Colaneri is a new family-owned and operated winery that hand-harvests the finest grapes to produce premium VQA award-winning wines from its surrounding vineyards. Most of the wines are made with the traditional Italian appassimento style of drying grapes, including a large portfolio of red, white and dessert wines. A new series has been introduced, made in the “recioto” style of making dessert wines. The winery is built in the Romanesque style featuring a captivating panoramic view of the vineyard and escarpment atop the St. David’s Bench appellation. The wine tasting bar overlooks the production area, allowing visitors to see the process. We, La famiglia Colaneri, are always on hand to share the experience and the passion that went into the making of our wines and our winery.

We are two couples who had such an enjoyable time tasting some of Niagara's best wines as we were informed about this wonderful family run winery. Wally poured us our tastings as he explained how the wine was made, the story behind each wine label and so much more. Wally surely made our time at Colaneri so much fun and... More

Last weekend, my husband and I stopped at Colaneri with my Nana for an impromptu wine tasting. We had never been here before and didn't even know that it existed, but as we drove by, we couldn't help but stop in. This place is beautiful and looks like a true castle!! We went inside for a wine tasting, and right... More

This place is spectacular. It looks like a giant castle. If you think it's magnificent, wait for the next few years when the fountain is build. We tasted 5 different wines and they we're all so good. We bought 2 caisses! The staff is very well knowledgeable and very friendly. The pizza they make is also amazing. I wish they... More

We absolutely loved our visit to the Winery. The particular tour we selected apparently did not have a tour of the facility or vineyards, just a tasting. Out hostess was Debbie. She was phenomenal! Her extensive knowledge of the winery's product made our visit that much more enjoyable. We had a tasting of 5 wines. My wife and I prefer... More

We just happened to pass this on our way to another winery. Seeing the Tuscan-style villa, we just had to stop. Not we're we glad we did. Of the 8 wineries we visited during our stay, this was our favorite. We like reds and their's were by far and away the best we tasted.

We tried a few different wineries, and Colaneri was by far the best one. We absolutely loved it. Their wines are excellent. Staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. The villa itself is sitting in the middle of a huge vineyard which makes it very picturesque. They offer wine tasting. You get to pick 5 wines. They also have ice wine... More

I live in Niagara and frequent a number of winery's every summer with my husband. I was not impressed at all by this winery in particular. The staff was not very welcoming and were not very well informed on the variety of wines and style of making the wine. While my husband and I were doing our tasting there were... More

Good Afternoon Heather, First of all thank you for visiting our winery, we sincerely appreciate you considering a stop at our facility. I, as well as the rest of my family, are truly disheartened and saddened to see this review. I cannot express my apologies enough about you feeling this way after leaving our home.

Driving up to the Colaneri estate I immediately was transported to Tuscany or Piemonte. What a recreation. The wines were very good. $10 for 5 tastings with a $5 extra charge for the premium options. Would love to see the premium fee waived in the future although still a fantastic value. This would be a great setting for a wedding.... More
