Tenuta di Salviano is an ancient property of the Corsini family since 1800. It stands on the hills overlooking Lake Corbara and is wonderfully inserted within the Tiber River Park, a protected natural area managed by the WWF.
The millenary history of the estate, tells that it was built in the 10th Century from the french family of Montemarte, on the rolling hills where the Etruscans already cultivated the vine, a few meters from the archaeological area of Scoppieto, home to ancient kilns where the Romans produced vases in sealed earth. It is still surrounded by historic vineyards whose grapes give rise to the D.O.C. Orvieto Classico and Lake Corbara. The production of wines of absolute quality, combines tradition and innovation with sustainable agriculture. Every detail of the production is treated maniacally, with absolute respect for the balance of the ecosystem.
The visit begins with an overview of the company history and the D.O.C. that are produced. From the highest point of the estate, observing the location of the vineyards, we will talk about the microclimate and the reasons that make the fruits and therefore the wines of a unique quality. The Wine Tour continues in the modern vinification and bottling plants, with a special mention to the production techniques and the path of the grapes from the vineyard to the bottle.
It will then follow the visit of the wine during its maturation phase, from the imposing concrete tanks to the barrel cellar, to finish in the cave where the Metodo Classico Spumante ferments for the second time.
At the end of the visit, we will go to the tasting room, where you will be able to appreciate the wines and the specialties of the Umbrian cuisine and tradition.
