More Information on Cycling in the Vineyards of Montefalco

 

We will start this one-day tour in the medieval town of Montefalco (which is within easy reach of Perugia, Assisi, Spoleto and Todi), known as “the balcony of Umbria” because of the panoramic views, where we will pick up our bikes.

 

The tour will take us on a meandering course through the rolling hills and vineyards around Montefalco and into Bevagna stopping in the wineries we pass to sample the local wines and also for a relaxed lunch.

 

We will get to taste the excellent Sagrantino di Montefalco, one of only two Umbrian wines to be awarded the prestigious DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita –the highest Italian wine appellation) in both secco and passito (sweet dessert wine), the Rosso di Montefalco DOC (produced from a combination of Sangiovese, Sagrantino and Merlot grapes) as well as Grechetto and a number of other wines.
