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

No guided tour when we visited but interesting anyway. The old machinery presented some great photos opportunities and the wine tasting at the end allowed easy comparison of the various types.

We had a guided tour and then a wine tasting session as part of our coach tour. The girl showing us around the museum and vineyard was very enthusiastic and passionate, which made the tour very interesting. Her English was very good. We were then taken downstairs where we tasted 3 quality wines. We were given bread, meat and cheese... More

We went as part of a tour and were not disappointed. The explanations given were good and the wine tasting was superb. In fact one of the best tastings we've been to and we have gone to wine tastings all over the world.

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

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...
