VILLA BELLEZZA & iL FORNO RISTORANTE
2015 Midwestern Winery of the Year
Winemaker Challenge International Wine Competition
Our classical Mediterranean style winery, restaurant and event complex welcomes visitors daily.
Located in Pepin, WI, we're just a short day-trip from most metro locations,
yet you'll feel as though you have been transported a world away!
The name – Bellezza, the Italian word for beauty – is inspired by the stunning river bluff drive
to the winery along the Mississippi’s historic Great River Road. The complex was designed in a Mediterranean style
with several stucco and stone buildings, including a country Italian restaurant and 250+ person event center,
surrounding a central piazza — much like in a town square somewhere in Italy.
We're open 7 days a week all year round, except for some holidays (see our website for hours).
Reservations are not required, however, if you have a large group (14 or more),
please call ahead to let us know that you are coming.
We invite you for a wine and food experience... Come explore our selection of award-winning wines,
all crafted on-site with locally grown grapes, many grown in our own vineyards.
Then enjoy country Italian fare at il Forno Ristorante. The menu features salads, panini, pasta dishes, wood-fired pizzas
(made with house-made dough), and a special selection of entrees.
Your favorite Villa Bellezza wines available by the glass or bottle
(and at the same price as our Tasting Room).
Vegetarian and gluten-free options also available. All dishes are available to go. No reservations required.
Visitors are welcome to enjoy the casual coziness of the Tasting Room,
partake in food and drink on the Piazza by the fountain, or relax with a bottle of wine
and Italian country cooking in the restaurant,
as the beauty of the bluffs surround you!
