Your Orvieto wine tasting tour from Rome will begin with a leisurely morning drive through the beautiful countryside into the heart of Umbria, the verdant region of Italy praised for its fine wines, both red and white. This unique terroir largely comprised of limestone, sandy clay soil, and marine fossils from the prehistoric Pliocene lends this region’s wines their vibrant taste, complexity, and structure.
Scenic country roads that wind around undulating steep hills and deep valleys will lead you to an esteemed wine estate situated on the crest of a hill. Surrounded by vineyards, cypress trees, and wooded hills, this is a welcomed oasis far from city life and intimately close to nature.
You will spend 1.5 hours visiting this remote wine estate that has produced wine for generations. Learn the traditional process of winemaking, and savor elegant wines produced from the grapes that grow on endless rows of vines where natural and sustainable agricultural practices are applied.
The winemakers will guide you through your tasting of elegant wines accompanied by a small plate of local delicacies. With every sip of wine, you can taste the history that culminates in the flavors of the winery’s bounty. Raise a glass and toast your unforgettable sojourn to this winery beautifully situated in the idyll Umbrian hills.
Viticulture is a well-documented ancient tradition when the enigmatic Etruscans introduced winemaking and grape cultivation, carving out primitive “wine cellars” into the tuffaceous rock for their wine production. The Etruscans were a highly advanced pre-Roman civilization that thrived in this region, and their winemaking grew into a flourishing trade that continued with the Romans into the modern day Italians.
Before leaving, be sure to also shop for that perfect bottle of wine or locally produced olive oil for you or as precious gifts to loved ones at home.
At the conclusion of your winery visit, you will once again join your private driver for a 30-minute drive to Orvieto to enjoy a delicious lunch and sightseeing.
Strategically built on the plateau of a large butte of volcanic tuff since ancient Etruscan times, Orvieto dominates the surrounding Umbrian countryside that’s a verdant patchwork of vineyards, olive orchards, and dense forests.
While in Orvieto you will appreciate free time on your own for a tasty lunch at a local restaurant of your choice and sightseeing in town. Orvieto boasts wide pedestrian-friendly streets lined with gastronomic boutiques and shops that will entice you with stunning hand-crafted and hand-painted ceramics. You will also find wine shops (enoteche) that offer a variety of local wines for tasting and purchase.
Your visit to Orvieto is not complete without admiring the late 13th century Gothic Cathedral of Orvieto, dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin. It took the cathedral 30 years to plan and 300 years to reach its current splendor. The cathedral’s dazzling seven-story facade is decorated with dark green and white marble, adorned with niches that frame life-size sculpted figures, and it’s bejeweled with mosaics that shimmer in the golden afternoon sunlight.
Gorgeous vibrant frescoes transformed the cathedral into a museum that houses a treasure trove of masterpieces by famous artists of that time such as Luca Signorelli and Fra Angelico. Tickets are required to visit the beautiful chapels inside the Cathedral.
After lunch and sightseeing in Orvieto, you will again join your driver at 4:00 PM to travel back to Rome aiming to arrive at your hotel by approximately 5:45 PM. You will enjoy a relaxing journey reminiscing the superlative sights and flavors you experienced on your unforgettable wine tasting tour in Umbria.
