Teaching programs for kids and young people to learn more about grape, and wines. These experiences are perfect for little school groups or for families.
According to the period of the year we propose specific activities to have a direct experience of the vineyards: pruning, selection of the grape, harvest and much more.
SAIO teaching farm received the patronage of Comune di Assisi for its cultural value and all the activities are run by professional educators.
The project includes also a special experience for adults called "From Vine to Glass"
