Chances are good you already know who Ferruccio Lamborghini is. Think expensive, luxurious Italian cars! Well, it turns out, after he got out of the lucrative car manufacturing business, this man set his sights on the world of agriculture.
We already know how successful the company was at making classy sports cars, but how well did they do when it came to manufacturing spirits?
There is no better place to open your own winery than the foothills of Italy. So, of course, someone with enough money to purchase 247 acres of land just because he likes it will do exactly that.
Not only did Ferruccio purchase this land, but he also turned it into one of the most notorious wineries around. He passed the Lamborghini winery down to the next generation, which is keeping his memories and dreams alive.

History of Lamborghini Wine
In the mid-1960s, Ferruccio Lamborghini rolled out his first line of powerful, beautiful, finely tuned sports cars with the intention of competing for popularity over other top-of-the-line manufacturers, such as Ferrari.
While building his automotive business, Ferruccio also indulged in his love for agriculture and fine wines during a trip to Umbria in the late 1960s. It was here he purchased 100 hectares of land, using 32 hectares for farming and a winery.
The rest of the property is dedicated to a beautiful and upscale golf course, lodging, and other facilities used to create a quaint getaway for the family and guests.
Lamborghini’s car collection did very well over the first decade or so, then started to plummet in sales by 1973. It was at this time Ferruccio decided to sell his company and retire from the business, focusing on his family roots in farming.
How Is Lamborghini Wine Made?
Lamborghini Wine, or Lambo wine as many call it, is made from the finest grapes in the area. The company first started out with vineyards full of red and white grapes, crafting wines such as Merlot, Sauvignon, classic Sangiovese, and Ciliegiolo.
In the 1990s, Ferruccio’s daughter Patrizia took over her father’s company, running the day-to-day operations and keeping the winery producing exquisite wines to offer the same high-quality products as her father.
After the company changed hands from one generation to the next, the white grape vines were removed and replaced with Sangiovese and Merlot.
The Lamborghini Wine Logo
Lamborghini needed a logo to match the upscale image his legacy and reputation put forth in all the family’s business endeavors. What better way to showcase his success and the high-end quality of his wine than with a bull!
Ferruccio chose the bull emblem after visiting the famous Spanish breeder of fighting bulls, Seville Range of Don Eduardo Miura. It was his love of bullfighting that encouraged him to create the logo found on all of his products today.

How to Tell if Your Lamborghini Wine Has Gone Bad
If you are right at the end of the allotted days after popping the cork on your Lamborghini wine, there are a few ways to check it to see if it has already gone bad.
- See if there has been a change in color.
- Check for the aroma of vinegar.
- Look for bubbles. If bubbles begin to form at the bottom of the bottle, it is a pretty good indication that the wine has gone sour.
- Take a little sip. If all else fails and you are still unsure if your wine has gone bad, you can take a small sip from the bottle to see if there is still a fancy flavor or if your wine tastes like spoiled juice.
