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.

I was able to visit Zeni when visiting Italy to study family business. The Zeni family has a long history with wine making. They company takes pride in there products and make it with care. I was able to walk through the museum. It is very informative and interesting to learn how the processes have changed over the years. With... 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.

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.

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
