    Umbria Italy region

    Umbria wine region Umbria is bounded in the east by the Apennines and, in the north-west by Tuscany, and in the south-west by Lazio. Umbria is one of only five regions in Italy that does not have any coast, being a fairly small region in the interior. Umbria's history of wine-making goes back some time but the area has not always been associated with quality wines. The climate here is difficult to cope with (very cold winters and extremely hot summers).
