The very well preserved equipment are a joy to behold at this small but free museum. There was free tasting of some of their wines with some of the better ones available for a small fee. The shop had good choice of their range of wines and if we'd had a car with us we'd definitely have bought some. There... More

A small museum but just enough for an overview of the history of wine making in the area and the process. We walked form Bardolino and it is uphill on the way but took about 30-40 minutes so not too arduous. Very friendly staff and free wine tasting of over 10 wines. More special ones cost a small fee to... More

Just a short taxi ride (8 euros) outside Bardolino in the hills. A very interesting museum of the methods and old equipment, they do guided tours but we missed it (ring for times) Then a free wine tasting with an option to pay for premium wines. A well stocked outlet for the local wines, we had the pleasure of meeting... More

This is a wonderful winery located only a few kilometers from Bardolino. They feature some of the best Amaroni wine in the region. The wine museum is very facinating. They have a dozen or so wines for free tasting and you can pay for the better tastings.

The museum is small and interesting. Its not "a must see" when visiting Lake Garda and its more a shop than a museum. BUT you get to taste a lot of different local wines for free. The museum is also free so this is a great shop where you get some historical input.15- 30 minutes in the museum is enough.... More

Well worth the walk from Bardolino, especially if you are a wine lover. You can have a look around the smallish museum, but then you can go into the shop/tasting area. There are 14 different wines you can taste, all for free! OK, so you might like some and decide to buy a few bottles, but that's all good.

Museum bit is quite interesting (but won't take more than an hour). We were unlucky that the bottling line wasn't running. Tasting/buying area is ok, but they charge for small tasting glasses, even if you then buy some of the bottles - a bit disappointing in my view. Might be better if you do one of the organised tours -... More

It's a nice place. Good service and excellent wine. Some you taste for free and the more exspensive you pay 3 euro to taste but you will get them back if you buy the wine. Also the museum and the history of the wineyard is nice to see.

Walking from Bardolino town its up hill but worth it. A lovely wine meusum which demonstrates the manufacturer and history of the wine. Free tasting of the wine. Went back down the hill happy with my purchase of a lovely red wine.
