5. Cantina Blasi

“Dedication” is certainly the word that best characterizes the work of Cantina Blasi.

The presence of the Blasi family in this part of Umbria dates back to Bino Blasi, who was born in 1893. Starting in 2009, Didi and Mauro Blasi decided to plant vineyards and build a modern winemaking cellar, in addition to the aging cellar located in the underground of the Palazzo dei Conti Bertanzi, dating back to 1742.

Michele, who now coordinates all the work in the winery, represents the fourth generation of the family that has set the goal of leaving a strong mark on their territory.

The municipality of Umbertide, like the whole of Umbria, has an ancient winemaking tradition, yet there is no real historical record regarding the use of indigenous grape varieties different from the most well-known in the region.

For this reason, the Blasi family decided to plant some established quality Umbrian indigenous grape varieties such as Trebbiano Spoletino, Grechetto, and Sagrantino, but also focus on international grape varieties that are best suited to the microclimate and soils of their estate, such as Merlot, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc.

During your visit to Cantina Blasi, you will have the opportunity to taste many wines produced by them, from whites to sparkling wines, and savor many specialties of the estate produced locally.
