We didn't know what to expect and were delighted. You can see some old tools and machinery for wine making and this for free. Then you can try 12-15 different wines for free and a few special ones of you pay a low price. The wines are great and we ended up buying a few bottles to take home.

Walked up from our hotel. It took 40 minutes in 35 degree heat - all uphill. There is a small museum and a free tour at 11am most days. You get a free wine glass and can try about 6 red and 6 white wines. If you want to try the prosecco or more expensive wines you pay a minimum... More

Nice walk from Bardolino up to the Zeni winery. Museum interesting and free access. Also has free wine tasting and opportunity to buy (very cheaply) even if you only want one bottle. No pressure to buy.

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
