   Twenty-five employees will stay in a 500-year old villa, sample wine, visit a secret field of truffles and cook in Italian restaurants.
  
   The three restaurant chain, coffee company and catering company operates in Factoria, Tukwila and Canyon Park in Bothell.
  
   The employees will fly into Venice and then on to Cesenatico, a small resort city on the Northern Adriatic coast. They will stay in a six bedroom villa with two kitchens and just steps from the Adriadic Sea.
