Winephabet Street O is for Orvieto
Welcome to Winephabet Street Season 1 Episode 15 O is for Orvieto. Winephabet Street is a monthly series where Lori Budd of Draceana Wines and myself work our way through the alphabet exploring wine and wine regions on letter at a time. The show is live on the third Monday at 8pm and is free, but you must register to attend. Put in on your calendar, pour yourself a glass of wine and hang out with us.
September took us to Italy once again and we explored the Orvieto. Orvieto is not a grape but a a wine region in Italy located between Umbria and Lazio known for the white wines they produce. Orvieto white wine is made primarily from the 60% Trebbiano and 40% Grechetto combine
The wine I chose for this episode is 2015 Tenuta Di Salviano Orvieto Classico Superiore DOC. It’s a nice food friendly wine, nice and crisp with balanced acidity and a long finish with a bite of white spice.
Sit back with a glass of wine and join us as we explore Orvieto, the history, the wine and the food that pairs well with it. Watch the webinar or listen to the podcast.
