Back in 1962, Giorgio Lungarotti decided to specialize his family estate in viticulture and wine-making. Since then, Cantine Lungarotti (Torgiano, PG) has become Umbria’s symbol of excellence in Italy and worldwide. Today the group, still a family business with about 100 employees, is guided by Chiara Lungarotti (CEO since 1999) and her sister Teresa. Two hundred fifty hectares of vineyards between the Torgiano and Montefalco estates, 28 labels and 2.4 million bottles produced annually, exported to 50 countries worldwide. The Wine Museum of Torgiano, created by Lungarotti Foundation and opened in 1974 has been reviewed by the New York Times as the “best in Italy” thanks to the quality of its art collections and scope of its displays. A pioneer of wine tourism, the company’s hospitality department organizes winery experiences, while Le Tre Vaselle fivestar Resort & Spa (undergoing renovations in 2017) and Poggio alle Vigne Agritourism properties offer premium accomodations.
