Museo del vino, Torgiano

The Wine Museum of Torgiano (Umbria, Italy) is a private museum, specialized and completely dedicated to the culture of wine. Located in an area of wine production, the museum was founded by the wine producers Giorgio Lungarotti, owner and founder of Cantine Lungarotti Winery and his wife Maria Grazia Marchetti in 1974 and is run, together with the Olive and oil Museum, by the Lungarotti Foundation, which promotes studies, cultural events and exhibitions aimed at enhancing the wine and olive oil economy. Through its archaeological, ethnographic and arts collections, the museum provides information on the role of wine in western culture, where wine has always been highly valued not only for its energetic and strengthening properties but also as a cultural product.

  • I was in Hong Kong the day of August with a couple of friends and I decided to visit the Wine Museum of the Lungarotti Foundation. Extremely interesting and informative tour. Beautiful artifacts and documentation specifically explained. The mansion has been beautifully restored and the show follows very well and know the history of wine from antiquity to the present day The Council to those who come to visit the territory. Applaud the Lungarotti family. With 5 Euros then we could enjoy a glass of wine at the wine shop of the Museum.

  • If you are passionate about wine, professionals or just curious about an infinite world, visit this Museum and take the time it takes to read all the notes. Immerse yourself in the shoes of the people lived in a time that seems infinitely far away, even just 50 or 100 years ago, there's always something to learn and to think about. The ticket includes a visit to the Museum of oil and a glass of wine to nearby Osteria del Museo.

  • Very nice museum with information about the history of wines in general. With wine jars, barrels, stories about old pharmaceutical use of wines. Free Audio-tours, also in English, are available and you can get a combiticket for the Wine- and Olive-oil museum. End the tour with an included wine tasting in the shop of Lungarotti next to the Museo del Vino.
  • Edited and designed carefully, it is worth visiting

  • Very nice and impressive. The internal path is a bit labirintiaco but irrelevant detail. If you go over there, is the only real attraction oil Museum in Torgiano.
