Very interesting with a good selection of wines to taste. Entry to the museum is free.

The museum is a few kilometres out of town and uphill so we took a taxi but walked home. The museum... read more

Arrived for the English speaking tour held each Wednesday at 10.30. Even though we were the only ones there, the tour guide give us a personal tour and could not do enough for us. He was very knowledgeable about the history of the winery, products and processes.
Great value for €5 each for the tour, and all the wines available for tasting.
We would highly recommend a visit to Zeni.
Wines can be shipped back home to UK.

If not driving (well advised approach!) then it is only just over 1 mile up the hill from the centre of Bardolino. They have a great selection of various priced wines in their store.
The sensual 'nose test' and subsequent wine tasting was very enjoyable and the host/guide (Johnathan I think his name is) was very informative and friendly.
The two wines on offer for our tasting session were the;
Amarone della Valpolicella Classico DOC, Vigne Alte
and
Zeni Bardolino Chiaretto Classico Vigne Alte (an utterly superb rose)
Though the Lugana white we tried upstairs was also fabulous!! (free tasting at the bar!)
Thank you Johnathan and Zeni

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 two of these while you're there.

Having been to a number of wineries, the one thing this place lacks is a guided tour for a small fee. We would have happily paid €15/€20 to get walked round the vineyards for an hour. Yet no option to do so.

The wine itself is lovely - my personal favourites are the garganega (white) and the valpolicella ripasse (red).

Give yourself a couple of hours to visit as it's a 15-20 minute walk from Bardolino up a hill.

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.
