Wine Enthusiast's European Winery of 2012

Caprai winery

015 Arnaldo Caprai

Umbria region best wine tasting

Private food & wine experience

Wine Spectator Top 100 white wine

In the green heart of Italy, where San Francesco was born, in Wine Spectator’s TOP 100 appears a WHITE wine.

Concreteness, authenticity & simplicity!

Umbria region is a lot less famous if compared with its neighboring region Tuscany, but…

Umbria has maintained many medieval traditions in wine and food, it’s permeated with a widespread mystical sprit due to the presence of St. Francis, it has remained absolutely authentic and traditional, without conceding anything to contamination and “dramas” for tourists…

You’ll experience here something that is really unique.

Wine Enthusiast in 2012 proclaimed Arnaldo Caprai European Winery of the year, Wine Spectator in 2016 listed Arnaldo Caprai white “Grechetto” in the TOP 100.

In this elite winery you’ll be received as professionals and enjoy a custom VIP wine tasting & food pairing.

The VIP SIGNATURE EXPERIENCE

Welcome to the Arnaldo Caprai winery with a fresh classic method sparkling wine aperitif and a matching appetizer.

PRIVATE tour of the company. One of our Wine Educators will be at your complete disposal, accompanying you on a visit to the cellar.

The visit begins with a view of the vineyards, which will be followed by a path inside the cellars and all the areas to follow and become aware of the stages of the production process, from the fermentation area to the refining area, up to the bottling line.

Tasting & pairing of typical local food

At the end of the visit you will return to the new “Monte della Torre” wine shop.

This is an exclusive space within the Arnaldo Caprai estate from whose terrace you can enjoy a unique view of Montefalco and the Sagrantino vineyards, illuminated until sunset.

The tasting will be a sensory journey within our reality, only possible here and reserved in this formula exclusively for WFTI customers.

In the tasting our best labels will be paired with a specific combination of local “zero miles food”.

Products specially chosen on the basis of seasonality and the best ability to mutually enhance each other with the wines.

For example, we’ll start with a selection of local cured meats, cheeses and bread with our extra virgin olive oil, continue with a combination of scrambled eggs with truffles, white focaccia, panzanella, omelette, a hot first course and then the traditional Umbrian dessert “rocciata” or fruit to finish.
