Taste a large selection of different wines including Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, Pinot noir, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Grigio, and numerous other desert and specialty wines. The winery accepts guests every day of the week, except for major public holidays.

  • Colaneri as is own unique feel of old country. As soon as you enter the building your noze get filled by the aromas of freshly open wine bottles. The staffs welcome you with smiles and give you time to explore all the gift shop. The staffs are so knowledgeable and passionate about the wines and the production. I felted like I should of take some notes during our wine tasting to be able to recreate the experience half as good when entertaining my guess at home. The wines at Colaneri are extraordinary and in a completely higher level then all the other winery of the region. The perfumes and tastes of every samples are so rich and delicious you will wish you had one more sip.
  • Came with a group of 22 to this winery on 3/4/2018 after visiting several other wineries during the day. I ran ahead of the group to let the winery staff know as soon as possible that there were 22 of us. I found this effective in the other (smaller) wineries we visited during the day. When I spoke to a "younger" (black hair, greased back) fellow at the bar he turned to me and said "next time you better call" in an extremely rude tone. I made a remark back in retaliation and said "Ok - but this is not next time and we need to know if we will have service now" the staff member I mentioned above then looked me in the eyes and said "you are RUDE" !!!! I couldn't believe this and I even tried to apologize and suggest that we may have had a misunderstanding. To be honest, it was clear this man is just MISERABLE HUMAN. Anyway.. the winery owner and other staff members (shout out to Wally) saw the entire interaction and I'm assuming told him to do the bar back stuff for our group and not interact with us after that. It was clear that HE did something wrong as all other staff went above and beyond after in some attempt to salvage the most awkward encounter with a client that day. Despite this disgruntled employee, the service was great and I even bought wine, but I also promised to share my experience afterwards, so here it is. Moral of the story - if you wanted to be treated with any type of respect when entering into this winery with a group "call ahead"
  • Experience a taste of little Italy! Unbelievable service, delicious wines and amazing atmosphere. If you're seeking the perfect afternoon setting, Colaneri Winery is your best bet in Niagara! Thanks for always putting a smile on my face
  • We had an amazing wine tasting at Colaneri! Wally knew everything there is to know about the wines. And of course we took a bottle with was. Also the building is beautiful, definitely worth the visit!
  • Great Italian wine. Very knowledgeable staff. Excellent atmosphere in an beautifully designed rustic building.
