Umbria, like Tuscany, has a very good climate for viticulture. Therefore, you can imagine that in the sunny hills of this fertile region are produced excellent wines. There are no less than 11 d.o.c. (Denominazione d’ Origine Controllata) and 2 d.o.c.g. (Denominazione d’Origine Controllata e Garantita) areas. During this wine tour, you will have plenty of opportunity to taste these surprising Umbrian wines, enjoy the lovely Umbrian medieval towns and spectacular sceneries.
The tour starts in Torgiano, a small wine town with an interesting wine-museum. In the Valle Umbra you will visit three wineries in different areas: Torgiano, Assisi and Montefalco. But it is not only wine this tour offers, because you will have also the opportunity to taste the excellent local food and Extra vergine olive oil. Then you leave the green valley and go to Trasimeno Lake, another well-known wine area. You will visit a winery and will have a fish-dinner in a local restaurant.
On request, you can book an extra night for another exciting gourmet experience, like a cooking class or go for a truffle hunt into the woods.
