Azienda Agricola Montemelino
Cantina e Vini
Montemelino is a small organic farm on the shores of Trasimeno lake: a land that has been cultivated with vines and olive trees since the time of the Etruscans. The special microclimate offered by the lake, surrounded by rolling hills, has favoured quality productions: the DOC region is characterized by Sangiovese, Ciliegiolo and Gamay del Trasimeno for red wines, Trebbiano and Grechetto for white wine. Montemelino is a family-run farm that has been producing quality wines and extra virgin olive oil since 1961: the winery is part of our house. We are fortunate to be in places of rare beauty on the border between Umbria and Tuscany in a landscape of small villages and tranquillity. We have turned the farmhouses into apartments for those who want to spend their holidays in the green heart of Italy.
