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

This jewel of a winery was a highlight of our 2-week trip in northern Italy. The handsome town of Orvieto, high up on a hill with grand views of the countryside, is a most worthwhile visit. Having that town as a start point of our visit to Decugnano made the whole day fantastic! Anna Rita was our tour guide from... More

We toured Tuscany for a week and this tour was our favorite. Rita was very kind and knowledgeable. I noticed that she catered to everyone's needs, regardless of what level of experience they had with wine. The grounds were immaculate and blissful. The cave was cold and dark, perfect for aging wines. We finished the tour with a wonderful food... More

We had a fabulous tour and wine paring at Decugnano dei Barbi. Even the drive from town to the winery was fun. Anna did a great job from getting us a taxi to presenting the wine paring. It was a great day in a beautiful place with fabulous wine and food. Thanks Anna.

Traveling through Tuscany and Umbria, we visited many lovely vineyards, Decugnano dei Barbi was no exception! I inquired last minute, and Anna was able to offer us two spots on a tour of the estate, as well as a food and wine pairing.
