Sagrantino – Unique Grape of Montefalco, Umbria

The Vendemmia is upon us!! We are very fortunate to live right smack bang in the middle of the Sagrantino area in and around Montefalco. Wine-lovers who take a Gusto Wine Tour  at this time of year (September/October) are often lucky enough to see part of the vendemmia  (grape harvest). Sometimes, they might even be able to pick a bunch of grapes or two! When do you get to see Sagrantino being harvested? The Sagrantino grape is one of the last of the grapes to be harvested, usually around the middle of October. The bunches are carefully picked by hand, and brought...

The Last Sunday of May – Cantine Aperte.

Originally Posted  by Gusto Wine Tours on May 22, 2011 Thought I’d quickly update this blog post from 2011! We originally thought when we first started Gusto Wine Tours that this would be the busiest day of the year – Cantine Aperte (Open Wineries).  We were also under the impression that only Umbria did this open day. We were wrong on both counts.  The world and his wife descend on the cantine on this day making it nigh on impossible to contemplate organising an intimate personal wine tour!  We now know, of course that this special day is for every...

Another Typically Non-Typical Gusto Wine Tours Day!

We get enquiries sometimes that cause us to do a double-take! This year we had a request from a very nice man from the States asking if we could organise a special event for him & his fiancé while they were on a wine tour with us. He wanted to surprise her with a little chapel blessing in honour of their forthcoming wedding in a small, out the way place, preferably with a view…..  Could we rise to the occasion? At first we didn’t think it would be possible – this is Italy, after all, the home of the beloved...
