Our hostess (Agnes) was very nice and informative. The wine-tasting was instructive and tasty. The walk through the vineyards on our own was appreciated and a lot of fun (including the tasting of grapes on the vine). The gazebo provided a great area to rest and a splendid view of Assisi. The food was plentiful and delicious. The service was excellent. Unfortunately it was a very windy day, but that almost added to the fun.
We enjoyed an informative and delicious wine tasting at SAIO before a lovely walk through their vineyards to a covered picnic lunch area at the foot of Assisi - providing majestic views across the vineyards. Lunch, accompanied by a glass each of our selected SAIO wine was a beautiful platter of salami, prosciutto, cheese and breads. We had a wonderful experience and Agnese was a brilliant host - thank you so much!
The wine tasting picnic was fantastic, the host Agnes was great, explained everything well. Supplied beautiful wine and gave us easy directions to amble around her family's vineyard. The views to Assisi were stunning. After the winery walk has a great picnic lunch of locally produced goodies, washed down with a glass of red wine from the vineyard, taking in breath taking views of Assisi. Very relaxing 3 hrs.
You will not regret this tasting. The owner/operator provide such a personalized and unique experience you will not want to miss this. The tour of the vineyard and picnic basket lunch against the backdrop of Assisi was a highlight of our vacation. All previous tasting experiences will pale in comparison. Wonderful time.
The wines were very good and the "picnic" exceeded expectations. The walk through the vineyard was a quiet break from typical touring. The only caution I would offer is that it is not walking distance from the town of Assisi! The busy roads don't have sidewalks, best to take a taxi. Highly recommended!
