Manaresi wine estate lies on the top of Bella Vista hill, 12 km south west from Bologna, in the heart of Colli Bolognesi DOCG wine district. The 11 hectares vineyards go round the estate centre at 270 degrees, facing all the plain from Bologna to Modena. The view rises above up to the Alps on crystal clear days. The winery has been named after Paolo Manaresi (1908-1991), prominent painter and etcher in the last century. The estate is personally run by Donatella Agostoni- Manaresi (Paolo Manaresi's grandaughter) and Fabio Bottonelli, by respecting the land and seeking the right balance. The soil is mainly clay with a little of gravel, with historical vocation for wine growing since the middle-age. The winery is furnished with up to date enological machinery and devices able to respect grapes. It lies underground on the lower level of an old Bolognese rural complex, whose 100 years old part has not been changed. All hand picked in small crates, grapes are very softly worked, all separate day by day, with a special care for quality, through low impact enological processes. Open at all times for direct sale. For guided tours and tastings, please write or call in advance (in this case a small fee is charged).

Thank you very much, very kind of you. We really appreciated your review. We are a (relatively) small winery, but we try to be 'ambassadors' of the whole region from all point of views

My wife and I had booked a visit to this small vineyard only to find that the Pope was visiting Bologna and taxis were difficult to find. When we arrived we also found that we were the only visitors. We were given an excellent tour...More

Sunset over the Bologna hills, wonderful wines, gracious hosts- what more could one want? A charming small vineyard worth a visit. Note if you are taking a taxi from Bologna, try to arrange one for the return trip. Thank you, Fabio, for the ride home!

Called for an appointment on the same day and got a very nice, personalized tour of the small winery which is in a very beautiful location. We tasted the wine and liked it a lot, specially the sparkling Pignoletto.

We had such a lovely time at the vineyard, tasting the wines. The hospitality shown to us was exceptionally. The history of the labels and the tasting sessions were the best. We would love to visit again and spend some time with the family. Well...More
