Some great authors such as Pliny the Elder and Marziale liked the qualities of Umbrian wines.

In 1960 Umbria was the protagonist of a relaunch, which in 1968 led to the awarding of the first Umbrian DOC (Torgiano DOC). Later in 1990 the DOCG (Torgiano Rosso Riserva DOCG). As time passed, Umbria continued to grow with many producers until it produced better quality.

In Umbria there are thirteen DOCs present.

Umbria is not only known for its wine. It is one of the most evocative and fascinating regions of Italy, appreciated for its historical, cultural and artistic richness as well as for its enchanting landscapes in which olive trees and vines dominate unchallenged.

Olive oil and wine are the two fundamental pillars of the region’s food and wine culture.

The climate of the region has not very cold winters and hot, dry summers, strong temperature variations, well-distributed rainfall and infrequent frosts, which make it particularly suitable for viticulture.

Umbria is the only region of peninsular Italy not to be washed by the sea. The territory is predominantly hilly, particularly suited to the cultivation of vines and olive trees.

The hilly scenery is in fact a constant feature throughout the region, in a continuous rise and fall of hills and slopes, the grey-green colors of the olive trees and vineyards interspersed with places rich in art, history and tradition.
