Last Call for Panettone
Get a Delicious Italian Holiday Cake
and Pair it with Prosecco or Sparkling Wine!

They're almost gone - our enormous selection of delicious holiday panettone and pandoro are running low.  Get yours now and pair it with a bottle of Franciacorta sparking wine or delicious and festive Prosecco.  Delicious and indulgent are perfect for the holidays!


Give the Gift of Experience

Experience is the gift that keeps on giving and we've got experiences galore to give this Christmas.  Our January classes and dinners are selling out fast but our February calendar is going up soon.  Gift someone a Pasta and Dessert Class, our Weekly Wine Tastings, our Cheese of the Month Club or one of our Dinners at the Chef's Table.

Check out our Events Calendar or give 'em a Gift Card redeemable for any experience!


Experience Umbria - The Perfect Christmas Gift!

It's even better than a Georgetown experience - join us in Italy this spring or fall for our Food & Wine Tour.  Our small group week long tours are packed with unforgettable experiences.  Via Umbria owners Bill and Suzy Menard will introduce you their insider's Italy and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Our all inclusive tours are limited to 8 guests and are priced at an unbelievable €2500 per person.  But book now - our early October tour is sold out but limited space remains for our April 4-10 and our October 17-23 tours.

Say Buon Natale to someone special this year!


Santa is Coming to Town - and So is Simone!

The ever popular Simone Proietti-Pesci, chef-owner of Bevagna's Le Delizie del Borgo restaurant returns to the US this January and February.  Join him at Via Umbria for a series of special events or have him host a special dinner in your home.

For our West Coast friends, join Chef Simone and Via Umbria's #1 Son Austin Menard for a special vegetarian dinner in Berkeley, CA on January 13 or 14.
Tickets are required.  Buy yours today!
