History has certainly influenced Umbria also from a gastronomic point of view, therefore we propose a series of tastings of wine, oil and other typical products to better savor our land.

Nature, Animals and Good Food

The first part of this trip is a visit to a famous Montefalco vineyard with a wine tour and tasting.
We will then move to a rare breeds pig and sheep farm where they breed the ‘Cinte Senese’ pig, a pig particular to central Italy. There will be a guided tour showcasing the Farm’s animal husbandry and management.
You will then move on to a teaching farm where you will take a light lunch of local cured meats, cheeses and typical local produce. After lunch a farmer will take you on a tour around the farm and give a fascinating and wide ranging explanation of the interactions between the domestic animals (sheep, pigs, chickens etc) local wild plants and herbs, and the mountains.

Da qui ci sposteremo presso un maneggio, immerso nella campagna umbra, dove ci aspettano dei cavalli per una cavalcata di un'ora tra i vigneti della zona.

Truffle Hunting

Umbria is famous for good food and for the many products produced locally; undoubtedly one of the most famous of these is the truffle. The truffle grows almost all year round and can either be the black truffle or, the most prized of all, the white truffle. There is nothing quite so memorable as the pairing of pasta or local meats with truffle.
Truffles can only be found by highly trained dogs and their masters – truffle hunters with years of experience. Your hunt will consist of a walk taking around 2 hours inside the extensive grounds of Sorgnano.
The hunt will conclude with a light lunch based on your freshly harvested truffles!

Ancient Umbrian Crafts

We will start by visiting an old ceramics factory that from the 1500s produced and painted ceramics. We will visit the museum and the workshop to see all the processes of this ancient craft.
We will then move to Perugia and visit one of the most ancient textile workshops in Italy. Located in a deconsecrated church of the 1300s that still produces fabrics using machinery from more than 100 years ago.
From there we will head towards the city centre to visit a glass factory and museum that specialises in making stained glass windows for churches; however, we will first eat at what is arguably considered to be the best pizzeria in Perugia. The Pizzeria still uses the traditional methods started by the founder in 1850. During the visit we will discover the techniques with which these masterpieces are created.
