A lovely wine tasting experience

We enjoyed our tasting. The host was very knowledgeable about the wines and the broader region. The wines are lovely and we were invited to walk the vineyards which have amazing views of Assisi.

Thank you so much Mr. Sam for your visit! I'm glad you appreciated the wines and the experience here in the Vineyard of Assisi. Cheers! :)

Degustazione e passeggiata

Siamo rimasti piacevolmente colpiti dalla professionalità e dalla disponibilità del personale.
Degustazione spiegata in maniera chiara e completa , accompagnata da un aperitivo abbondante pieno di prelibatezze locali.
Infine la passeggiata tra i vigneti al tramonto è stato qualcosa di mozzafiato, consiglio veramente l’esperienza!

About Winery and Wines

Come to discover the wines of Umbria and the extarvergine olive oil!

SAIO is the vineyard of Assisi. 20 hectares of vineyards and olive groves 800 m from St. Francis Church, UNESCO Heritage Site. Here the Mencarelli family makes fine wines and the extravergine olive oil. Small productions under the banner of craftsmanship and respect for nature.

Through wine tastings, hand made food, and outdoor activities, you'll discover the history and traditions of a unique territory like Assisi.

Experiences to be lived as a couple and with friends, but also many activities to enjoy with children for a family Sunday in the Vineyard of Assisi.

We love animals and we'll be happy to welcome you with your dog.

Umbria has a lot to offer: historical and artistic tours, natural itineraries and of course enogastronomic itineraries that are rooted in ancient traditions.
Wineries in Umbria will help you discover the peculiarities of the Assisi territory, Montefalco, Orvieto, Lake Trasimeno and much more…
Before starting a winetasting tour in Umbria, let's discover the characteristics of the Assisi Vineyard:

The typical pink and white-stones of the Subasio Montain make the Soil pebbly and permeable, perfect for high quality wines, fine, elegant, high in alcohol, with intense scented bouquets.

The fresh Tramontana wind always flows at night, it assures a wide temperature excursion and helps the vines to convey aromas to their barries.

The Sun radiates the clusters constantly in the right way thanks to the right orientation of the lines, trimming long shoots and eliminating excess leaves by hand.

During harvest the grape is in the cellar for a soft press by max. 3 hours form the picking. The must is fermented in stainless steel containers at controlled temperature to exalt the natural aromas in the process from must to wine. Ageings in oak barrels and then in the bottle are contantly checked to enhance the peculiarities of a wine that always reflects the characteristics of its own vintage
