Culinary Wine Weekends Umbria & Tuscany
Umbria has produced fine quality wines for centuries and houses a large number of interesting wineries, some of them world famous. Since 2010 we export a large number of these wines to the Netherlands and Belgium, through our webshop www.casasancarlo.shop.
In 2014 Torben finished his three-year study with the Associazione Italiana Sommelier. Now that he has his sommelier title, he likes to share his knowledge also with the guests of Casa San Carlo. Which is why we organize special Culinary Wine Weekends in the months of October and November (minimum 4, maximum 14 participants). During these unique weekends we literally take our guests into the vineyards and have them meet special winemakers who are filled with passion for their product. And of course we make sure our guests taste some of the delicious Umbrian food specialties during lunch and dinner, all accompanied by perfect Umbrian wines.
Three full days of tasting
For three full days you will experience the world of Umbrian wines: just sit back and relax and enjoy the ride! We will pick you up from the airport and will drive you through the beautiful winelands of Umbria and Tuscany. You will visit special wine cellars, and will hear why it is so important to serve the right wine with the right food. Besides from the secrets of wine & food pairing, you will hear lots of entertaining stories about the ‘wineworld’ of Umbria. And of course there will be a lot of tasting to do of both Umbrian and Tuscan wines. During the winetours, Torben will teach you something about the different varieties and combinations. You will visit the lovely city of Orvieto with its stunning cathedral, you will have lunch in beautiful Montefalco… and at the end of the day your comfortable bed awaits you in Casa San Carlo. What’s more to wish for?
The wineries – the ‘cantine’
During this unique winetasting weekend you will get to know a number of small and larger wineries, some of them well-known, others are still undiscovered little gems.
