Service Description

Nestled between the Apennine and the Sub Apennine, Umbria is known as the « Green Heart of Italy » and is aptly, overflowing with extraordinary food and wine traditions! While often overshadowed by its famous, and wealthy neighbor to the West (Tuscany), Umbria has a rich culture in its own right. A place where ancient meets maverick, and tradition meets modernity, Umbria welcomes both international, and Tuscan grape varieties, as well as some fascinating local grape varieties, including Sagrantino, two Grechettos, and two Trebbianos (none of which are related to each other!). Umbria is home to many little-known wine treasures: Full-bodied reds, age-worthy whites, red passito wines, the only DOC-regulated botrytis wine in Italy, and even a host of artisanal traditional method sparkling wines! This class will impart a special focus on the region's greatest red and white appellations: Orvieto and Montefalco, Italy's most refreshing white, and most concentrated red wines! Students will come away with an intimate understanding of the regions, its terroir, main appellations, as well as the ancient and contemporary history, which shapes the wines and culture, making it such an exciting place to explore.
