Wine Tasting at a Wine Estate in Umbria

Your Post Cruise Wine Tour from Civitavecchia begins with a leisurely drive from the cruise port into the heart of Umbria, traveling along scenic windy country roads that weave through the Umbrian countryside defined by its sandy clay soil, limestone, marine fossils, and seashells from the prehistoric Pliocene era when millions of years ago this land was submerged under the sea.  This unique local terroir lends the wines their vibrant taste, complexity, and structure. 

 

Umbria Wine Tasting Tours from Civitavecchia post cruise tours to Rome Cabs



This fine region of Umbria is renowned for its exquisite wines since the ancient Etruscans:  the highly advanced pre-Roman civilization that thrived in this region from the 8th century BCE to the 3rd-2nd centuries BCE.  The Etruscans introduced winemaking, vine grafting, and grape cultivation which grew into a flourishing trade. Primitive “wine cellars” were carved into the tuffaceous rock for their wine production which became part of the Etruscan viticulture history.

Your countryside journey will take you to the tranquil hilltop winery estate surrounded by rows of vineyards, olive orchards, and enthralling Umbrian and Tuscan landscapes. This remarkable winery is an ideal oasis far away from civilization and very close to nature.

Orvieto is an ancient town with beautifully well-preserved medieval buildings and wide pedestrian-friendly streets lined with inviting shops that sell unique hand-painted ceramics, gastronomic boutiques, cafes, and restaurants. 

Behold the magnificent late 13th-century Gothic Cathedral of Orvieto dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin.  It took 30 years to plan and 300 years to achieve the cathedral’s current splendor.  The seven-story facade is adorned with fine decorations with dark green and white marble strips and carvings, niches that frame life-size sculpted figures, and colorful mosaics that glimmer in the afternoon golden sunlight.

How to Taste Wine / 5 Wine Tasting Tips:

  • SEE - See the color, depth, and intensity of the wine in your glass.  The color also indicates the types of grapes used or if the wine was aged in wood.
  • SWIRL:  Swirling aerates the wine and allows oxygen to “open it up” revealing its complexities
  • SNIFF/ SMELL - It’s essential to sniff the wine before tasting it as a wine’s quality can be judged by its aroma.
  • SIP - Take a larger than-normal sip and hold it in your mouth for 3-5 seconds to taste the characteristics of the wine’s flavor: sweetness, bitterness, fruitiness, alcohol...
  • SAVOR - The taste doesn’t just end once you swallow the wine. The finish is the duration of time the essence of the wine lingers and stays with you. A long finish is ideal, especially when the overall taste of the wine leaves you craving another sip.


PLEASE WINE TASTE RESPONSIBLY


We wish for all our guests to enjoy our Orvieto wine tours, however, only guests who are of legal drinking age in Italy can participate in wine tastings. Guests not of legal drinking age or unable to participate in wine tastings can enjoy sightseeing and a leisurely visit to the winery.

For your enjoyment of this wine-tasting tour,  we urge you to please wine taste responsibly and never on an empty stomach. Please evaluate your personal tolerance of wine consumption and refrain from overindulging as it will interfere with your enjoyment of this shore excursion.

RomeCabs does not accept responsibility for guests’ personal wine-tasting decisions should they be excessive and interfere with their tour enjoyment. Guests who overindulge and wish to depart for their hotel in Rome sooner will not be reimbursed for shortening their tour.
