Torgiano is located about 10 miles from Perugia. Probably founded by the Etruscans, Torgiano is situated on a hill overlooking the confluence of the Chiascio and Tiber rivers. In Roman times it was called Turris Amnium. Torgiano was the first winemaking area in Umbria to obtain the DOC mark (Denomination of Origin) in 1968. In 1990 the Vino Torgiano was also certified as DOCG (Guaranteed Denomination of Origin). The town is a member of the Strada dei Vini del Cantico. Also well known products from Torgiano are olive oil, terracotta, lace and embroidery. One of the most inventive and progressive winemakers of Torgiano, Giorgio Lungarotti, together with his wife Maria Grazia, set up a foundation and conceived and created the Wine Museum, which opened in 1974 for the first time. The Olive Oil Museum in Torgiano is also part of the Lugarotti foundation.
