Regional wine tasting
Umbria has been a wine producing region since the times of the Etruscans (7th – 5th century BC.). In Tuscany and Umbria wine routes, are so-called ‘strada di vino. And along these routes, with their vineyards are organized daily trips. Interesting, but large and quite touristy. For that reason, we are organizing 6 different and more private wine tours, we are visiting the smaller boutique wineries. Here you can literally taste the personal attention and passion for wine by the Owners. You will be impressed by all the beauty of stunning landscapes and the delicacies of the Umbrian soil.
