Tuscany has long held a reputation for producing some of the best wines in Italy.
Umbria is best known for its Orvieto DOC, responsible for about 80% of the region’s vineyards. Umbria primarily produces white wines, specifically Trebbiano and Grechetto, and also produces some red wines such as Sagrantino and Sangiovese.
Many of our guests travel to Italy with friends and family, and they sometimes have different tastes. For example, some may prefer Umbria’s white wines, some may prefer Tuscany’s reds, and some haven’t yet settled on their favorite and wish to sample both. Some are wine connoisseurs and wish to experience the various wines of Tuscany and Umbria, and others don’t drink wine at all.
This tour is suitable for everyone as those who are interested in wine tasting in Orvieto and Montepulciano can sample the local wines at various wine shops throughout the towns. Those who do not wish to partake in wine tasting can enjoy exploring the majestic historical towns.
Most wine shops are owned and operated by the wineries themselves, offering visitors wonderful opportunities to sample and purchase a variety of wines produced by top local winemakers. As each winery strives to add its own special touch and unique grape blends to its wines, sampling different types of wine produced by different wineries introduces you to a wider variety of wines than if you visited one winery alone. This tour offers the perfect opportunity to discover your own favorite Tuscan red or Umbrian white.
