I'm surprised to see a couple of negative reviews as I loved this place! I found the staff pleasant, helpful and very informative. The winery is easy to find, on foot, or even by car. It is only approx 1 mile from the centre of Bardolino and well sign posted. Myself and my Mum walked it. It was a steady... More

.... but a good tasting session follows and the lack of information about what seen suddenly seemed less important

We walked to the location of the museum - a gentle uphill walk with nice views across the lake. However, we found the museum not particularly interesting, just some old machinery. Left with the impression they were more interested in selling wine.

Dear Mike B, Thanks to have visit our Cellar! Our wine museum was an idea of the present owners’ father Gaetano Zeni. It is built in 1991 with the purpose to offer evidence of the ancient winemaking culture of Zeni family and for this reason we can speak about a “family wine museum”. In order to better explain all its... More

We found this place by chance on a rainy day, looking for something to do in Bardolino. Nice demonstration of history in making zeni wines, ability to taste wines before buying and there are very good priced wines on shelfs. Well worth for the hour we spend as it was a totally diffrent experience for all of us , you... More

Excellent wines, friendly personal. Worth booking a private tasting session in the cellars. Their Amarone is excellent as well as prosecco and goldmedal winning pink spumate! Also rose with glass cork (about 8€) is excellent with risotto made of local vialone nano rice. Free wine tasting every day until end of october. Big variety of different wines to taste free,even...

The Wine Museum has some old wine making machinery and access to the bottling and corking area. The wine tasting is fantastic as long as you are not driving!! Taste the best here, you will enjoy all the varieties.

We visit the museum every year when on our holidays. It is very informative especially on the history of winemaking in the area. The modern machinery is fascinating to watch especially the massive bottling machine. We enjoyed a glass(or two) of wine before returning via the Olive Museum, a further 1/2 hrs walk.

The Zeni land and museum is absolutely beautiful and the wine is amazing and well-priced. However, what REALLY stood out was the friendly service!!! These people clearly love their job and want to share their interests with others! I will definitely go back and bring others!

Regularly I bring family and friends to Zeni. The Open cantina is a good chance for them to sell a lot of wine and bring in new customers. Mostly there are tourists going in and out of Zeni every day during the summer. It's a hopping place. In fact I like it. The one star today is the customer service.... More
