WINE-TASTING IN UMBRIA & WINE-TASTING LESSON

 

Umbria and Tuscany offer a good quality of grapes, favoured by the favourable climatic and soil conditions of the region.  Many excellent wines come from these regions, like the Grechetto, wine of ancient traditions, lauded by Pliny the Elder, the Rosso of Montfalco, a purple coloured wine with a harmonious and velvety flavour, the Sagrantino Passito, of ruby red colour and delicate aroma, the Orvieto Classico, the white wine which was already famous in Etruscan times, the Vino Nobile of Montepulciano and of course Chianti.

 

 


 

 

Visiting the wine cellars of an organic  wine grower near Assisi:

 

 For years now the owner of the vineyards has been tending the earth with love and respect according to the family wine- and olive oil-making traditions. Synthetic chemicals, pesticides and  herbicides are not used at all and all the grapes are the fruit of their own vines. Skilful experimentation and innovation of the products have brought the family to such a high level of wine making that they have won various regional and national prizes over the years.
