Red, White, and Green: A Guide to Wine in Umbria

If you’ve come across a wine from Umbria outside Italy, it will probably have been this crisp white made with Trebbiano, Grechetto, Verdello and Canaiolo grapes grown on the hills outside the stunning clifftop city of Orvieto. Orvieto Classico DOC makes up 75% of Umbria’s total wine production, and the dry white is beloved worldwide for its clean mineral and light fruit flavors produced from the unique volcanic terroir in the area.

The award-winning Palazzone and small is one of the favorites of local sommalier and wine tour guide, Alessandra Mallozzi.
