    MELT Fondue Fest

    Georgetown DC
It’s cold outside, so we are taking it upon ourselves to warm you up, and according to science there is no better way than with melted cheese! Join us for our 3rd annual MELT event, DC’s biggest and best fondue party. With four different stations throughout the store, we’ll be exploring many different incarnations of melty goodness - including traditional Alpine fondue, Italian Fonduta, homemade Queso and even a surprise inclusion of the famous Grana Padano wheel of cheese! We’ve got your hankering for melted cheese covered, so come warm up with us and pick up your ticket today!


Wednesday, February 28th, 2018 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

    Say Cheese!

    Georgetown, DC - VIAUMBRIA

    There's no such thing as too much cheese, and that's a motto we live by! Join our Cheese Club, or come by for our Cheese of the Month events to taste exquisite and unique cheeses paired to perfection by our talented Cheesemonger. Check out our calendar to stay on top of this cheesy goodness!


The Via Umbria Family is absolutely dedicated to a total dining experience from start to finish! I loved the great stories about the origins of the food and wine being served as well as the social environment it creates. Warm and inviting ambiance, genuine caring service from the moment you walk in, authentic, fresh, passionately prepared food and a beautiful variety wines. Thank you, truly unforgettable!

This place is such a gem! One of my new favorites in Georgetown. Via Umbria offers special dinner options and wine pairings making it the perfect place for date night or a small get-together! The wine here is also fantastic! A total win for Georgetown!!!

The Cheese of the Month Club is a club that meets once a month in the Via Umbria’s Laboratorio Kitchen. Cheese of the Month Club members enjoy free admission and may purchase an additional guest ticket for the discounted price of $15 while open non-member admission is $25. Membership fees are $150 for 6 months but also includes ½ pound of our featured cheese to take home (if you can’t make the party, we’ll hold it for you), a provided tasting booklet to track and build your cheese knowledge over time and of course time spent in the company of fellow cheese heads! 

Our Cheese of the Month club typically meets at 7:30pm unless otherwise listed and guests are encouraged to arrive a few minutes ahead of time to allow for check-in. All guests planning to consume alcohol must have valid government-issued identification. Menus are subject to slight change due to market availability. A vegetarian option for any food paired with the tastings may be substituted upon sufficient notice. 

Why Tickets?

All of our events are ticketed events with limited seating. Tickets are purchased in advance, on a first-come first-served basis until sold out. Events at Via Umbria are unique experiences that are carefully crafted to create an outstanding and memorable dynamic. By requiring pre-purchase of tickets, we minimize the frequency of no-shows and ensure that we create the best possible experience at the best possible price for what we offer. 

Each month’s tickets are offered for sale all at once, through our monthly event calendar, which is typically posted at least a month in advance. Event buyouts and private events are also possible. Please contact us if you are interested in more information. 

Tickets are not refundable and cannot be exchanged for a different date or time, but they are transferable to other people. Think of it like buying a ticket to a concert, baseball game, or movie. Ticket prices do not include a 10% DC Meals Tax, which will be added to your purchase, or gratuity, which is at your discretion.

Tickets can be purchased online or by calling us at (202) 333-3904 or emailing us at
