What you'll do

We want you to see, smell, touch and taste the elements that combine to make our wines. On arrival you’ll be welcomed by Piero, Ramona or Sarah. We’ll introduce you to the rich wine-making heritage of the Orvieto area and go on a tour of the winery. You’ll be able to walk among the vines, feel the soils in which they grow and at the right time of year, even taste the grapes. From the vineyard we’ll move to our small cellar where you’ll learn about the winemaking process for our white and red wines and the final part of your time with us will be spent in the tasting room. Here you’ll be able to gain a greater understanding of how the wines are an expression of the place in which they’re made. We’ll sample both red and white wines, together with a selection of locally made breads, cheeses and artisan salumi.

We’re Piero and Ramona, winemakers and wine enthusiasts. After years spent living in other parts of Italy we decided to return to our roots in Umbria and in 2002 founded Cantina Lapone.
Our lives have long been connected to wine; Piero’s father was a Professor of Oenology at Milan University and Ramona is a qualified sommelier certified by FISAR . The development of the winery has been a family endeavour and
we’re delighted to be able to share the story and wines of Cantina Lapone with our guests and offer an insight into life behind the label.

Fantastico! Walking at the vineyard as well as where the wine is carefully processed was the beginning. Piero shared his experience as a winemaker and showed enthusiasm for what he and Ramona have created. Then, sitting in a tasting room that looks out to the vineyard and the countryside, we tasted some fantastic wines. We felt like friends with him and the other tasting guests by the time we finished. We will always make a visit when we are in the area.

Amazing experience close to Orvieto. We had the luck of being just us two in the group and we had the best tasting ever! We received a tour with lots of explanations and a beautiful view of the countryside. The wine tasting itself was great, and there were also many bites such as cheese and ham. We really felt at home and would recommend this to everyone!

We had a group of ten and we all loved our experience. All of us, those who had done wine tastings before and those who hadn't, had an amazing time. Sarah, our guide, was very good about communicating with me before hand to make sure we didn't have any food allergies and knew how to find the winery. Would definitely recommend.
