Description
SAIO isn't just a regular wine shop. Call in advance, and the wine shop will organize a picnic basket light meal for guests to wander through the walking trails around their vineyards.

SAIO Wine Shop is the "headquarter" of our family farm.
We produce quality wine and evoo 800 m from the basilica of S. Francis in Assisi.
I love to welcome people and share my love for nature, wine, vine growing and art, tha's how I thought to create the experience "Pic nic in the Vineyards"!
We also propose wine tasting and lunch in the wine tasting room and outside, Apprentice Vinegrower Courses and special experiences for little kids classes.
A new project is coming too: you can adopt your olive tree looking to Assisi...Stay tuned! ;)

I had wanted to go on a wine tasting in Umbria but all the trips were either super expensive or booked up. When I discovered that SAIO was almost down the street, I jumped at the chance. It was late in the season but the weather was perfect for a vineyard walk with picnic. I had the vineyard to myself! Along the walk there are several information points explaining how this small family vineyard produces its wine in addition to general facts about wine making. The highlight for me was the picnic in the terrace with a stunning view of Assisi, a bottle of SAIO wine, bread, cheese, meat and biscotti--perfect.
Agnese is very kind and knowledgeable and a joy to meet.

If you are in the area around the end of May make sure to visit during "Cantine aperte" a festival during which many wineries in Umbria open their doors to visit and offer (for free or little money) great spreads of food and wine

The wine here (just in front of Assisi, minutes from Perugia) is very good, but what I love about SAIO is their walking trail/picnic lunch. Call in advance if you can (Agnese speaks completely fluent English) and book a picnic tour. Arrive at the appointed time, grab a translation of the Italian signs posted in front of each varietal, and head out on the wandering trails through their vineyards. Not only are you surrounded by a ridiculously gorgeous landscape, but you've got the Basilica of St. Francis off in the distance. If you walked straight there, the picnic table where your picnic lunch will be waiting (Umbrian cured meats, cheeses, bread and sweets ... and of course Saio wine) is no more than 10 minutes, but you can take an hour to slowly meander through the ridiculously picturesque vineyards and olive groves. I've spent *a lot* of time in Umbria, and this picnic was one of the most fun and romantic things I think I've ever done in my life.
