Why Your Next Event Should Be In Italy (... Er, Kentucky)

Can you imagine getting married in the Italian countryside? You know, surrounded by vineyards and luscious, green hills? It's something most of us can only dream of because, let's face it... most of us can't just go get married in Italy.

Maybe it doesn't have to be some unattainable fantasy.

Because, get this, there's somewhere right off of I-75 where you can find that Italian countryside scenery you've been pining for. That somewhere is called Brianza Gardens and Winery. And it's somewhere you should definitely consider for your next event/ weekend excursion.

Where does the name Brianza come from?

Brianza is a province in Italy known for its beautiful hills and rich, fertile land.

So what kind of services do they offer at Brianza Gardens and Winery?

Wedding ceremonies and/or receptions. Family reunions. Birthday parties. ... You name it.

And if you happen to be in the market for a romantic getaway, they also have a cottage and a winemaker suite available for rent.

The name includes "winery" -- what's that all about?

You know we can't forget the wine! The property (which sprawls across 17 gorgeous acres) offers vineyard tours and, of course, wine tastings. Owner Tony Parnigoni is the chief wine maker and takes care of the vineyards and grounds with the help of his family.
