Their story of Lambrusco is just one of a kind with not only history but also business lessons in it. And the Lambrusco - had me coming home with several bottles.

I’m so pleased we booked on the museum tour which included 3 tastings. Our female guide spoke really good English, was so friendly and engaging; no pressurised selling at all. But we came away with a few fabulous & not expensive bottles! Thank you for a wonderful visit.

Booked a visit to this place over the phone. Reached there and it was amazing. Good show/collection of Cars, primitive equipment to make and wine and sell wine. interesting place to be around. Eleonora & Elisa were excellent guide to show around. they have a wine tasting for their Lambrusco and its worth. Their Fruttato Wine was the best and would highly recommend it. they provide some snacks with the wines which are good. The visit to the storage facility for wine different wines from Italy in barrels is also a must and very good. but they do not have provisions to allow tasting of these wines! would definitely suggest to visit and you will surely start loving the Lambrusco wines. and yes they are cheap and very refreshing.

As a very vocal fan of Lambrusco and someone who praises the revival of real Lambrusco in the U.S., I couldn't pass up the opportunity to visit this museum while we were in the area. First, the museum itself is excellent and I found the vast variety of wine artifacts to be fascinating. Our host was very friendly and was immensely patient with our two children who are very "hands on". While I loved all the wine-focused items, I was in awe of the room that showcased Giacobazzi's and Gavioli's work in F1. To see Villeneuve's F312 T4 and Senna's 1994 Williams was an experience. That room alone was worth the visit. Of course, then you can taste the wines and buy plenty to bring home. Five stars all the way for me. I wish we had time to hop over to Sorbara while in the area but to me, going out to Nonantola is worth it for both aficionados of Lambrusco and fans of Formula One.

The tour starts off by going through the history of wine making, however it wasn't this company's history. This company is not as old as nearly 3/4 of the material in the museum.

Overall, they are very knowledgeable and walk you through the history of wine making. You then have the opportunity to see their modern wine making facilities, but this facility isn't their primary, so this is more of a "we crush the grapes then ship it over to our sister facility for bottling/aging/"

They definitely have aging on site though.

Dear Lauren L, thank you for your review! Our guest's comments help us to improve our service to clients and visitors.. and in this case you are helping us to improve the illustration of our winery by our staff! I am part of the family owning Gavioli Vini, may I here clarify some points that must have been mistranslated Gavioli is part of a group of three wineries, all owned and conducted by my family, which is now at the 4th generation of wine producers. this means that we started more than 120 years ago to produce our own wine. Gavioli Antica Cantina has been bought by my family from the Gavioli family, which was still owning the Winery traced back to 1794. The facility that you have visited is dated 1925, successively we have restored it, but in a conservative way. the 80% of the tools and machineries of our museum are our family's heritage: instruments used in the fields by our ancestors. the other 20% has been bought throughout a period of more than 50 years by my father, who cultivates a strong passion for everything related to our history and tradition. Personally, I believe that having added all these tools he has collected through his life, completes our museum giving the opportunity to compare different instruments and techniques, all to the benefit of our visitors. Regarding the production of Gavioli wines, there must have been a lost in translation :) it is true that we have a sister winery, located elsewhere, but it doesen't bottle the wines of Gavioli Antica Cantina. The grapes that we crush are the ones that grow in our vineyards, nearby the winery and in other 2 villages (Sorbara and Bomporto), very close to Nonantola. All the steps of the production are made in the facility you have visited, that means the fermentation, the aging and the bottling. The total production of Gavioli Antica Cantina is quite small, therefore we bottle just a few times per year, when our enologists decide that the wines are ready. In that moment we equip our winery with the necessary instruments to bottle. I hope tho have clarified some foggy points of your visit and I do really apologize if your tour has not been enough satisfying and the explanation was unsufficient. Yours sincerely Angela Giacobazzi

A very nice place that includes a museum of items, used for wine making, as well as a winery itself and a wine shop. Greta was just amazing! She gave us a tour inside and allowed to taste some locally produced wines as well as grape juice. A shame we only had a hand luggage and could buy only one bottle of a great ruby red Lambrusco. Would definitely come back!

Visited this place again for its wines. Though the museum is interesting, specially the cars on display. They have increased the wine collection. They lady across the counter was kind enough to let us taste most of the wines which were very good. Would highly recommend.

Found this site through another visit. Amazing place, the young lady showed us around, hse was very helpful, gorgeous accent...Was amazed (as a Ferrari fan) to see the collection of cars, never realised the company sponsored one of my heroes. SO much more than just wine to look at...At the end of the tour, a quick tasting session. Opened my eyes to Lambrusco, Much more to it than used to....The shop had some gorgeous wine for sale, would have needed a truck to take it home.

We saw this place on Tripadvisor and as my partner and i are both wine and car fans we made sure to stop off en route to Modena.
I'm so glad we did, as although we hadn't booked, we were given a great tour of the winery and museum before tasting their Lambrusco and other wines.
Would definitely recommend stopping off here.

we had a wonderful tour and tasted their very good wine, guided round the museum and the factory by Paul who explained in excellent English all the old time tools and showed us how the wine was made a very enjoyable afternoon.
