Meet your wine-loving guide at a central point in Assisi, and set off for the picturesque Umbiran countryside, traveling through one of Italy’s most well-preserved landscapes. Ancient vineyards here are planted with the celebrated Sagrantino grape, which was imported from Asia by Franciscan monks. It is only cultivated in this specific region of Umbria and was awarded Italy’s prestigious DOCG denomination in 1992.
Begin with a visit to the charming medieval town of Montefalco, which sits perched on a hilltop in the midst of the Sagrantino growing region. From here, visit one of the area’s finest wineries and cellars, where you'll meet the family winemakers and enjoy a guided tasting of Umbria’s famous varietals. Experience the full flavor of the wine with a light ‘merenda’ lunch pairing featuring local products.
The tour can be customized with your choice of a morning or afternoon departure and usually lasts for 4 hours. If you're short on time, you can request to head straight to the winery to begin the tasting experience directly.
