The winery is located in the municipality of Torgiano in the Italian region of Umbria. The history of this traditional family goes back 300 years. The estate was taken over in the early 1960s by the Umbrian wine legend Giorgio Lungarotti (1910-1999). In 1936 he had completed his studies in agricultural economics with a thesis on modern viticulture techniques. In the 1970s, after extensive experiments with high quality standards, he laid the foundations for the DOC classification of the Torgiano area. Today the farm is managed by his daughters Teresa Severini and Chiara Lungarotti. Lungarotti Società Agricola also owns the Azienda Agricola Stomennano, located in Tuscany
A foundation is responsible for a wide range of cultural activities and runs two museums, among others. These are "Museo del Vino" (artifacts and information about 5,000 years of wine history) and "Museo dell'Olivo e dell'Olio" (olive growing). The management is in the hands of Maria Grazia Marchetti Lungarotti. There are two production companies (estates). The wine cellar of Torgiano was built in 1962 and enlarged in the following decades. The wine cellar of Montefalco was built in 2000 in the style of a country house. The ground floor is used for celebrations and weddings. In the cellar rooms the vinification of the wines takes place.
