Info and Description

A holiday in a farmhouse means also go discover and taste local food and wine, overall if your destination is Umbria, one of the most delightful Italian regions from this point of view, perfect for lovers of food and wine. Here every city has its own products and recipes that characterize its identity, but generally the Umbrian cuisine is a poor one made of simple dishes and genuine products that give life to special recipes, suitable even for the most demanding palates. And despite its small size, Umbria is one of the Italian regions with the highest number of certified food and wine products: a small land with great flavors, perfect for a weekend or a food and wine holiday in Farmhouse.

The chocolate tradition in Perugia

A path of taste as it should be, can not be separated from Perugia, Umbrian capital that boasts a long tradition in the production of chocolate and traditional sweets and that every year hosts the Eurochocolate , international chocolate fair. Also here is the Perugina , a confectionery factory with 1000 years of history and the Perugina Museum.
South of Perugia there are centers of interest such as Torgiano , country of wine and oil, the first Umbrian town to get the DOC and DOCG mark for its wines, a medieval village where there are also the Museum of Oil and 'Olivo and the Wine Museum .
To the north of the capital, however, are the beautiful medieval town of Gubbio and Città di Castello, areas of truffles, especially the white one, while the summer black truffle, also known as Scorzone and used in many Umbrian regional recipes is widespread in the whole region.

The fish from Lago sul Trasimeno

Also the area of Lake Trasimeno is a production area for many food and wine and food products, including extra-virgin olive oil and the cultivation of Fagiolina del Trasimeno and the broccoletti del Trasimeno . Here carps, eels, perch, pike and tench are the main ingredients for ancient popular recipes: the carp in pork , the eel in tegamaccio and fillets of perch are dishes to be enjoyed perhaps in a farmhouse in Umbria with restaurant and to be accompanied with a good glass of DOC Colli del Trasimeno wine, produced in different types, from white to red to rosé.

Do not miss a visit to the small towns of Bevagna and Montefalco , enchanting medieval villages, territories producing excellent oil and fine wines, among which stands out the DOCG Sagrantino wine produced with grapes of the most ancient and precious vines of Umbria in its dry and passito versions. The Strada del Sagrantino is definitely a recommended itinerary if you want to combine the cultural visit with the enological one by going to the discovery of medieval villages and castles.

The Umbrian butchery

Umbria is known all over the world for norcineria, a centuries-old tradition in the processing of meats that give life to delicacies such as hams, salami and sausages protected by the PDO and PGI brands. In Norcia you can buy and taste delicacies such as the flasks of the priest, the famous ham of Norcia, the salami of wild boar truffle, the mule balls , salami with a piece of fat in the center to melt on hot bruschetta and ciauscolo , a spreadable salami obtained by grinding shoulder, loin, ham, bacon and spices. Not only cold meats, but also pecorino cheeses, legumes, like the small and noble lentil of Castelluccio di Norcia and mostly black truffles, to be tasted during the truffle festival.
