Great fun. What an experience! The food was scrumptious, the wine was plentiful, the host/guide informative and welcoming, and the cooking instructor absolutely endearing! Just... More

We were picked up from Orvieto at the pre-arranged time, driven through beautiful countryside, to arrive at Decugnano Dei Barbi. A tour of the winery with Anna showed us how the wines are made, and the history of the property. I couldn't quite believe how Roseanna was going to lead us through 5 dishes - but she did. - and...

It starts with excellent communication from the winery (thank you Anna Rita!!). She assisted in arranging a transport service for the 30 minute drive to the winery from town (cost 40 Euro a person). After a tour of the winery we as a group all took a part of making a meal to remember: 4 or 5 different pizzas, pasta... More

It started with great communication before our trip with Anna, she was very responsive to my emails and to accommodating our group of 3 adults and 2 children. Once we got to the winery we were in awe of the history of the land and the winery. It was a beautiful place, after our tour, we went to the cooking... More

The afternoon starts with a tour of the winery. We also walked though the vineyard to go into the ancient caves where the wine is stored. Interesting and gorgeous scenery. Then we moved into the lovely kitchen and dining room. In my opinion, this is a great cooking class because Rosanna shows us how to make fresh pasta, pizza dough,... More

The tour started with Anna Rita telling us about the history of the Barbi Family and the vineyard. She was highly knowledgable and interesting. We traveled to the production facility and eventually to the caves where the sparkling wine and barrels were stored. I highly recommend wearing shoes appropriate for a hike on a steep gravel path. After the tour... More

I stumbled on this while planning our trip to Italy. It sounded like fun, and it was a change from art and churches. It's a longish twisting, turning drive from Orvieto to Decugnano dei Barbi, but then again how many Italian roads aren't twisting and turning? It was a great afternoon. Anna Rita showed us around the winery, and then... More

We had a truly great experience at Decugnano dei Barbi. There were 7 of us-- parents in their early 60's, my husband and I in our 30's, and my younger siblings in their 20's. As we arrived, the first thing that struck us was the incredible setting: sweeping views of the countryside full of vineyards and Orvieto atop the hill... More

A multi-generational group of eight of us had a private tour of the winery followed by a highly enjoyable (and delicious) cooking class and dinner. Anna Rita, the guide, was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the winery and wine-making process. The tour was comprehensive and covered everything from the growing of grapes to the bottling and distribution of the... More
