Scenic, delicious, fun, friendly and informative

Our hostess (Agnes) was very nice and informative. The wine-tasting was instructive and tasty. The walk through the vineyards on our own was appreciated and a lot of fun (including the tasting of grapes on the vine). The gazebo provided a great area to rest and a splendid view of Assisi. The food was plentiful and delicious. The service was excellent. Unfortunately it was a very windy day, but that almost added to the fun.

This was a great way to spend time with a local person and their family! We learned to cook a recipe but, more importantly, our host opened her house and her family to us, we chatted about everything under the sun and we had a great evening! Highly recommended! Thank you!

It was lovely!
