Anyone who can sing in Italian is most welcome to do so :-)

Bella Vista Ranch, Wimberley.

We have enjoyed visiting Bella Vista in the past. We will arrive around 11:00am. The ranch is patterned after an Italian olive farm in Italy. More than 1,000 olive trees are growing on 100+ acres.

For a fee of $12, we will learn about olive oil production in Texas. The presentation, by the ranch owner, is informative and humorous. Then we will tour the olive production plant and olive groves. As our appetites are stimulated, we will partake in tastings of a variety of olive oils and bread plus tastings of wine, fruit preserves, tappenades, vinegars, etc.. A retail store is available with the ranch products and we encourage your browsing. Two door prizes will be awarded.

Trattoria Lisina Restaurant

This will be our third visit and we will have a luncheon at 1:30pm. We will be seated on the veranda of the main restaurant.

The fee for the luncheon is $32, includes tax and gratuity. Meal includes an appetizer, continuous fresh baked bread and butter, choice of two pasta dishes, dessert and your choice of coffee, tea or soft drinks. A cash wine bar will be available also, Two door prizes will be awarded. After dinner you are encouraged to stroll the grounds and also visit the Duchman Winery. They have a fine selection of wines at various prices.

We need at least 40 people for lunch to meet the minimum $$$ required. The chapter will have to pay for any shortfall.
