The Green Heart of Italy: the Wine and Food of Umbria

This session will be presented by Jane A. Nickles, CSE, CWE 

Nestled between Tuscany, Lazio, and Le Marche, Umbria is often called the green heart of Italy. While touring this region’s rolling hills and fertile plains, we’ll sip some Orvieto—the region’s beloved, easy-to-drink white refresher—and sample the region’s two DOCGs (Montefalco Sagrantino and Torgiano Rosso Riserva). In addition to its famous wines, olive oil, and cheese, Umbria is also known for its pork, beef, and lamb—and claims to be the home of porchetta (which we will discuss in detail)! We’ll also discuss the region’s famous red potatoes (Patata Rossa di Colfiorito IGP), green lentils (Lenticchie di Castelluccio di Norcia IGP), and garlic-infused lean salami (Salamini Italiani Alla Cacciatora DOP).
