Posted on nov 23, 2012

Spend a day in the Umbrian countryside visiting Orvieto and an artisan Wine Estate

In Umbria we will visit Orvieto, a medieval picturesque town on top of a tufa slope, know since the ancient day as “Oinarea” “the city where wine flows”.
We will not miss the awesome Cathedral and its most impressive Renaissance Chapel of San Brizio, masterpiece by Luca Signorelli, and some unique artisan shops.
After Orvieto will follow the visit to the vineyard.
The extended hilly territory between the Bolsena lake-Lazio, and Orvieto-Umbria, for its climate characteristics, is specifically suitable for vineyards, and the growth of typical local vines from ancient clones, such as the famous Sagrantino, from which comes one of the best Italian wines, this is proved also by the tradition, the production from this specific area was always the most appreciated by Popes and Nobility. The estate offers one of the most beautiful “panorama” and the greatest wines, let’s prepare the palate for the tasting adventure!

* Wine tastings can be also organized in Rome
