Memorial Day Weekend
Celebrating the “Unofficial” Start of Summer!

VB-Memorial-Day-Grilling-web-sq.pngMemorial Day weekend is often referred to as the 'unofficial' start of summer--official or unofficial, after the winter we’ve had we'll take it! At Villa Bellezza our tasting room and il Forno Ristorante will be open all weekend, including the holiday.

On Memorial Day we’ll be following tradition by pulling out the grill—only we’ll be grilling on the Piazza instead of the patio! Come celebrate the longer days and sunshine with us and enjoy a special selection of grilled spiedini (foods skewered on a stick) along with your favorite Villa Bellezza wines.

Cooking School at Villa Bellezza

Join us for a Culinary Visit to the 'Italian Lakes'
Wednesday, June 19, 2019  ~ 6:00-8:30pm

VB-Web-Event-Coooking-School-2.pngGet ready to experience the wine and food of Villa Bellezza in a whole new way! We invite you to join us on a culinary tour of Italy at our new Education Center. Through a series of cooking classes, you’ll discover the food and wine of the region with Villa Bellezza Chef, Antonio Cecconi, as your guide and instructor.

During this session you’ll make a culinary visit to one of Chef Antonio's favorite regions in Italy, the Italian Lakes.  Located in the north of Italy, the area has many similarities to the Mississippi River Valley and our own Lake Pepin. The region boasts beautiful scenic lakes and the best wines and wineries in Italy!

Chef Antonio invites you to join him on this special food tour—surrounded by the food, wines, and architecture of Villa Bellezza, you’ll feel as though you’re actually there! And because great food tastes even better when accompanied by great wine, you’ll enjoy food and wine pairings throughout the session.

Space for this cooking class is limited—reserve your spot now! Learn more here.
