Umbria

Secret Treasures Revealed
With Tanya Morning Star
Mar 17 2021

Summary:

Nestled between the Apennine and the Sub Apennine, Umbria is Known as the Green Heart of Italy and is apt, 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, but is also the home of many indigenous grapes as well, and 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 webinar will dive deep into the terroirs, appellations, and wines of Umbria, and also explore the ancient and contemporary history, which shapes the wines and culture, making it such an exciting place to explore.
