ABOUT US

 

Our home is a charming old farmhouse in rural Berlin Center, Ohio, which dates back to 1899. The farm, with fifty two acres, was purchased by Dan and Marianne Mastropietro in 2003.  They later built Mastropietro Winery and sold the farmhouse which is now Bella Fattoria Bed and Breakfast.  

The views of the vineyards and the winery from the house and backyard deck are breathtaking, making it a perfect place for a romantic getaway. Come celebrate an anniversary, birthday, special occasion, or just to get that much needed time alone. You can relax and enjoy the live music and outdoor festivities that are scheduled at the winery throughout the warmer months. In the winter months, unwind inside by the fireplace and enjoy the local artwork on display, or walk down to the winery for  the live music indoors on weekends. For a more peaceful experience, stay with us on Thursday or Sunday and you can bring your own picnic lunch to the winery and sit on the patio, on the grass by the lake, or inside at the Tuscan style tasting room.  And if you are really looking for alone time, join us at the Bed and Breakfast Monday through Wednesday when the winery is closed and you can enjoy the beautiful sunsets, clear starlit skies, and complete peace and tranquility of the country setting.   

In addition to Mastropietro Winery, there are five other wineries within ten miles of Bella Fattoria, as well as numerous other attractions in Mahoning County. We are located between two large public  lakes, Berlin Lake and Lake Milton, where you can enjoy fishing, boating, hiking and skiing.  Noah’s Lost Ark Animal Sanctuary is also close by.  Mill Creek Metro Parks provides hiking at the 262 acre Vickers Nature Preserve and horse shows are available at the 47 acre Buckeye Horse Park just down the road in the next town. There is an 11 mile bike and hike trail only a fifteen minute drive away.  Please see our attractions page for a complete listing.
