TasteUmbria: Italian Wines Meeting in Umbria

In Montefalco, in occasion the first edition of TasteUmbria, a meeting with twenty-seven wineries and their wines

 From October 19th to 21st, took place the first edition of TasteUmbria, in occasion of which some of the best wine producers of Italy met in Montefalco, presenting their wines to the international press. The initiative took place thanks to the idea of five wine producers of Umbria - Fattoria Colleallodole, Villa Mongalli and Tabarrini of Montefalco, Roccafiore of Todi and Madrevite of Castiglione del Lago - who decided to compare their wines with those of other Italian producers. For the occasion have in fact been compared, with the blind tasting method, 14 white wines and 19 red wines, judged by experts and journalists coming from all over the world. It should be said it was not a wine contest, but a wine exhibition with the goal of allowing participants to better know some of the best wines of Italy, including the best wines of the five Umbrian producers who organized the event.

 TasteUmbria was also an occasion for non Italian guests to know and appreciate the monuments and gastronomy of Umbria - known as the “Green Heart of Italy” - favoring the touristic aspects of the region. The first two days of the event have been mainly dedicated to touristic promotion of Umbrian enogastronomy, with visits to the wineries of the five producers who have organized the event. TasteUmbria had its most interesting moment with the blind tasting of the wines produced by the wineries taking part to the event, a moment which ideally united the whole Country with the common goal of promoting their territories and their wine excellencies. The over 60 journalists and experts, from Italy and abroad, could therefore appreciate the many wine expressions of the Country in the very same event, bringing to the glasses grapes and wines from almost every region of Italy.

 Here it is the list of the twenty-seven producers who had their best wines presented at TasteUmbria: Giacomo Fenocchio, Ettore Germano, Köfererhof - Günther Kershbaumer, Tenuta Ansitz Waldgries, Ronco del Gelso, Aldo Rainoldi, Inama, Nicolis, La Cerbaiola - Salvioni, Isole & Olena, Le Macchiole, La Fornace, Fattoria San Lorenzo, La Valentina, Valentini, Pietracupa, Nanni Copè, Morella, Elena Fucci, Passopisciaro, Girolamo Russo, Graci, Fattoria Colleallodole, Madrevite, Roccafiore, Tabarrini and Villa Mongalli. The pleasing and interesting day - which took place at Tabarrini winery of Turrita di Montefalco, surrounded by the green Umbrian view - started with the tasting of white and red wines, followed by a lunch, in which have been served the wines of all the producers taking part to the event, therefore allowing their appreciation with food. The afternoon has been dedicated to the touristic visit of Bevagna and Montefalco villages, therefore ending with a dinner, consisting of dishes made of lake fish and served in the Polvese island of Trasimeno lake. Participants reached the lovely island with a ferry in which has been served an aperitif with the wines of the producers.
