Umbria Slow: Nature, Wine and Authenticity – A Unique Experience at Vinitaly


On 15 April, 10 a.m., at the International Wine and Spirits Exhibition, itineraries and tourist routes, wine and food, cultural and outdoor experiences will be presented in a slow and conscious travel perspective

On the occasion of the Vinitaly, in Verona from 14 to 17 April 2024, Federalberghi Confcommercio, UmbriaSì, Tour Operator and Umbria & Bike, the regional consortium dedicated to cycle tourism, are organising on 15 April, 10:00 am, at the Umbria stand (Hall 2 Stand 48) “Umbria Slow: Nature, Wine and Authenticity“, a meeting dedicated to promoting Umbria through a slow approach that enhances nature, wine and authenticity, guiding visitors to discover the natural, cultural and enogastronomic beauties of Umbria, with a slow and conscious travel perspective.

The meeting will be attended by Damocle Magrelli, president of Federalberghi of the province of Perugia and of UmbriaSì, Amilcare Pambuffetti, owner of the Scacciadiavoli winery in Montefalco, Rolando Fioriti, president of Umbria & Bike, Paola Agabiti, Umbria Region Councillor for Tourism.

The common aim is to invite people to explore Umbria by following a slow pace, which allows them to appreciate the richness and variety of the territory in a sustainable manner.

Umbria, with its enchanting landscapes, medieval villages, rich history, art, culture and wine and food traditions lends itself to a ‘slow’ approach, opting for more immersive experiences that foster a deeper connection with the territory, its people and traditions.

With Umbria Slow, itineraries and routes through vineyards and olive groves will be proposed, following the paths on the Via di San Francesco, with visits to wineries for tastings of fine wines such as Trebbiano Spoletino, the main variety among the white grapes in Umbria, for cycling enthusiasts who want to savour the beauty of Umbria on two wheels through the rolling hills that are home to the Trebbiano Spoletino vineyards, passing from Spoleto to Trevi and Castel Ritaldi.

A rich programme of food, wine, cultural and outdoor experiences will be presented with the Spring Sundays in Umbria, offering daily experiences in April, May and June to discover the deep identity of the ‘Sea of Umbria’, such as the discovery of the Lake Trasimeno Nature Oasis, open-air walks with friendly alpacas in Umbertide, walks along the river Tiber, chocolate tastings in Perugia, eco-tours with the little train in Assisi, wine and oil tastings in Montefalco at the Scacciadiavoli winery.

Umbria Slow also includes other fascinating proposals: a visit to a mysterious Abbey, wine and oil tasting and easy e-bike routes that amaze with every pedal stroke and hot-air balloon flights to admire breathtaking landscapes. Along with special wine and food routes in the area of Gubbio, a mysterious and surprising medieval town. Or pedal along the Tiber between Orvieto and Todi, visiting wine cellars, immersed in the charm of the Renaissance and the wonder of Contemporary Art.
