Located just east of Ellsworth, WI sits a beautiful property with amazing scenery to gaze at while you’re enjoying a plethora of wine options, some amazing Italian cuisine and beer for those who aren’t in to the grape thing, like me. With something for everyone, this is a place even the family can enjoy. Plenty of space for blankets and family time and letting the kiddos run, bag toss, yard yahtzee, 2 fire pits going, cheese and crackers, live acoustic music, rides on the tractor down to Brush Creek to learn some history about the property, walking trails and more.
We enjoyed some simple, but delicious bread and olive oil with parmesan cheese blend, reviewed the menu and continued to enjoy the scenery and company. My mom decided on the Portabella Mushroom Ravioli, my dad went for the Garlic Shrimp Linguini, my sweetie was eyeing up the Pesto Caprese, I couldn’t say no to the Spicy Shrimp and Andouille Linguini and our little guy was all about the pizza.
Let’s get my little guys pizza out of the way. Pretty much the best tasting little’s pizza your youngster will ever enjoy and they don’t even know it, yet. It tasted freshly made, because it was with quality ingredients. Our little guys’ pizza was a pepperoni and even I wanted to eat it.
On to the selections by the ‘rents. While I didn’t taste these plates, they smelled good and definitely looked enjoyable. My mom’s Ravioli, prepared with leeks, mushrooms, dried cherries and spinach in a vodka cream sauce, then finished with white truffle oil. Mmmm, truffle oil! My dad’s linguini, prepared with sautéed shrimp in a garlic white butter sauce with mushrooms, peppers, spinach, onions, tomatoes and topped with parmesan cheese. I mentioned to my dad, that it looked like a lighter healthier meal plate than the rest of us and it was gone!
