The tagline for Colaneri Estate Winery is ‘passionately unique’.
The estate is located on a picturesque portion of Niagara-on-the-Lake, north-east of Glendale. The estate building is a massive monument to Italian culture, built like a Roman villa and still being developed. The building complements the strong and robust wines the estate develops.
The biggest strength at Colaneri is in the variety of reds, from syrah to pinot noir and a few blends in between. Whites are more eclectic with European favourites like Gewurztraminer and pinot grigio. There are also dessert-style reds and whites, as well as icewine. Many of these wines are given extra flavour through use of the appassimento method, drying out grapes before production to enhance their qualities.
The winery accepts guests every day of the week except for major public holidays. Tours are limited at this stage due to development of the building and the surrounding grounds, and visitors can still visit some of the production areas and taste the current vintages at the boutique.
