At Taking Time for Tea, we would like to focus on providing you with a peaceful setting while you relax and enjoy the loveliness of sipping tea and eating delectables served on vintage bone china and crystal, fine linens and lace. We plan to pamper you and refill you with everything you look at, eat and experience. If you and your group are the kind of people who appreciate the finer things in life; or you are looking for a special experience together, a day set aside, come and be pampered for a little while so that you can go back to your lives refreshed and refilled. This is a heavenly place where cherished memories are made.

"This experience was like lotion for my cracked and dried out soul."

About us

Our family moved to Western Wisconsin from the St. Paul area in 2000. After being born and raised in St. Paul myself, I met my husband Paul who was from Cambridge, MN. He helped me to fall in love with the beauty of the country and after 15 years of marriage living in Minnesota, we made the big change and built our home in the rolling hills of Western Wisconsin ~ about an hour from the Twin Cities.

As Paul had been ~ and still is in the construction field as a tile installer (Zimmerman Tile Installers), we desired to build our own home. Our idea was to establish a country estate and vineyard as he also had been making wine for many years.

We have spent the last 19 years creating a beautiful and tranquil feeling to our property by creating gardens with peaceful settings in which to relax and reflect. We have also grown a large vineyard called Bella Dona Vineyard near the meadows at the foot of our majestic hills.

After all three of our daughters got married in 2 1/2 years, our son Jordan, Paul and I wondered "What now?" We have decided we would like to open our home and property to others to come and experience not only the heavenly beauty, but the peace and tranquility of the land God has so blessed us with here and in the surrounding country side leading to our home.

We would like to donate a portion of the proceeds to feeding the hungry. Thank you for being a part of making this possible.

God's Blessings,

Rita Zimmerman
