We joined the english speaking trip held on a wednesday at 11am - it was very interesting, the guide was very friendly and knowledgeable, very passionate about her place of work. Excellent value for 5 euros which included the tour and wine tasting at thd end.

A small but interesting museum. The free tasting was a definite highlight, with a range of (admittedly inexpensive) red, white and rose wines on offer. There is no charge to enter, so it makes perfect sense to drop by if you're passing.

There's a bit of a museum, but it's more about wine tasting and a number of wines are free to try. They have bottles on optics and you help yourself. They aren't their best wines but it does give you an idea of what can be bought for a few euros. You can also pay to taste some of their... More

We thought we were going to visit a wine museum - instead it was a shop with some old wine making equipment.

Lorenzo O, Social Media Manager at Zeni WInery and Wine Museum, responded to this review

Dear Dix 60, what you define as some old wine equipment actually is the result of careful research and conservation of ancient materials, that have a great value (both economic and historical). As a matter of fact they are really hard to find in other museums. We are very sorry that you did not enjoy our Wine Museum, contrary to... More

Loved the scenery of Bardolino and looking at the traditional way of making wines, this has been in the same families hand for generations. You are able to taste the wine for free and the museum is free also. The wines they make are just terrific and very very reasonable. Bardolino is a beautiful place.

The English speaking tour of Zeni winery on Wednesdays at 11am is not to be missed, it's thorough, the wine tasting is great but the real star of the show is Sara the tour guide. Full of information, super friendly she answered all out questions and then some - her English is great and she really made it a wonderful... More

Short tour just above Bardolino. Lots of information and tour of the magnificent cellars, followed by generous wine tasting.
