For centuries, wine making, olive oil and truffles have characterized the countryside of Umbria, a region nestled in the geographic green heart of Italy.
Just as you cannot separate Umbrian food from the earth it comes from; you cannot appreciate the fullness of the culture without understanding the art and beauty that is Umbria.
Live in a medieval castle while you participate in cooking classes and excursions that connect you to Umbria’s heritage.
We will introduce you to the producers who are the protectors and providers of the culture of good eating, while showcasing the richness of the art and history of the area.
Our week together will include trips to wineries, a bread baking ‘fattoria’, a visit with a porchetta maestro, intimate dinners at the castle with invited guests who will deepen our understanding of the food we eat and how it connects us to the world we live in.
