Full description
Picnic in the vineyards of a family farm and wine producer, located just 875 yards (800 meters) from the Basilica of Saint Francis, one of the most important UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Italy. The Mencarelli family has been producing fine wines and extra virgin olive oil for decades, and on this 2.5 hour lunch tour you will walk through their deep green vineyards, and learn about the wonderful world of Umbrian wines. A guided wine tasting of 5 wines makes you know the production. All around will be blue sky, ripe grapes, dusky olive groves, and centuries-old oak trees. Armed with a complimentary map, stop at information boards to learn more about wine and viticulture. Then, under the veranda of the vineyards, a picnic basket will be waiting just for you! Enjoy a glass of SAIO Assisi wine and sample typical Perugia bread, with extra virgin olive oil, pecorino cheese, cured meats from the Subasio Mountains, traditional Umbria Torta al Testo (a salty cheese bread), and Umbrian cookies. All wine glasses, place mats, plates and cutlery will be provided.

We were very nicely received. The wine tasting was perfect with good explanations in English. It was very nice that you could walk through the vineyard. Each grape variety contains information about the grape plant, where it comes from and what the taste is. The picnic was perfectly arranged food was delicious the wine of course. It is highly recommended.

Scenic, delicious, fun, friendly and informative

Our hostess (Agnes) was very nice and informative. The wine-tasting was instructive and tasty. The walk through the vineyards on our own was appreciated and a lot of fun (including the tasting of grapes on the vine). The gazebo provided a great area to rest and a splendid view of Assisi. The food was plentiful and delicious. The service was excellent. Unfortunately it was a very windy day, but that almost added to the fun.

Beautiful day, wines, staff & views of Assisi

We enjoyed an informative and delicious wine tasting at SAIO before a lovely walk through their vineyards to a covered picnic lunch area at the foot of Assisi - providing majestic views across the vineyards. Lunch, accompanied by a glass each of our selected SAIO wine was a beautiful platter of salami, prosciutto, cheese and breads. We had a wonderful experience and Agnese was a brilliant host - thank you so much!
