Thompson oil and wine tour

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

Travelled by Ferry from Densenzano, walked 20 min from port to winery using combo of google maps and local signs. Bit of an uphill walk but worth it. Note when passing house next to winery sign says beware of dog but still got a big fright when it appeared suddenly at fence!! Museum visit takes 5-10 min, bottling plant wasn't... More

The museum is small but informative within it's limitations. Don't go if you are looking for a learned exhibition on the science and history of wine-making in the area. However, as a free add on to the tasting room, it is a very welcome display. Guided tours of the winery are available but we did not go on one. You... More

Full declaration. Bardolino is not my favourite wine and I rarely get excited by a Lugana. However, a Ripasso or a well structured Valpolicella....So, the family said, let's go to a winery and we found Zeni. What a friendly, interesting and ultimately pleasing place. The museum was just the right size with some fascinating artefacts and the tasting room well-organised.... More

I especially appreciated the great and friendly service from the staff. The were very helpful in helping me find a good selection of wines to purchase from their cantina. They also went beyond...

The museum was small but pleasant.However the detailed notices were only in Italian with very brief English captions. The selection of wines to buy was good and the prices reasonable but as an individual visitor I did not see any sign of a wine tasting opportunity.

We had walked along the lakeside to Bardolino from Garda which is a lovely walk. After exploring Bardolino we decided to walk up the hill to the museum and winery. We spent awhile in the museum which was interesting with some great old black and white photos. We then went on to do some tastings. There are about 8 -10... More

We go to this winery most years, the wine is excellent and you can taste as you wish. We do travel by car but it is not too far to walk from Bardolino
