Cantina Donini at Mercato della Terra!

Pubblicato in data

From September 14th, Cantina Donini will take part every Saturday morning starting from 8 o’clock in Mercato della Terra in Piazza Matteotti, Umbertide. This week we will be there until 5 o’clock p.m. on the occasion of the feast Fratta dell’800.

In Mercati della Terra, organized in Italy by Slow Food, is possible to buy direct from the producers, and this permits to eliminate the intermediaries and to reduce transports, shortening in this way the supply chain. We are pleased to participate to this initiative which permits to the consumers to have a leading role and which brings them nearer to the local producers. We wait for you in Umbertide!

Torcolo with Fra Santo

Pubblicato in data

Torcolo is the typical cake made in Perugia, a simple and delicious ciambellone (a ring-like cake), which isn’t too much soft, that’s why it is usually eaten drinking a glass of vin santo or milk. Today we would like to give you the recipe of the most “rich” version of this cake, the Torcolo di San Costanzo, which is traditionally prepared on January 29th in honor of the Patron Saint of Perugia, San Costanzo.


500 gr. Flour – ½ glass milk – 150 gr. Sugar – 3 eggs (separate yolk and white) – finely grated zest of ½ lemon – 100 gr. Butter – 60 gr. Candied fruit – 40 gr. Pine nuts – 40 gr. Raisins – 20 gr. Anise seeds – a sachet baking powder for desserts


Make a dough combining flour, milk, sugar, butter, yolk eggs, candied fruit, raisins, pine nuts and anise seeds together. Add the zest of lemon, the 3 beaten eggs white and the sachet of beaking powder. Butter a baking-pan with a hole in the centre, put the dough inside, and then brush the cake with a beaten egg yolk. Bake the cake for about 40 minutes.

The event “Che gusto – L’Altotevere a porte aperte” has been a great success for the winery. Many people came to Cantina Donini on June 29 and 30 in order to taste our wines and the typical products of the territory as olive oil and cold cuts. On sunday morning many Vespa-riders of Vespa Club Fratta Umbertide came to visit us with their colorful Vespas, which are an important piece of our history, and they have brought a wave of happiness in the winery square. We’d like to thank all the people who came to visit us, see you soon!
