcony. Our tasting was excellent, as each wine was explained, as well as how the label came about. Each has... More

What a wonderful afternoon spent at the Colaneri Winery Estate. From the moment we had driven up to the beautiful Tuscan building our Italian experience had begun. The gorgeous exterior was picturesque; bringing me back to my own grandfathers vineyards. As we entered Into the building we were immediately greeted warmly by the staff. Our wine tasting session, led by... More

We went with a recommendation for a Shiraz, but we were told they sold out of it though it is still on brochure. Another wine on shelf had same label and price, being marketed as an alternative. We tasted it & others but were not impressed. One had a very vinegary aftertaste & another was watery. With most priced $30... More

Hello Ms. Walter, I would like to thank you for your visit to Colaneri Estate Winery. This review confuses all of our family here since we have had a Syrah (or Shiraz) available to taste and purchase since we opened 4 years ago. It has never been sold out or unavailable to taste. Wine is a personal preference so to... More

Colaneri is a stunning estate winery with a beautiful Tuscan villa. Their staff took the time to explain the fascinating history behind each wine. We didn't feel rushed and enjoyed sampling their diverse selection. A highly recommended stop and the wine is worth the price.

This winery and event center is under construction, but looks like it will be worth the wait. It's unique architecture, knowledgeable wine server and delicious Italian style wines in an elegant (though temporary) tasting room made this a good experience and whet our appetite (or thirst!) to come back when completed.
