Lungarotti and Rubesco

Founded in the early 60’s by Giorgio Lungarotti, the company soon became a driving force that opened up new opportunities not only for Torgiano but for the whole Umbria: wine as the centerpiece of a very high quality touristic and productive center, and cornerstone of a highly integrated promotional tool for the whole region.
