Features a taste of Italy
Passion is the heartbeat of Colaneri Estate Winery. A family owned and operated winery that hand harvests only the finest grapes to produce premium VQA award winning wines. The winery is beautifully surrounded with its vineyard on the St. David’s Bench in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Their winemaker, Andrzej Lipinski, captivates that passion by creating full-bodied wines made in the traditional Italian appassimento method 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 c-shaped 31,000-square-foot winery honors the family name and features a taste of Italy. The family designed it in a Romanesque style, reminiscent of the streets of Tuscany. Nestled among the 25 acres of vineyards, it rises amid the vines like a coliseum, majestic and timeless. Floor-to-ceiling arched windows bathe the interior with light and allow for stunning panoramic views of the property and picturesque landscape. From the retail store, patrons can see the production area and all of its exciting processes. Colaneri Estate Winery is a tribute to heritage and the traditions the family holds dear. In fact, each varietal was selected by a family member and corresponding labels were made to represent a distinctive attribute or trait about that person. The wine labels are etched in the style of Leonardo da Vinci, each telling an aspect of the family story.
With Italian names adorning the labels, guests and wine enthusiasts enjoy the wine and get to know the family as each label is unveiled. There is a story behind everything we do including our logo.
