This past August (2013) we had the great fortune to be in the Umbrian Region and spent a full day touring with Barbara of winelinkitaly. The great thing about her itineraries are that they can be customized to your taste and style. If you do not want to worry about where and what to do, leave it to her discretion. If you have specific desires and dreams about what your tour should include, she will accommodate. You will see the real flavor of the region through a local's eye. Barbara is a sommelier and very knowledgable about not only the wines of the Region, but Wine in general. She is energetic, organized and keeps things moving. If you are visiting a very touristy spot its for a very good reason...it needs to be seen. We only spent 1 day with Winelinkitaly but had 2 great meals,several wine tastings, experienced a local festival, had a lot of laughs and learned so much about the region, it's culture and the warmth of the umbrian people. You travel in a very comfortable van that is stocked with a cooler of water. Prices are very reasonable for what you get. I would highly recommend booking time with her on your trip to the region. Her knowledge of Italy, wines and culture are not limited to the Umbrian Region. She was extremely helpful in answering any questions we had regarding any aspect of our trip to the country. There is nothing more helpful than a local recommending areas that are great to stay and visit as well as places that should be avoided or not worth your time. Umbria is a beautiful region rich with culture and ancient treasures. If you are planning a visit and let Barbara of winelinkitaly help create memories that will long linger on your mind and palette.
