Prized vines growing in hundreds of rows are one of the most common features of the hills in the province of Perugia, where the evolution of cultivation methods has led to the production of excellent wines. The appellation D.O.C.G., D.O.C. or I.G.T. is a reward for the very high quality achieved. The first documents regarding wine-making date back to the Middle Ages, but the history of wine is much older, dating back as early as Etruscan and Roman times.
The areas where D.O.C.G., D.O.C. and I.G.T. red and white wines are produced and stored in specialised wine cellars, are:
in the province of Perugia
Colli Perugini wines, Colli Martani wines, Colli del Trasimeno wines, Montefalco wine, Torgiano wine, Assisi wine.
in the rest of Umbria
Colli Amerini wines, Lago di Corbara wines, Orvieto wines
