Oil and wine in the Appenines

Discover the wines and gastronomy of Romagna, Marche and Umbria in this five night, accompanied wine tour.


James MacNay, IWA and Cinzia Long invite you on a journey of discovery, exploring the wines, winemakers and gastronomy of Romagna, Marche and Umbria. From the Adriatic to Italy’s central mountains, we are a long way from the beaten track of the Tuscan wine trail.

As well as some of Italy’s most distinctive wines – including Verdicchio, one of the great whites – these regions boast extraordinary natural beauty, a wealth of history and fabulous cuisine.



Prices start at €1995 per person, based on two sharing. There is a €300 single occupancy supplement. The final trip fee is dependent on collection and drop-off locations, the number of guests, and eventual variations to the itinerary described.
