Discover Monterubiaglio and the ancient winery in the cave

Back to the exploration

Discover Monterubiaglio and the ancient winery in the cave

Discover the traditions and secrets of the village of Monterubiaglio: visit its alleys, a characteristic winery in a cave and taste wine and other typical products

Monterubiaglio is a small village in southern Umbria. It is beautifully preserved and still busy and vibrant thanks to the inhabitants who populate its houses and alleys. In the centre of the village is the piazza with its castle and, not far away, a small church. The impact is captivating and fascinating, and it is here that you can enjoy this fantastic experience.

The managers of the winery will be waiting for you in the piazza. This is where you’ll begin the first part of the experience with a small tour of the village, led by those who know it best: its inhabitants. Your guides have lived in this village for generations and, since they know every nook and cranny, no-one is better equipped to help you discover its secrets. At the end of the short tour, you will stop in the small square in front of the church for a first tasting of typical local products, all strictly selected and sourced from local producers. You will thus learn about the area’s characteristic products.

A visit to the fantastic underground winery will begin immediately afterwards. Get ready to see a real rarity! This family, bucking current trends, decided to reopen the cellar spaces of the old village winery, which for practical reasons had been abandoned. Today, demonstrating resilience and love for the area and its traditions, the managers have re-opened and revitalised them, making them operational once more. This is where the grapes harvested in the vineyards are transported, the must is fermented and the wine is aged. It would be difficult to come across anything similar elsewhere!

Inside the winery, you can find out all about the artisanal wine production techniques and even taste the wine, learning to combine it with other typical local products. In addition, a small surprise awaits you: fragments of rural art are clearly visible inside the cave: carvings of bas-reliefs in the rock walls. They depict scenes of rural life, sculpted by the grandfather of the family: he could turn his hand to all manner of work and was passionate about sculpture.
