Lungarotti is the name of one of Umbria's most important wineries. Founded in 1960 by Giorgio Lungarotti, this winery represents a landmark in wine production not only in the region but also throughout Italy. This is due to constant and careful work, dedicated to excellence that combines large numbers with the highest achievable quality. Situated in the municipality of Torgiano, the Lungarotti wine cellar today boasts a vineyard area of about 250 hectares with an annual production that exceeds two million bottles. A long tradition that is continued by Giorgio's daughters, Chiara Lungarotti and Teresa Severini Lungarotti, who administer the winery with the same enthusiasm as its origins and with constant innovation that does not, however, revolutionise the winery's history. The Lungarotti wines produced there stand out for their refinement and elegance combined with a fresh and immediate taste that make them loved by all.
