In our cooking holidays is always planned the meeting with one or more typical wines of our region.
Your first meeting will occur with our organic red wine, completely produced in the farm.
It is a red wine made from Sangiovese and Montepulciano grapes. It has a ruby color more or less intense; vinous, delicate, with characteristic fragrances; the taste is dry and fruity with good body.
A bottle of this wine will wait you in your apartment as welcome gift and during the lunches that will follow your exciting cooking classes you always enjoy our wine.
Our cooking holidays always include one or more wine tours to discover our DOC and DOCG wines.
Every tour includes transfer with minibus from the farm to the cellar, guided tour of cellar and vineyards and tasting of wine and typical products.
Frequently the tours also included a visit to a typical medieval village near the cellar.
In our wine tours special attention is given to the Sagrantino DOCG wine, the most characteristic of the region.
Montefalco Sagrantino DOCG wine is totally made by the Sagrantino grapes cultivated for centuries on the hills of Umbria. Its production zone covers the entire territory of the Communes of Montefalco, Bevagna, Gualdo Cattaneo, Castel Ritaldi and Giano dell’Umbria, in the province of Perugia.
Sagrantino is produced by only a handful of producers in Montefalco and hardly grown outside Italy at all.
Another destination of our wine tour is the Val d’Orcia in southern Tuscany, known as the birthplace of red wine. You will have a guided tours of the lovely villages of Pienza and Montepulciano and tasting of the wines of this area.
