    Orvieto, the Magic, and Mystery of the Place and it’s Wines

    Wed. May. 6 2020 @ 12:00 noon EST
    Orvieto, the Magic, and Mystery of the Place and it’s Wines

    The Orvieto wine-producing region in Umbria is a whole package of beauty, history, cultural richness, and extraordinary wines, a region that sometimes flies under the radar beside its famous neighbors in Tuscany.

    Orvieto wines were the prize of the renaissance period in Italy, but in recent history the wines have been better known for deliciously democratic wines led by cooperatives and wines bottled by Tuscan giants like Antinori, and Ruffino. In the last 40 years Orvieto has undergone an Estate bottling revolution, which has spurred a culture of quality and pursuit of terroir values in the region, yet the pleasure to be found here is still under-recognized. Did you know, for example, that Orvieto is the only DOC in Italy to regulate the production of Noble Rot, or that Orvieto has both marine sedimentary soils, as well as volcanic ones? Well, these little known facts, just scratch the surface of wonders to be discovered in Orvieto!

    In this class, we will uncover the magic and mystery of this region: the town, the terroirs, the wines, and the people who create them.

    Presenter: Tanya Morning Star Darling
