Regional Enoteca

The Regional Enoteca of Umbria, falling under the Province of Terni and situated in the medieval district of Orvieto, is hosted in the cellars of the former Convent of San Giovanni, with premises excavated in the volcanic rock and dating back to Etruscan times.

The best quality wines of Umbria (Docg, Doc, Igt) have been collected and are on display in the evocative maze of ancient tunnels of the Enoteca, or Wine Library, presenting and displaying the wines of the most important wine producers of the region, with an ample variety of wines to be tasted and appreciated.

The guided tour of the Enoteca gives visitors a chance to discover the secret history of Orvieto as told in the culture of its wine and typical products, learning about the mysterious Oinarea whose fame reached Greece in the age of Aristotele and about medieval, renaissance and modern Orvieto.
