Chiara Is the CEO of the various companies forming the Lungarotti Group: the Estate “Cantine Giorgio Lungarotti Srl”, with its activities in Torgiano and Montefalco and the resort & spa “Le Tre Vaselle”. 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 under her father’s guidance, working in the various sectors in which the company is articulated, 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, she has taken annual upgrading and specialization courses in viticulture and enology - her two great passions - at the University of Bordeaux. Her specialized studies and enthusiasm have allowed her to embark upon innovations and transformations in the winery and family-owned vineyards according to avant-garde techniques.
An energetic entrepreneur, she inherited her love of the land from her father and confesses that she could recognize its scent and flavor blindfolded. Her creed is to maintain, continue and build on what has been created by her family, always careful to maintain the difficult balance between respect for tradition and experimentation of innovative techniques and models for development, guiding the companies with courage and determination through the changes which daily, and always more swiftly, are transforming the reality around us.
Alongside her professional qualities, Chiara cultivates interests in the cultural field, which, together with the other two women of the Lungarotti house, she pursues with passion, 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.
