Wine and food experiences

Umbria, a small region with great tastes, satisfies all palates: the best dish for meat lovers is pork, masterfully treated by Umbrian butchers who turn the meat into delicacies like sausages, tasty hams and salami, like those of Norcia, to eat with unsalted bread that brings out the taste.
This rich array of dishes goes hand-in-hand with the genuine quality of the products, including the truffle, the most precious of all. The most common variety is the black truffle, very popular with pasta or with game, especially in the area of Norcia and Spoleto, but more valuable white truffles can be found as well, particularly in the Tiberina Valley, Orvieto and Gubbio.
Everything is seasoned with the golden and fruity olive oil produced in this region, which enhances any dish without upstaging the flavor; Umbrian oil of high quality is awarded with a PDO quality mark (Protected Designation of Origin).

  2. Olive Oil

    We have recently finished our last vintage of olive oil with the entire family contributing to different degrees in the picking process. After all the hard work is was a relief to take all the olives down to our local mill in Pierantonio for weighing and to join the queue of people waiting to have their olives pressed.
    We are very proud of our extra-virgin organic olive oil which has a wonderful dark green colour and has a lovely peppery bite. We look forward to giving our guests a taste of real Umbrian oil and making suggestions on how to make use to it to enhance their cooking.

  2. Truffle hunting

    Truffle hunting at Carmine Estate take place early morning in the warmer months of the year before it becomes too hot for both hunters and their dogs. Guests are collected from our Vineria del Carmine and will need to follow the truffle hunter and his dog as they make their way through woodlands around the estate, so we recommend comfortable clothes and walking shoes.
    After the truffle hunt, guests return to our Vineria for a wine and olive oil tasting with our certified bi-lingual Sommelier, Mattia, who will pour the wines and provide a short description of the Estate history, our wine making philosophy and our vineyards. Also included is a tasting of our organic Extra-virgin olive oil and an explanation of the process behind this amazing product as well as an antipasti of local cured meats, cheeses, olives and Umbrian breads.
