It was slightly more than we would typically spend on activities, but oh was it worth it! It was one of the best memories of my life. Italian wine, home-cooked Italian food, an incomparable Italian vista -... More

We all have those perfect, peaceful places in images in our minds that soothe us when sleep doesn't come to us at night, or when the world causes us to feel troubled. For me, just thinking about sitting at that splendid table, in that wonderful room, with summertime all around us and delicious food that we prepared with wines from... More

My husband and I found our way to this class through a recommendation from our agriturismo. We wanted a wine tour and cooking class, and this gave us both at once. The estate is beautiful, the instructors are knowledgeable and everything was delicious. We highly recommend this experience to anyone hoping to take in the Italian countryside.

My wife and I so enjoyed our tour and Umbrian cooking class at Decugnano Dei Barbi! Anna Rita, our expert sommelier and guide, and Rosanna, our tutor, were delightful. The grounds and vineyards of Barbi are a paradise on earth. The wines produced there are superb and memorable. Our cooking class with Rosanna was instructive, expert, and so much fun!... More
