The Cantine Lungarotti is a wine production house that has its center of activity in Umbria, between Torgiano and Montefalco. The company was born in Torgiano in 1962 on the initiative of Giorgio Lungarotti, an agricultural entrepreneur who, consistently with the most innovative winemaking trends of the time, works to enhance local vines, in some cases recovering those that disappeared following the phylloxera epidemic of the late nineteenth century, in others introducing new species and experimenting with new production systems in the vineyard as in the cellar. After the first awards (the attribution of the DOC mark dates back to 1968, first for Umbria and fifth in Italy, for the Rosso and Bianco di Torgiano and in 1990 the DOCG for the Torgiano rosso riserva), the Cantine Lungarotti is open to the international market. They are also distinguished by an important cultural investment that results in the establishment in Torgiano of a museum center consisting of the Wine Museum and the Olive and Oil Museum, both managed by a foundation dedicated to research and the enhancement of the culture of wine in Italy. In recent years, Cantine Lungarotti has expanded its field of action with the plant in Montefalco of a winery dedicated to the vinification of the local Rosso and Sagrantino.
