About the Winery

Blood of the bull with the land in his blood. Lamborghini finds his way back home to agriculture.

Back to Lamborghini roots

Anyone who knew Ferruccio Lamborghini will remember his creativity and his sense of aesthetics (just think of his famous sports cars).  

So it’s no wonder to learn that in the 60s, struck by the harsh and sweet landscape at the same time, he chose Umbriato to retire from the famous car business and return to his origins: agriculture and farming.


The Lamborghini estate lies between the south side of the Trasimeno lake and the beautiful medieval village of Panicale.

Situated on the border between Umbria and Tuscany, Cortona and the Chiana valley are only few kilometres away from the estate.

During his travels to the area, Ferruccio, fell in love with the soft rolling hills and picturesque landscape, purchasing the property in the 60’s.

He started to plant different grape varieties both red and white; beyond the traditional Sangiovese and Ciliegiolo the choice went also to Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, unusual varieties at that early stage.

The winery today

In the middle of the 90’s Patrizia Lamborghini succeeded in the management of the estate pursuing, and even strengthening, that ambition of making quality, premium Italian wines that her father had in the past.
