Hotel Umbria: the history of Hotel Giò
The project was born in 1992, when we inaugurated our first thematic resort hotel, dedicated to wine. For the rooms’ furniture we took inspiration from the national and international wineries, the hall’s décor was inspired to a cellar and to an old country house. Due to the presence of the gastronomic department store, we pointed out the importance of wine in our restaurant: our sommelier has always been taking care of the bottles selection. In our wine menu there are 1.000 labels, from all over the world. We were among the first ones to serve wine by the glass, we began to organize taste workshops and we go on making it, we play the game of “5 glasses/the ghost wine” with our guests. Last but not least we organize meetings with the chef and thematic events, among them dinners dedicated to rice, bluefish, and codfish.
