My family which includes 3 teenagers and my 73 year old mother and husband day tripped from Rome in April for this wine tour and cooking class. Ana Rita and Roseanna are extremely gracious hosts.

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

The costs are high if the class is exclusive for two guests only, however considering a... More

Our visit to Decugnano dei Barbi was certainly a highlight of our holiday in Italy. We are a family of five, with children aged 13,11 and 8, and when our taxi arrived at the end of the day, none of us wanted to leave! The grounds of the estate are idyllic, with views of Orvieto in the distance. Anna Rita... More

If you are staying in Umbria - particularly near Orvieto or in the vicinity - I would highly recommend this one-of-a-kind and memorable cooking class/tour of the Decugnano Dei Barbi wine estate. Be warned - The drive to the estate is through a rural and winding road that takes you up into the hills, but you are rewarded at the... More

We had a fantastic time at Decugnano Dei Barbi. Anna has a wealth of knowledge and passion - about Orvieto, the vineyard itself and wine in general. She was a brilliant guide. The tour was fascinating, the cooking was lots of fun, and the food and wine were delicious.
