Montefalco, the ‘Balcony of Umbria’: Celebrating Fine Wines, Textiles, and Renaissance Majesty – October 9th, 2021
After viewing this video, you’ll understand why recent tour guests, Ann and Fred, wrote to me, “ Annie, thanks so much for we had no idea there was so much to discover in Montefalco!”
Rightly called “the balcony of Umbria”, more than splendid views of valleys and vineyard-draped hills entice Montefalco visitors.
Together, we’ll visit the town’s late September wine festival and wander backstreets where shops display the famous loom-woven linen textiles, many designs highlighting grapes and vines. We’ll meet local artisans and learn about the splendid Renaissance fresco cycle in a medieval church.
We’ll share local culinary specialties in a “five-star” restaurant housed in an 18th-century carriage house adjoining a noble palazzo.
There’s so much to share in Montefalco that a second presentation is coming up!
