After an amazing tour of the winery with Anna Rita, my wife and I and four of our friends joined Roseanna for a cooking class, which ended in a memorable lunch. Our day at Decugnano Dei Barbi was the highlight of our week long stay in Umbria. Anna Rita and Roseanna are the best!

We had read good reviews so contacted Anna Rita, who responded quickly. The vineyard itself is stunning, as is the hall in which we ate the meal we had cooked. The kitchen area is small but immaculate. We loved what we learned to cook -- homemade pasta, focaccia, stuffed zucchini, and cookies -- and have continued to cook these dishes... More
