  • The guided tour begins at 5.00 pm with a tour of the cellar, followed by a visit to the vineyards.

A stone’s throw from Lake Garda, in a nineteenth-century courtyard frozen in time, Chiara and Daniele are waiting for you to make you live a moment of tranquility surrounded by greenery. If you want to enjoy a nice relaxed moment, with healthy organic Bardolino, selected local or homemade products and beautiful music, in a unique context like Villa Calicantus, this Ape-Tasting is for you.

Our wine tastings are not simple tastings: they are a moment of approach to the world of wine to understand all its various nuances.
We will tell you how the different wines are made, the history of Bardolino wine and that of our cellar. If you are also interested in the guided tour, Daniele, owner and winemaker of Villa Calicantus, will accompany you first to the cellar and then to the vineyards to explain how we work organically / biodynamically at Villa Calicantus.

Villa Calicantus is a small reality and therefore we offer a few selected products. The products served during the tastings are only those indicated in the menu above. Those who do not eat meat or dairy products can ask to have the other products on the menu several times or to have a price reduced for the products not consumed by the tasting price. For gluten intolerant people, we replace our bread with organic corn or rice waffles. We kindly ask you to do this at the time of booking so that we can organize ourselves better.

Amazing wine tour and tasting!

We attended the special tour/tasting on a Saturday night in September during their harvest. The winemaker led the group on a tour of the whole winery, including into the vines where there is a beautiful view of the lake. We then did a tasting outside on the patio. Each wine is paired with food. Come hungry because you get ALOT of great food. One of the highlights of our trip to Italy. Highly recommend a visit to this winery to support a small winery, learn about Bardolino wines and get a great meal.

Great wines and food

We came for a wine tasting in September on a Saturday evening. The setting is beautiful and the owners are both very warm and friendly. The wines and food were delicious and the tour of the vineyard gave some great views across the countryside and over Lake Garda. We finished off by walking back down into Bardolino which took about an hour and had some great views over the Lake on the way down.

Villa Calicantus is a must visit!

We visited Villa Calicantus during our trip to Bardolino and it really was a highlight of our stay. My husband and I came across the vineyard as a place to visit after seeing TripAdvisor reviews and we were so pleased we did! We opted for the total tasting tour which was an incredible experience learning about how they produce biodynamic wine and trying 4 of their delicious wines. Each wine was paired with either homemade or local food which really complimented the wine. The wine tastings and vineyard tour was also really reasonable and would recommend that it is definitely worth going for the total tasting. Daniele the owner is also so passionate about wine making which made it a truly memorable experience. Thank you, Villa Calicantus! Honestly, it’s a must visit during your Bardolino stay!

We absolutely loved this place when we visited back in 2015, so we thought we'd come back, and bring some friends. Always a risk doing that but we were not disappointed! The wine has gone from strength to strength and is even better now than before. Daniele and Chiara are really knowledgable and welcoming, and just put on a great afternoon with great wine and gorgeous local foods to try. They were also really helpful with organising transport back into the town. Highly recommended.
