CANTINE APERTE "OPEN WINERIES" 30 MAY 2010
Cantine Aperte is the most important event of the year, involving wine as the main protagonist together with the people who produce it and the territory where it is made. For the past 17 years during the last Sunday of May, the members of the association have opened their doors to the vast public establishing in this way an immediate and direct contact with all wine tourists and lovers.
Also this year, many Umbrian Wine Estates will take part to this national Event.
Among the many wineries that take part to the event, this year we are happy to promote SAIO WINERY owned by the Mencarelli family, a young winery very close to Assisi.
The Mencarelli winery is located at the foot of the basilica of San Francesco, in Assisi. With an extension of almost 50 acres consisting of grapevines and olive groves. The product SAIO, the company name, is a perfect union between history-culture of the territory paying particular attention to the quality of the products offered. In the making of wine, these values become real using precision and perfection to produce 10.500 pounds an acre of product to produce a combination of harmony, taste and warm colors. At the present the Mencarelli winery produces four types of wine (Grechetto, Sangiovese, Sangiovese-Merlot, and Legenda Maior (Merlot-Cabernet), a red wine matured in oak casks) and an extra vergine olive oil. The winery has available also a cozy and hospitable wine shop with a large parking lot where it is possible to taste and purchase our SAIO products after taking a pleasant walk between the vinyards enjoying the site of a seraphic city, Assisi.
SAIO WINERY this year proposes a wine tasting itinery among the vineyards.
