From The TV Show: Goat-Cheese in Umbria

In the Umbria episode of the first season of Dream of Italy on PBS, Kathy visits Diego Calcabrina’s goat farm to taste some local goat cheese.

Goat-cheese is becoming increasingly popular in Umbria, thanks in part to the cheese production of Diego Calcabrina and his 150 goats. Visitors are welcome at Calcabrina’s goat farm near Bevagna but should contact him in advance at A goat cheese tasting with seven or eight selections as well as tastings of Diego’s wines can be arranged for 20€ per person. Diego produces the wines Foglio 11 (Sagrantino) and Foglio 61 (Sangiovese) which can be purchased in the U.S. at For more information, visit:
