Villa Bellezza Winery

The Villa

Our Villa is the largest building in our small Italian village. It is entered through a large foyer from either the Piazza Bellezza or from the west terrace. The foyer features a modern glass chandelier and wooden beams supporting the floor above. The Villa forms two sides of the Piazza Bellezza and is surrounded by vines on three sides.

The Sala Grande, la Saletta, la Torre dei Sognatori, and the apartmento are all located in the Villa.

Villa Bellezza Wedding Hall Venue

Sala Grande / The Great Hall

This 4,000 square foot 300+ person capacity room has a two-story vaulted ceiling warmed by heavy wooden trusses spanning the space above. A tower, with a sweeping stairway, leads to another large interior balcony. Seven picturesque arches running the length of the balcony make for a romantic entrance for a wedding couple, the whole wedding party or a dramatic entrance for a speaker, guest of honor or band.

La Saleta / Reception Hall

La Saletta, the stone building that adjoins the tower, is designed for your social hour. This 1,500 square foot space is a two story space with warm wooden trusses above, modern Italian pendant lighting and a striking French antique bar setting an elegant stage for service. Your guests will continue exploring and find their way to La Saleta’s second story balcony gallery overlooking the space. Or guests will be drawn outside to the Piazza. Massive wooden double doors from La Saleta open directly to the fountain on the piazza.

The Villa main foyer, with its Murano Italian chandelier, adjoins La Saleta for expanded social hour space. To add outdoor space during your social hour, a wall of arched doors open to your own, private covered courtyard, steps away from our vines.

A raised stage at one end provides a perfect view for everyone to see a wedding ceremony or a guest speaker for another event. Greet your guests at a smaller entrance pavilion just outside the vineyards.  Your guests will follow a long brick walkway through the vines to their seats. Tiled restrooms are located inside the pavilion for your guests’ convenience. This space is used for wedding ceremonies, intimate weddings, and business meetings.
