Welcome to Episode 1235 in which Steve Raye interviews Chiara Lungarotti of the Cantine Lungarotti, in this installment of Get US Market Ready With Italian Wine People, on the Italian Wine Podcast.
About today’s guest:
Chiara is the CEO of Lungarotti. Her motto: to preserve, progress, innovate and develop, while respecting tradition and her own roots. Chiara is deeply bound to her region of Umbria and grew up with a love for her land; she entered the company in the early 1990’s flanked by her sister Teresa Severini and guided by her father, Giorgio, one of the great names of Italian winemaking. Chiara literally rose through the ranks, gaining experience that was precious when she took the helm of the Lungarotti companies at her father’s death in 1999. With a degree in Agriculture and specialization in Viticulture, her specific training and her enthusiasm are the basis of the innovation and transformation in the winery and family-owned vineyards according to avant-garde techniques. A dynamic entrepreneur, she inherited her love of the land from her father and confesses that she could recognize its scent and flavor blindfolded. Alongside her professional qualities, Chiara passionately cultivates interests in the cultural field, aware of the fundamental role that the culture of wine and olive oil have had in the development of civilization, economy, history and art, both in Umbria and in Italy. She is a Councillor of Federvini, and of Unione Italiana Vini, an Academic of Accademia della Vite e del Vino, an Auxiliary Academic of Accademia dei Georgofili of Florence and a member of the Board of Fondazione Perugia Musica Classica.
