Chiesa del Carmine

Boutique winery and organic farm estate in one of Italy's most beautiful valleys

About the winery
Our work in the vineyard is uncompromising and respectful of nature and our wines are made simply and traditionally. Organic farming guidelines are followed in producing them . We have low-cropped vineyards and no irrigation to concentrate the flavours of the fruit as they take advantage of the plentiful sunlight and rich, rocky soils in one of Italy’s most beautiful grape growing environments. This painstaking work and soil itself produce the complexity and natural minerality we are so proud of in our wines. Every year our wines grow in structure and complexity. We believe that the sustainable practices in both the vineyards and the winery have played a significant factor in producing wines that are already receiving critical acclaim and increasingly being enjoyed all over the world. Visitors to Vineria del Carmine / Cellar door can participate in guided tastings and tours with our bi-lingual certified sommeliers, take part in a truffle hunt or join a cooking class with our Chef.

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.
