Degustazioni di vino a Bardolino Lago di Garda Villa Calicantus
Wine Tastings In Bardolino, Lake Garda

Our viticulture is of high quality: all our hard work in the vineyard is focused on the well-being and balance of the vines, to obtain grapes capable of producing long-lasting and complex wines. Respect for the vine and the soil, uncompromising work in the vineyard, and long aging in the cellar allow us to produce unique wines that tell the story of the territory, the grape varieties, and the vintage from which they come. Our goal is to put Bardolino back on the map of great Italian wines, through a rediscovery of the true, forgotten identity of a wine with immense potential.

Villa Calicantus is a small biodynamic winery in Calmasino, in the heart of Bardolino Classico, just a stone’s throw from the southeastern shore of Lake Garda. We are Chiara and Daniele Delaini: we work 8 hectares of vineyards and produce between 30,000 and 40,000 bottles annually, depending on the climatic conditions of the vintage. Our vineyards are located on three of the best hills of Bardolino, where, not far from Lake Garda, we cultivate the native Verona grapes, Corvina, Rondinella, and Molinara, to produce 5 wines that aim to be 5 authentic and unique expressions of these grapes and their terroir.

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.

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.
