Our tasting experiences

The mission:

Offering you fascinating wines and their stories. There are more than 500 different “vigneti” in Italy, with at least 30 in Umbria alone. With us, you can have a taste of many of them, alongside whimsical food pairings that add more fun to the wines and to your experience. Knowing more about what you are drinking enhances the joy.


We are organizing events to specific themes, at our residence “Villa Orfei”, with wineries and with everyone who wants to engage us for an interesting project. You will find these events on our events page and you can register your partecipation


We offer small events from 1 to 6 participants, providing you with a more exclusive and personal wine experience. We think it is important to focus on having fun as much as on a “professional tasting”.You will get 0.1 l of every wine in the tasting to appreciate every wine in the tasting . No one will be scandalized if you drink it and do not spit it out :-). You can end the day taking your favorite tasted wines with you for little money.

We have our proposals for tasting, but we can tailor the tasting to your wishes.

  • If you want a specific winery – you get it. 
  • if you want a vertical tasting of a specific wine through the years – we will make it happen. 
  • If you want a horizontal tasting of a wine from different producers, no problem.
  • If you don’t know how to pair your favorite dish with wine, we will find the right pairings together.

The cost varies, depending on what wines interest you. (If your interest is in a vertical Brunello tasting please be prepared, this is a luxurious event, priced accordingly).
