Located in the heart of Etruscan Umbria, a land marked by agricultural and oenological culture, the winery is the result of the efforts of the winemakers of the coastal municipalities of Lake Trasimeno, and is today one of the most important Umbrian wine cellars.
Over time the structure of the Cantina del Trasimeno has expanded and has acquired a fundamental role for the agriculture of the territory coming to vinify almost 12,000 tons of grapes in the early 80s.
After a phase of downsizing linked to the progressive aging of the vineyards, the winery wanted to focus decisively on high quality wines renewing the vineyards and making use of the most advanced technologies available.
In this context the “Duca della Corgna” line was born. This line takes its name from Ascanio della Corgna, Duke of Castiglione del Lago as well as captain of fortune, architect and military engineer who, with his deeds, between the 16th and 17th centuries, made these places known throughout Europe.
Today Cantina del Trasimeno is a cooperative of 200 members for a total area of about 300 hectares.
The use of rigorous agronomic techniques in the vineyard, the decisive technological innovation in the winery and the technical contribution of serious and qualified professionals are the ingredients that make this cooperative winery one of the most interesting realities of the Trasimeno area and of the national enological panorama.
The production is organized in order to control every phase of the production cycle, from the countryside to the winery: the production of the grapes up to the harvest, the vinification, the maturation of the wine both in wood and in steel, the bottling, the refinement in the bottle.
