I was in Perugia today lunching with a good friend,  and afterwards lazily wandering down the Corso Vanucci people watching and window shopping in the warm sunshine when a leaflet was thrust into my hand…

It seems that the Umbria Wine Festival is about to take place in Perugia.

On 24 & 25 April the winegrowers of Umbria are presenting their new wines at the beautiful Chiostro di San Pietro.

“Le cantine dell’Umbria presentano i loro vini e le nuove annate.  Chiostro di San Pietro, Facolta di Agraria, Perugia 24 e 25 Aprile”

For an entrance fee of €10.00 you get a free glass and the chance to sample some of Umbria’s finest wines over two days from 11am to 9pm.  I know it is short notice, but if you have nothing planned for that weekend where better to spend it than in Umbria, staying at Bellaugello Gay bed and breakfast, and in Perugia sampling fine wines.  Rest assured that’s what I will be doing – need to have sampled the best wines available for guests this summer!!!

Check out the link to the wine festival site: Umbria Wine Festival , check Ryanair flights to Perugia and come and stay at Bellaugello!
