Una Bella Giornata

Central Valley



Tucked into the lovely northern California coastal valley just three hours from San Francisco lies a Tuscan-style retreat that exudes old-world charm. Una Bella Giornata at Cardella Winery offers hundreds of acres of vines to whisper their congratulations as you allow the ambience of Italy and the simplicity of the surroundings to envelop you. Guests arrive in style and are charmed by cobblestone driveways and sidewalks. Towering trees filter sunlight into the courtyard, creating romantic ambience. Time stands still as you say your vows in front of the people you love most. After a stunning ceremony, you and your guests will sample wines and enjoy delicious appetizers around an alluring pond with romantic light sparkling off the water. Rising above the courtyard is an impressive Tuscan-style house, creating a truly fairy tale-like feel to the celebration. A sprawling tent on the lawn provides a beautiful space for your reception. Your guests will dine and dance under the stars as they enjoy true Italian hospitality while you steal a newlywed’s kiss.
