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.

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.

A tasting venue more than a museum but noe the worse for that!
Dec 2019
Marketed as a museum this is a tasting and selling venue (of course). The experience is enhanced by the 'museum' elements. But the real stars are the wines which live up to the rest of the experience.

Heaven for the wine lovers
Nov 2019 • Friends
I am so pleased I hav managed to visit Cantina Zeni, what a fantastic place.
The museum is nice and informative, the best part of it, of course was the wine tasting! Loved the Cruino and Amarone!!!
Make sure you go down to see the BOTTAIA, is very impressive a well looked after (open from april to /until it gets too cold for visitors). Make a booking and order some cheese and meats to go with your wine. You will love it all.
Very knowledgeable members of staff, only wish I could have spent more time there but I will certainly go back for more.
Highly recommended.

Brilliant highlight of our stay at Lake Garda
Oct 2019
We got to know Cantina Zeni last year for the first time and already then we stopped by three times during our stay. This year history repeated and we spent three phantastic afternoons with Martina, Alessia, Chiara and Rado in the wine cellar of Cantina Zeni. We highly recommend to take sufficient time and enjoy the wonderful Zeni wines in the wine cellar. We have learnt very much about the local wines and have been treated extremely nice. To a certain extent this was potentially possible as the season neared the end and it was not too crowded. It is highly recommended to clarify, if a reservation is required. We are very much looking forward to see our Zeni friends again next year!

Nice place
Sep 2019
The museum was small but had some interesting exhibits & the wine tasting was free to try the least expensive ones which were quite decent....if you wanted to try the better ones you could select any & just pay per glass which we found a good way to sample the more expensive ones. There was a great range to buy & take away as well as other products.

Holiday highlight!
Sep 2019
We visited twice! We called in one morning and wandered round the museum and tasted some of the 13 free wines. We then paid to taste 3 Amarone wines which were delicious. The real highlight was being able to taste a beautiful wine that is only available to try for 10 days every 2 years, talk about good timing! Realising that there was an English speaking tour on Wednesdays we returned. The guide was so interesting and the old cellar is a fabulous venue to sit and drink fine wine. Great views of Bardolino from their new terrace.

Interesting museum of wine production
Jul 2019 • Couples
Free entry, so definitely worth a visit if staying in the surrounding area, and have an interest in wine. The museum itself was very interesting with some fascinating exhibits of old presses and machinery used on the property throughout its history. It’s also got an ancient vine dating back over a hundred years. The wine tasting itself was a little underwhelming. All of the wines free to taste were understandably of lower quality. Sadly the tasting itself is self service via a wine decanting machine, so there is no proper tuition or interaction unless you enquire yourself. However, if you are willing to pay per glass to try the higher quality wines, as we did, you will get a much better and thorough explanation of each wine you taste. We tried a few different wines, and absolutely loved their Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Barriques 2013. Which we bought home with us without hesitation. (For tasting notes: expect a very heavy full bodied Amarone, with incredible spice and dry fruit notes, classic of a high quality Amarone with a lot of finesse and ageing potential).

Highlight of our visit
Aug 2019 • Couples
This is an amazing place to visit. On a Wednesday, there is an English speaking tour of the museum and wine tasting at 10.30am (August 2019). It costs €5 each and the guide was both extremely knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. For your entry price, you get a tour, a glass of Chiaretto and then a free tasting upstairs of a few different whites from Soave to Lugana and reds from Bardolino to Valpolicella. If you want to, you can pay between €3-4 for a glass of Amarone which was stunning. All the wines are in the shop to purchase at a reasonable price. Overall, one of the best things we did in Bardolino and one we would highly recommend. Just be aware that if you are walking from Bardolino, allow time to walk up the gentle hill to the museum. The plus side is that it is downhill on the way back!

We loved the winetasting
Aug 2019 • Couples
We went straight down the stairs for the winetasting. Special setting surrounded by wine barrels. Our guides were very friendly and helpfull in selecting the right package for the tasting. English was spoken fluently and they really know what they are talking about. Go there and enjoy the beautiful wines!
