A territory rich in history, nature and traditions. It is known that since the time of the Etruscan civilization, Orvieto and its vast territory have been fertile and active areas for the cultivation of plants such as grapes and olives from which then, like today, are are transformed into valuable products such as wine and olive oil.
Wine in particular was very present at Etruscan banquets and its production continued in the following years with the Romans, and again in the Middle Ages and into the modern era.
