The region of Umbria in central Italy is one of Italy’s smallest and the only landlocked region on the peninsula. Dominated by the Appenines, its rolling verdant hills and spectacular scenery have inspired some of the country’s finest art and spirituality, not to mention food and wine.

Chiesa del Carmine is the ancient church on the Carmine Estate, located at the foot of Monte Tezio in a protected valley, where the wildlife is abundant and nature is thriving. The views from all aspects are stunning. To the south is Monte Subasio and the town of Assisi, to the west the ancient castle of Antognolla and to the north woodlands and the mountains ranges of the Appenines.

The Carmine estate has been lovingly restored and includes an ancient olive grove, a truffle wood and pasture and 5.7 hectares of vineyards, all farmed organically.  Trebbiano Spoletino, although part of the ubiquitous Trebbiano family, is found only in Umbria, especially in the townships of Spoleto.
