The New York Times: Paying Tribute to Porchetta, the Ancient Italian Pig Roast

Porchetta is a dish which is popular all over Italy as street food, almost always spotted at events like street fairs and weekly produce markets. Multiple sagras, or food festivals, are devoted to it every year. But Umbria fiercely guards its reputation as the birthplace of porchetta. […..]

“The fennel is what makes it Umbrian,” said Barbara D’Agapiti, owner of Wine Link Italy, a guide to local food and wine. Fennel grows wild here, and its pollen has the refreshing whiff of dried sage, with notes of saffron, lemon and fennel seed.

The best experience of my life!

This review is long overdue…
Finding Barbara and Wine Link Italy was a blessing. We took the 4 day Wine and Pasta tour with 2 of our closest friends and it was more than we could have ever imagined. Barbara (who we now call Babs, because she’s our new best friend!) put together a completely personalized 4 day tour of her favorite restaurants, sites, wineries, olive oils mills, and we even went to the oldest brewery in Perugia. She gets to know all of her clients before they arrive, so that she can customize every tour she gives. Everything was taken care of for us, down to the INCREDIBLE Bed and Breakfast we stayed at. (side note: you must stay at Alla Madonna Del Piatto and take one of Letizia’s cooking classes.) Every moment of our trip was so thoughtfully planned out by Babs. We were stuffed with the most delicious wine and food 24 hours a day and never had to think about what we were doing or where we were going next, not to mention we learned SO much about the history of the Umbrian region. Babs is such a wonderful person to guide you on your Italian adventure and we can’t wait to go back to Italy and see what Babs has in store for us next. Choosing Wine Link Italy will be the best decision you can make while traveling in Italy.

The best travel decision I have ever made!

Words will not be able to give proper justice to the most amazing four days we spent with Barbara in Umbria! The Pasta and Vino Tour was more than we (2 couples in their 30s) could have ever expected. The tour was adventurous yet relaxing, delicious, and extremely educational. Barbara is an expert not only of the geography of the region, but also its incredible offerings, mainly wine, olive oil, and food! She was so informative and fun to be with. I cannot wait to return to Italy and book another tour with Barbara. Highly recommended – it will be the best part of your trip.
