Detailed Description

This 7-day Umbria wine tour gives you more than just a taste of Umbria’s wine, but immerses you in all the romance that the vibrant region has to offer. Set in the center of Italy, Umbria has the diversity of Italy’s regions, with full bodied red wines, delicate white wines, and architecture that predates Rome. Umbria is easy to miss for those that have never been, but unforgettable for those that have.

Each day in Umbria is another chance to fall in love with Italy, with Umbria, with the food, the wine, and the people. The city of Todi boasts a beautiful and immaculate piazza adorned with the pristine white marble of the Duomo. Orvieto can be seen atop a cliff, towering over the green valley below. See why Montefalco is considered “the Balcony of Umbria,” with a panoramic view of the region from every angle. Montefalco has more than just a view but also preserves incredible churches.

Torgiano still maintains its historic symbol of power in the walls that surround the city. Assisi grows higher up the mountain the closer you are, one of the most popular cities to visit, with the bleached white façade of the church of Saint Francis shining over the valley, the home of Saint Francis and some of the regions best wine. Perugia, the capital of Umbria, will have you following Etruscan walls around the city and exploring the empty, colorful streets that take you through history.

The air of Umbria smells of wheat and old stone. The people welcome you into their shops and restaurants with welcoming smiles and exaggerated gesticulations. Umbria quietly boasts its historical past, while maintaining a proud and friendly modernity.
