Villa Antonio Winery
Villa Antonio Winery is a small, family-operated winery in Jefferson County, less than 45 minutes south of downtown St. Louis. The winery is situated in the scenic Sandy Valley area and has a large patio and new covered pavilion adjoining our historic 1880s which serves as our tasting room. The new pavilion provides a cool area to enjoy wine and food complements with vineyard and lakeside views.
Villa Antonio Winery is the only winery in Missouri producing Italian style wines. Our wines range from dry to semi-sweet and are made from French-American hybrid grapes grown on the property. Currently the winery produces nine wines: Whites: Cayuga White, Seyval Blanc, Chardonel and Goccia d’Oro; Reds: Norton, Chambourcin, Vino Rosa, Rosso Valentino and Rosetto.
The winery is owned and operated by the Polesel family. Antonio Polesel learned the art of wine-making from his father in the Veneto region of northern Italy.
Our Italian heritage is also reflected in our fine hand made foods. We offer a menu of antipasto plates, fruit and cheese plates, Salciccia sandwiches, Toasted Ravioli, Cheese Garlic Bread, Italian Bread with dipping sauce, and cookie plates. We also host special gourmet seven course meals nearly every Saturday night by reservation only.
