For over eight centuries "Decugnano" has been used to indicate the name of the land of the estate. The soil rich in fossils, oysters and shells, the micro climate and a wide temperature range are all factors particularly suitable for wine growing. Beside a very modern cellar, the visitor has the possibility to admire the Etruscan caves, today utilized for the production of the sparkling wine "spumante" and to mature certain wines in barrels. Within spectacular scenery, the Estate organizes guided tours to their cellars followed by wine tasting and local delicacies. WE ARE OPEN! Saturday & Sunday

Great tour and tasting with Anna-Rita. Lovely to see an old-school, traditional winery in such a naturalistic setting. Anna-Rita's wine and food pairings were revelatory--I've been to many wine-tastings but none so thoughtfully paired with food.

Our group of 8 adults and 7 young children had a fantastic visit to Decugnano dei Barbi for a tour and tasting. We all loved seeing the caves where the champagne-style wine is made, and the food and wines served were excellent. The views were incredible as well.
