Lamborghini - Rose Merlot - Umbria
Overview: Ferruccio Lamborghini was an Italian industrialist. In 1963, he created Automobili Lamborghini, a maker of high-end sports cars in Sant'Agata Bolognese. He went to build the very first super car in the world. Born to grape farmers in Renazzo, his mechanical know-how led him to enter the business of tractor manufacturing in 1948, which quickly became an important manufacturer of agricultural equipment in the midst of Italy's post-WWII economic boom. Lamborghini sold off many of his interests by the late 1970s and retired to an estate in Umbria, where he pursued winemaking.
Traveling to Umbria, Italy, Mr. Ferruccio Lamborghini fell in love with the soft rolling hills landscape. After his retirement from the famous car manufacturing he decided to go back to his roots: being a farmer in 1968.
