Secondly, starting this January 2023, our current tasting room in Scott Twp. will be closed as we transition into our NEW tasting room in the Spring … located on the same property but across the driveway, in a building that is currently under construction. Our new tasting room will be located on the top floor of the building and will boast the same great views and sunsets as our current tasting room…. Including the large deck still overlooking the Endless Mountains.
On the lower level of this new building will be our re-invented, full-service restaurant. The restaurant will be serving Neapolitan- wood fired pizza, house made pastas of all kinds, land and sea options as well, all with a focus on traditional Northern Italian cuisine. This will truly be an amazing addition to the winery as we will be working with chefs from Genoa Italy in addition to our local staff. A BIG congratulations to our very own Dylan Michalek who will be transitioning to the new restaurant and traveling to Italy to train with the new chefs!

Hello friends, family, and loyal customers. I wanted to give everyone an update on some exciting changes happening at the winery!
There’s quite a bit to cover so here it goes!
As some of you might have seen in recent weeks the winery tasting room has been freshened up a bit with some new doors, lighting, and a well needed painting, but there’s more, lots more!
We are making changes to our front deck by adding a 24×36 bump out that will have a reverse gable roof covering the entire portion of the addition along with part of the original deck. We’ve also made some changes to the event space removing my office and a storage closet and with the help of Pauline turning it into a beautiful bridal suite with multiple full length mirrors, a 12’ marble counter with mirrors for your makeup artist and or hair stylist, a sitting area, and access to the back deck. Which brings us to the next project that we’re working on, a beautiful outdoor ceremony site set into the hillside with stone retaining walls, new landscaping, a stamped concrete patio all with direct access from the back deck. These changes are leading up to the bigger announcement… “The Ridge at Maiolatesi’s” which is the new name for the wedding venue.
We’ve partnered with Larry Nicolais of Constantino’s Catering & Events to bring your wedding experience to the next level! Starting in 2023, Constantino’s will be planning, coordinating, and catering all events at The Ridge at Maiolatesi’s.
Opening in March 2023 this exciting venue will encompass all of the original tasting room, front deck, rear porch and event room into an exclusive wedding venue. The couple will be able to enjoy the entire venue for the weekend of their wedding. They will have access to a newly built bridal suite; Ceremony on the expanded and covered sunset deck, overlooking the endless mountains; Cocktails and Hors D’oeuvres in the re-minted tasting room; dinner and dancing in the ballroom; and firepits and cordials on our back porch. The additional ceremony and outdoor patio mentioned above is set into the hillside for a more intimate setting. The Ridge at Maiolatesi’s will be a full service wedding venue offering: Constantino’s famously fabulous wedding fare and service; a full open bar; all services and wedding amenities. Constantino’s will also host showers and small events during the springtime months. We as Maiolatesi Wine Cellars will continue to produce our wines in the current wine cellar, but wait there’s even more!
We are in the final stages of design and will be breaking ground on a new facility on the property that will host our new tasting room and restaurant. We will incorporate a private tasting room into the new design, an expansive covered deck and also a portion that will be uncovered for those of you who love the sun! The restaurant will be separated from the tasting room so we can run each portion of the business independently. With this new design you will be able to enjoy just the tasting room, just the restaurant or both!
As we know more, and have real pictures, we will show you the progress. For now, we’ve attached some pictures of what the new space will look like and some pictures of the new venue’s building progress.
We hope to see you soon. We thank you for the many years of support and look forward to making your experience at the winery better than ever!
Sal, Pauline, and our Family at Maiolatesi Wine Cellars
