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 « less

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. We'd been to another tasting before this one where you were basically given crackers to cleanse your palate with between wines.... More

We combined a trip out to Decugnano dei Barbi with our day trip to Orvieto from Rome. The trip to Decugnano dei Barbi was outstanding and an absolute highlight of the day.

We visited Decugnano dei Barbi in late September, and it was one of the highlights of our extended week end stay in Umbria. I had visited the place a couple of times earlier to buy wine but now I took my friends there for a proper wine tour, including a visit to the vineyards, wine cellars, wine processing facilities and...

I visited the beautiful estate in August, with my girlfriend on the way back from Rome. The place is marvellous, starting from the nature. It has a beautiful view, catching history and serious production unit. The thousands of years old cellars where the wine is kept are astonishing. Our hostess Anna Rita and her welcoming warmness, good English and knowledge... More

I have been on many winery tours in Napa and Sonoma, and Decugnano dei Barbi was my first Italian winery tour. I had a great afternoon with Anna learning about the prosecco-making process, and enjoying a laid-back sampling of wines, cheeses, and different bruschetta. I have been trying to buy more of their vino rosso after returning to the States,... More
