Overview

The Zeni winery is located on the first hill beside the city center of Bardolino. From 1870 the Zeni Families have been dedicated in to the growing of the local vines and in to the production of the veronese classical wines. This wines are: Bardolino, Custoza, Lugana, Soave and Valpolicella, where inside the classical area the family has one more winery. From 1991 inside the winery in Bardolino is located the Wine Museum, a collection and proof of the local and ancient veronese wine tradition. The Wine Museum and adjacent Vinoteca are free entry for all individual visitors. For groups of 10 or more people the reservation is required. For both individual visitors and groups we required the reservation also for the visit of the entire winery. The Zeni winery is proud to present GO the olfactory gallery, a new eno-sensory tasting, which is the first of its kind in Italy.

Good museum and excellent free wine samples. Could be easily improved with even some basic tasting notes for the wine samples provided (nothing given except the name). The more complex wines could be tasted for a small cost (€2-€8 a glass). Worth trying one or...More

Great place not only to buy good wine but also great vinegar balsamico (regular, 10 years old or even 14). Very tasty. I recommend vinegar pearls as well. Very swett and sour.
