Orvieto has been a celebrated wine since antiquity, especially in Rome where it abounded in the dining rooms of the prelates and at the banquets of the Vatican nobility. A long history, rich in enjoyable anecdotes, such as that of Pinturicchio who, when signing the agreement for the fresco in the chapel of Santa Maria Maggiore in Orvieto, demanded a supply of 'vin d'Orvieto quantum libuerit', that is to say 'an unlimited supply of Orvieto wine', while carrying out the work! The modern story of Orvieto is closely linked to the birth of the Wine House of Luigi Bigi in 1880. Thanks to the commercial instincts of Luigi Bigi, its founder, this classic wine traveled the world acquiring approval and fame.
