“This is like going to Sicily, without the travel.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

A very special place, and special people. John and his wife Marguerite are the best, amazing Wines and the Olive Oil is superb. You have not been to a place with this combination of service, knowledge, and friendly atmosphere. They do welcome you and make you feel like family. We just "dropped in" and stayed for 2 hours. We are definitely going back and soon.

“Catania's Winery: a great outing with friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

I've lived in Englewood for almost 9 years and didn't know about Catania's Winery until my friends Leon and Christie recommended it. What a delightful way to spend the afternoon. John was so informative and personable and the wine was superb! Catania's Winery will now be on my "to do" list when visitor's come to town. I've already ordered John's special stuffed bread for when my brother and his friends come to town next month. I look forward to meeting John's wife on my next visit.

“Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Extra Fine Hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

John & Marguerite hosted special gathering for a small group of friends. The food and wine was excellent but what made the evening so special were our hosts, The Catania's.

They are two delightful and gracious hosts. John gave instructions on the art of wine and olive oil making including tastings of his special olive oil.

The retail space is small but supplied with just about any wine related treats & supplies one would want. The dining area is in the winery, next to the barrels, and used only for special parties.

A little hard to find but don't be put off by the industrial setting.

“Our visit to Catania's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

We will come back to see John on our next visit. I have been visting the Englewood are for 30+ years. I have never thought such a wonderful place would be hidden in the industrial part of town. He took the time to show us ,teach us & share with us all about the way he makes his wine & olive oil.He made us feel like family. We ended up shipping close to a case of wine & olive oil back home. Had a wonderful time!!!

“Catania's is an Englewood gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

A little off the beaten path, this winery is well worth the time to find it. They serve quality whites and reds from time tested recipes. John Catania and his wife make it all the more enjoyable by sharing their quaint space and showing unforgettable hospitality.
