Episode 736 Marc Millon interviews Teresa Severini of the Lungarotti winery, in this episode of Italian Food & Wine with Marc Millon on the Italian Wine Podcast.
About today’s winery:
Lungarotti Winery is a symbol of wine excellence in Umbria. Lungarotti has had a front-line role in writing the last century’s history of wine in Italy. A success story initiated by Giorgio Lungarotti, a pioneer of Italy’s modern enology and founder of the winery in Torgiano, a small town in the countryside close to Perugia and Assisi in Umbria, the green heart of Italy. A story that continues today thanks to the commitment, passion and expertise of his daughters Chiara and Teresa, his wife Maria Grazia and his grandchildren Francesco and Gemma.
Teresa Severini, born of the first marriage of Maria Grazia, has a degree in Agriculture with a Specialization at the Institute of Enology of Bordeaux University and was one of Italy’s first female enologists. As the company’s Director of Marketing and Communication for many years, she has had an unwavering dedication to the identification between product, company and territory, scrupulously analyzing consumer evolution and intercepting tastes and preferences of new potential clients. These days she is ever more active in the initiatives of the Lungarotti Foundation, fuelled by the certainty that the bond between wine and culture is crucially important. Her motto has been and continues to be: “winning the attention of young people to make them informed winelovers of the future”. Indeed, she has written a book to introduce the younger generations to the learning about and respecting vines and wine. Her unstoppable dynamism also led her to be among the founding members of the “Le Donne del Vino” association which promotes the role of women in the entire wine sector.
