We are Mark and Giselle and we live in the green heart of Italy - Umbria. We have a simple philosophy in life: Work at what you love, then, you never work a day in your life! We love the wines, the food, the people, the countryside, the culture, the history of this little corner of the world and we want to share this love with you!An intimate approach to tasting the delicious wines of Umbria. Small groups of no more than 8 adult wine lovers (over 16 yrs old)! We go into the Umbrian countryside and take you to the lesser known, usually family owned and run cantinas in the gorgeous rolling hills. Meet the wine makers and their families, taste their freshly made delicacies, sample their fabulous wines. Mark will guide you through the day and keep you entertained with stories of the cantinas! If you want a day to remember, a fun experience with like-minded folks and plenty of wine-tasting memories to take home, then this is the wine tour for you!
