Fall full of Flavours in Umbria - Orvieto con Gusto

Fall has come, sagra, "outdoor" food festivals, closed...we're ready to stay at home and wait for next Summer dreaming about the amazing food and wines we had during the season....



No, friends! We're in Umbria!
Fall has come, ok, but other food festivals are coming in the region!


The first one we are happy to talk about on our blog is the new edition (actually the 13th) of Orvieto con Gusto, organized again this year- after a very long period of silence - with the title l'Arca dei Sapori. La terra: i frutti del territorio, a claim which says it all: a total immersion on Orvietan culinary traditions and famous wine production.

The programme is really very reach, an intense week (28th September - 7th October 2012) dedicated to the promotion of the flavours of the territory but also to the discover of something unusual for our Umbrian palates, like Armagnac from France (don't miss the special dinner at Il Palazzo del Gusto on the 5th October - ph. + 39 0763.393529 email here ), tasting of rum and grappa with cigars, Armagnac and chocolate, conferences on cuisine and philosophy and concerts.


The festival will end on the weekend 6th-7th October with an incredible passeggiata, a "food and wine walk" among and inside the beautiful monuments of this amazing Etruscan town.

You can find all the detailed info on Orvieto con Gusto website (programme in pdf. in English)



The importance of the event - organized by the Municipality of Orvieto, Association Orvieto Way of Life and Cittaslow - is pointed out by the huge and prestigious sponsors' list: Ministry of Agriculture, Region of Umbria, Province of Terni, with the collaboration of Il Palazzo del Gusto, Slow Food Orvieto, Strade del Vino e dell'Olio dell'Umbria, Università dei Sapori, many other local associations and companies (see here), and last but not the least FISAR Orvieto, the federation of Sommeliers we belong to,  in charge of all the entire wine tasting and wine events during this long "eating" marathon.



We are also very happy to inform you that during the first weekend of the festival, FISAR and its Sommeliers will be involved in a charity event in favour of the Association Orvieto against the Cancer with a booth in Piazza della Repubblica on the 29th and 30th September.



 No excuse to visit Umbria and Orvieto! We're waiting for you!
