What you'll do
I will lead a 4 hour walking food and wine tour in the historic center of Perugia. On this tour, guests will hear and see historical insights along the route as we stop at 8 different, cafes, restaurants and markets to taste and learn about typical Umbrian foods and beverages. Tastings include, coffee (or tea) + pastries, cheeses, charcuterie, ancient legumes (Fagiolina del Trasimeno), extra virgin olive oils, fresh truffle pasta, chocolates, Umbrian flatbread, wines, craft beer, artisan gelato + more! Guests will meet and interact with the chefs, servers and small business owners who’ve made it their life’s work to feed us and who have since become dear friends and neighbors. Vegetarian options are available.
I'm a credentialed wine professional holding the Advanced Certificate in Wines & Spirits from the Wine and Spirits Education Trust. I'm currently a candidate in the prestigious W.S.E.T. Diploma program. Prior to moving to Perugia (with my chef husband), I worked in the wine business for 10 years and wrote about wine for New Jersey Monthly Magazine.
Food tastings are enough for breakfast, lunch and dessert. Vegetarian options are available with advance request. Gluten free…
This tour is suitable for families with kids but guests must be 18+ years old to participate in the wine and beer tastings.
