History & Geography
Valle della Chiesa del Carmine, located just north of Perugia in the centre of Italy, has a long tradition of producing fine wine. In 1974, the authoritative American wine journalist, Burton Anderson wrote in the US Wine Spectator about a white wine of impressive quality from land that now falls within the Carmine Estate. We are excited to be making wine from such acclaimed territory. We are assisted by one of Italy’s finest oenologists, Giovanni Dubini, who has been awarded the coveted ‘Premio Cangrande’ at Vinitaly for producers who are leaders in their fields. After initially making wine exclusively for our guests and a select group of local properties, we are now expanding our operations. Presently we have 6.2 hectares of south westerly facing, close planted vines in one of Italy's most beautiful grape growing environments. Our cellar door, Vineria del Carmine, was awarded the Travel and Hospitality Industry Culinary 2019 Culinary Experience of the Year in Umbria.
