‘La Strada dei Vini del Cantico’ Wine Routes
has a long tradition of wine making, thanks to its mild climate and
the characteristic geology of the land. ‘La Strada dei Vini del
Cantico’, the wine route, unwinds between green rolling hills,
atmospheric villages and panoramic roads, an undiscovered Umbria. Travel
up and down the ancient Roman roads from the ‘Colli Martani’
with the type of ‘Sangiovese Riserva’ to the famous ‘Grechetto’
of Todi. This is the land of ‘DOC Colli Perugini’, which
makes the most of the typical Umbrian vines such as Grechetto, Trebbiano
Autumn is the time of the grape harvest and is certainly one of the
most suggestive times to pass time in this area, winter also offers
beautiful scenes and intense tastes of a typical gastronomy rich with
flavour, there are other possibilities to follow the working of grapes
to make wines.
In spring and summer it is possible to combine the wine route with walking,
cycling and horse riding in a very varied natural environment, where
the perfume of the land and its products can be smelt. The territory
comprises: Todi, Marsciano, Perugia, Torgiano, Bettona, Cannara, Spello,
Assisi, Bastia Umbra, Umbertide and Perugia.
'Le strade dell'olio DOP': The DOP oil route - the land of Colli Martani
its hills and mountains this area is the most genuine Umbria. Successful
land, bewitching land, “jucunda” land as Saint Francis of
Assisi called it. It is a valley of Umbria immersed in the heart of
the “Green Heart of Italy”, where Umbria is the most Umbrian
you will find. Here, above all, the vast area of olives and vineyards
perfume the air and give flavour to the simple life of this area, industrious,
but at the same time “slow”. “Museums everywhere”,
named for the thousands of expressions of art which turn up in every
corner of the land, the herald of other museums which were founded to
celebrate the history and tradition, such as the “Regional Museum
of Ceramics” in Deruta and in Torgiano the “Lungarotti Museum
of Wine and Olive Oil” an authentic “monument” to
the regional treasures.
Between Torgiano and the Etruscan Bettona you will find the history
of the powerful “Castello di Rosciano” and further afield
the ancient “Castello di Ritaldi”. It is fascinating to
reach Gualdo Cattaneo and Giano dell’Umbria, prestigious “Città
dell’Olio”, via roads lined with olive trees, here as in
other parts of the region an inspiration for poets, writers, painters
and simple travellers – characterised by many examples of Macciano
and Camporeggiano in the “Abbazia di San Felice”. Masterpiece
of the Romanesque period and workshop of oil, this Abbey gives its name
to the local produce whose sweetness characterizes the extravirgin olive
oil of the “Monti Martani”. This plant, source of life and
beauty, still metaphorically speaking, is a custodian of history and
tradition which repeats in particolar during the “Festa della
Frasca”, which takes place at the end of the olive harvest, the
so called happy ending.
