With some of Umbria’s wine cellars cutting into hills of volcanic rock from 3,000 years ago, this has helped make their wine making more unique. They are known as the 4th smallest wine producer in Italy, yet they still have top quality DOC wines, with vineyards tracing back to the Benedictine monks, who were the first to plant them in the clay and soil.  Dr. Giorgio Lungarotti is one of the men who has made an impact in their winemaking, and in more recent times, was the first to prove that the region could produce good quality red wines.
