Type: Wineries, Food & Drink
Owner description: 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

I was here with my family and for nearly paying nothing we got to taste a bunch of wine as well as having more cheese, meat, and olives... More

My wife and I just spent 3 weeks throughout southern France and Italy and concluded that the visit to Decugnani dei Barbi was one of the highlights of the entire trip.

There are so many reasons to visit Decugnano dei Barbi- the views are amazing, the winery is so unique with the caves, Anna Rita is a fantastic host, and the wine tasting in the old church is so yummy.
