Strada del Vino Etrusco-Romano

The main route of the Strada dei Vini Etrusco-Romana passes through the DOC (Denomination of Controlled Origin) wine production zones of Orvieto and Amelia. For the wines of Orvieto, the DOC whites: Orvieto Classico, Orvieto Classico Superiore, Orvieto, Orvieto Superiore, and the DOC reds: Orvietano and Lago di Corbara. For the wines of Amelia, the DOC whites: Colli Amerini and Malvasia, and the DOC reds: Rosso, Rosso Superiore, Rosato and Novello. Among the IGT (Typical Geographic Indication) there are: “Umbria”, “Allerona”, “Narni”, “Stroncone”, “Montecastrilli”, “Penna in Teverina”, and “Sangemini”.

Traveling the Etruscan-Roman wine route that unwinds through the territory of the province of Terni, in the lands of the Etruscans and Romans divided by the Tiber River, one takes a dive into history. The name and logo themselves sum up the cultural roots that distinguish this territory: the Roman culture with the head of Germanicus of Amelia and the Etruscan culture with the head of the child from the Etruscan frescoes of the Golini tomb in the area of Orvieto.

The road’s itinerary does not only consist of wine cellars, vine-growers and wine-makers, but it is also connected with the historic, artistic, and environmental beauties and with the offering of the traditional and certified flavor chain, from oil production, which boasts the DOP (Protected Designation of Origin) Umbra hallmark, to organic farming products, typical local products, and artistic handicrafts. A special set of regulations oversees the quality of the tourist offering by the members: viticulturalists, farms, hotels, restaurants, artistic craftsmen, etc.

The Province of Terni has made the San Giovanni complex of Orvieto an acknowledged wine shop of regional interest, as a new   instrument    for the vine and wine promotion in the province and throughout the region; the same complex will house the “Accademia del Gusto” (Flavor Academy), the purpose of which will be to enhance and promote the entire food and wine chain. It is a project that integrates well with the training activity carried out in Amelia by the “Scuola dell’Alimentazione” (Nutrition School), the headquarters of which is in Palazzo Petrignani.
