Valentine's Day Pairs Well with the Romance of Villa Bellezza

The romance of Villa Bellezza is the perfect backdrop for your Valentine's Day celebrations! From wine-tastings and authentic country Italian dinner specials to our Sunday brunch, the love of wine and food is in the air. Come celebrate with the people you love--Sweethearts and families will find something they can enjoy together during our holiday celebrations!

Our Popular Heart-shaped Pizzas

Our Valentine's week kicks off on Monday, February 11, with our heart-shaped pizzas, which have become a Villa Bellezza tradition. Our pizzas are a guest favorite, with house-made dough baked to perfection in a wood-fired brick oven. In honor of the holiday, guests can share a heart-shaped pizza with the ones they love as a precursor to exploring the salads, panini, pasta dishes, and special entrees offered on our menu, or as an appetizer or light lunch.

Valentine's Dinner for Two


For those looking to celebrate with a romantic dinner in Italian-inspired surroundings, join us at il Forno Ristorante, Thursday, February 14 through Sunday, February 17, 2019, where beginning each day at 5:00pm Chef Antonio will prepare special Valentine's dinners for two. One of three additional entree options is his Lobster Sulla Tagliatella, Lobster & Pasta (pictured above), a recipe he was taught to prepare by his mother back home in Sardinia! The smells, flavors, wine, and surroundings will take you there.

In honor of the holiday, guests will enjoy a menu that will include a bottle of award-winning Villa Bellezza wine from our special holiday collection, Villa Bellezza Winter Salad, a choice of three additional authentic country-Italian dinner entrees, and a La Bomba Cioccolato (Chocolate Bomb) dessert to share, for just $50/person.

Plus, Wine & Dessert Sampling, Wine Specials and More in the Tasting Room

And we have something special planned for our Tasting Room guests, too. Indulge in a wine and special dessert sampling for two in our Tasting Room. Enjoy our special holiday treat plate with a glass of your favorite Villa Bellezza wine, or allow our tasting room staff to recommend something new for you. Your treats may also be enjoyed as a dessert and wine pairing as part of your wine tasting--Our tasting room staff can suggest our winemakers' recommendations for each dessert. And watch for specials on select Villa Bellezza wines throughout the weekend, too!

Delicious and Family-Friendly ~ Valentine's Weekend Sunday Brunch


For a family-friendly celebration, our Valentine's Weekend Sunday Brunch would be an ideal way to celebrate the holiday. Our Sunday brunches have been attracting quite a following! Featuring a selection of country egg dishes and breakfast meats, served with potatoes and roasted vegetables from our brick oven, assorted breads, and a selection of pizzas, everyone finds something they love! Chef Antonio loves to surprise our guests with his authentic specialties such as cannoli, brioche, sweet desserts, and more! A Mimosa (OJ and Sparkling Wine) pairs wonderfully with your meal, or allow one of our staff to recommend a Villa Bellezza wine to complement your your tastes! For brunch, reservations are always welcome--call us at 715.442.2424 ext. 3. Our suggestion would be to combine your brunch-time visit with a wine tasting in our tasting room. We can't think of a better way to enjoy a Sunday!

During your visit, take a moment to explore our grounds or take a self-guided tour through our Great Hall. Keep your eyes and ears open, and fingers crossed--if you're lucky you might witness a wedding proposal. That's Amore!
