Colaneri is a new family-owned and operated winery that hand-harvests the finest grapes to produce premium VQA award-winning wines from its surrounding vineyards. Most of the wines are made with the traditional Italian appassimento style of drying grapes, including a large portfolio of red, white and dessert wines. A new series has been introduced, made in the “recioto” style of making dessert wines. The winery is built in the Romanesque style featuring a captivating panoramic view of the vineyard and escarpment atop the St. David’s Bench appellation. The wine tasting bar overlooks the production area, allowing visitors to see the process. We, La famiglia Colaneri, are always on hand to share the experience and the passion that went into the making of our wines and our winery.

We randomly visited the winery a year ago and enjoyed a tasting in the tasting room. It was such a positive experience (they take their time and talk to you about their wines, which we love!) that we decided to book a private tasting for our anniversary (make sure to book a week in advance). The table was beautifully set... More

Besides the amazing Italian architecture and grounds the staff is truly amazing! We have been coming to Colaneri since they opened and this family run business has always been friendly, charming and full of culture. The wines are incredible and true to the Italian heritage! You need to try their wood over pizza in the summer and experience cigar under... More

When you are driving up the driveway to this monstrosity of a winery, it's very overwhelming. Looks like the White House or something. Absolutely gorgeous outside! Inside is not finished so I will not comment much on that. They did have a nice selection of wines and a good tasting. I believe we had 3 wine tastings each. Very beautiful... More

Despite the amazing Tuscan looking villa, we had the unfortunate experience of being literally badgered by a staff member as we were walking from the parking lot toward the villa. My mother, a 79 year old lady, had the audacity to grab a small cluster of 5-7 grapes from the closest vine and was handing out to her lady friend... More

My friend has a membership with this winery so we were able to have a free wine tasting. The clerk was very nice and knowledgeable. And the wines are extremely good. I am so happy we stopped in. I did leave with a couple of very nice bottles too.

This might be one of the most beautiful wine tiers I have been to! Very clean and elegant. The staff had great recommendations and were very helpful! Tastings are free with a wine purchase!

Colaneri is a unique experience in Niagara ... feels like you are in the wine regions of Italy while visiting this winery. Having now visited twice, the winery is still not completely fished, but will most certainly be beautiful once it is completed. Wines are a little on the pricey end for the area, although many are made using different... More

Excellent wine and great service. The only thing to make it better would have been if the patio was open to enjoy a bottle there. The man who did the tasting was very knowledgeable in explaining the wines. We loved learning about the wine and how it's made.

Visited this winery, during the long weekend, and i must say WOW !!!!. I felt like i was in Italy, the view, the building and the wines were absolutely great, specially the girl who served us, took the time to explain each label on the bottles we tasted, the wines. Comparing to the other wineries, the wines were a little... More

But disappointing upon entering. It appears that there would be many shops, restaurants, cafes, wine tasting areas etc...but is just one large concrete building on the inside with two tasting rooms. Did even stay for samples as was disappointed since they did not have any food as I believe it said on their website.
