Sister and brother, wine and food experts, Certified Sommeliers FISAR (Federazione Italiana Sommelier Albergatori Ristoratori) and Extra Virgin Olive Oil Tasters.

We offer English language assistance and all our ten-year know-how in Tourism and Gastronomy.
Our day visits to wineries and farms are led by us as Certified Sommeliers, our profession. For guided art tours we cooperate with authorized tour guides who are part of our network of local professionals, as well as for any eventual package holiday, where we cooperate with specialized travel agencies according to the regional and national regulations. Accommodation, if required, are provided by our partnered local real estate agencies.
SUSTAINABLE TOURISM – SUPPORTING LOCAL FARMERS
Our work is to take you to the best wineries, olive oil and food producers in Umbria. We have said #no to any direct and indirect profit on the wine/food products that you may purchase at our partnered farms and wineries.
To support the local economy, we have involved in our project small family-run farms, wineries, olive oil mills and food makers producing high quality, organic food in Umbria. Through the Discovering Umbria project you'll have the possibility to meet personally the local farmers and, in case, to buy directly your favourite grown&made in Umbria food at a fair price thanks to the direct relation between the local producer and the customer.
Supporting local farmers helps Umbrian farmers to continue to grow fresh, good and clean food for you and for the next generations.
