The bride and groom can reserve an individual suite or the entire villa. “The Gervasi Villas sit around the lake, providing stunning views of our lavish grounds,” Cardinale says. “Every suite is different, but they each have a comfort- able feel with rich colors, large floor mir- rors, canopy beds and hand-selected décor from Italy.” These amazing accommodations fea- ture rustic fireplaces, heated travertine limestone floors, stucco walls and exposed beam wood ceilings. Amenities include flat-panel TVs, rain showers and luxury soaps from Italy. In the shared com- mon areas, refrigerators are stocked with bottled water, teas and sodas, and guests can enjoy Gervasi Caffè in a shared Keurig coffeemaker. New in 2019, The Casa at Gervasi Vineyard opened. It is a luxury 24-room boutique hotel with a contemporary Tuscan-inspired look. The mission décor includes off-white stucco, rustic beams and wrought iron details. The striking lobby, with classic Italian touches, feature sparkling rose-gold chandeliers and a wall of windows overlooking another lake on the sprawling 55-acre estate. The gorgeous suites, with similar fea- tures and amenities as the Villas, include fireplaces, king-sized beds, heated towel bars and grand showers. Each suite has its own covered veranda patio, which over- looks the serene lake and private court- yard. The Casa also has a fitness center available to all Gervasi guests. Both The Casa and Villa guests enjoy a complimentary Italian-style continental breakfast each morning. To enhance their CEREMONY & RECEPTIONS stay, the bride and groom have the oppor- tunity to order a variety of specialty items, such as floral arrangements, gourmet truf- fles, chocolate-covered strawberries, fruit and cheese platters and, of course, Ger- vasi wines. A variety of in-room massage and yoga services are also available for overnight guests.

Accommodating up to eight guests, the quaint Farmhouse features a living room, dining room, sitting room, study, full kitchen, four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a spacious wrap-around porch. “For a one-of-a-kind bachelorette party, brides have the option of renting the Farmhouse for a fun, relaxing weekend with their girlfriends,” Cardinale says. “They can tour the winery and have a pri- vate chef tableside dinner while sipping on Gervasi wines – it’s the perfect way to celebrate before the big day.” A dream wedding Gervasi Vineyard is a touch of Tuscany in Northeast Ohio.
