A Highlight of Italy
Dec 2019
An afternoon well spent! Beautiful property; special wine; and the cooking class and end product (our meal!) were delectable. Maurizio was a terrific host and Ileana a dream in the kitchen!

Fun cooking and wine tasting (plus plenty of laughs)
Nov 2019
Our group of 3 couples really enjoyed this winery tour / cooking class combination. Maurizio was an excellent tour guide with jokes for days and a neat perspective on the Umbria region. The recipes turned out great and the chef helped cater to our dietary restrictions. It was a highlight of our trip.

It wasn't the best!
Oct 2019
We didn't have quite the time others talked about. We had a very long, boring, detailed wine tasting tour! Then our cooking class wasn't very hands on, only a few things to do and a few people did it, the rest of us watched. I was interested in the part that happens in the kitchen and we were at a table in the dining room. Our first course was potato pizza, they said it's famous in Umbria, yet I've never seen it on the menu and it wasn't very tasty. The veal was boiled and I thought wow that is going to be tough and it was. The pasta and mushroom dish was good and the wine was good. The event lasted waaay longer than it should have. I did message the customer service manager and she was sweet and apologized and said they hired someone new but that doesn't make our event any better. They may need to work closer with their employees or maybe they should be a little more involved themselves!

Dear maddy6046, Thank you for feedback, in many years of cooking classes you are the only person to have complained. We are sorry you did not enjoy the class, however did not help to arrive late despite my directions and warning. We are constantly trying to improve the quality of our service and the entire team has been warned. Until recently I was personally involved in the class, unfortunately I cannot anymore for health problems. We all take our job very seriously and we will make sure to meet everyone needs as we have done so far. Kind regards Anna Rita

One of the highlights of our trip!
Sep 2019
My mom really wanted to do a cooking class while we were in Italy. I wasn't so sure, but signed us all up. I have to say - it was one of the highlights of our entire trip.

Pablo was our tour guide and gave us an informative and very entertaining (funny guy!) tour of the winery. I've been on quite a few winery tours, but learned so much more on this one and laughed along the way. We then had our cooking class with Iliana who was so cute and fun. She didn't speak English which made it even more authentic as Pablo translated our instructions. We then sat down to enjoy our meal with wines paired to each course. The food and wine was delicious and we went home with a few bottles. Thank you!

Fantastic Day!!!
Sep 2019
From start to finish both Pablo & Iliana helped to make our day at Decugnano Dei Barbi a very happy, memorable one.
Pablo gave us a very interesting, informative and entertaining wine tour. He taught us about wine making and kept it fun. After a tour of the winery he joined us in the kitchen, for our cooking class. Here, Iliana taught us how to make a full course meal, where it was a 'hands on' experience. There were 6 in our group, and they got every one of us involved in the process. After the cooking was finished, we sat down in their picture perfect dining room, and enjoyed a lovely meal with wine pairing for each course. Great day and one to be remembered! Thank you Decugnano Dei Barbi!!

Stunning and informative
Sep 2019
My wife and I led two different tour groups to the winery for tours and cooking classes. I wholeheartedly recommend this experience. Our tour guide Pablo was sincerely charming and informative.

Our Chef instructor Iliana was clearly was experienced while being patient and cheerful. Her English skills are limited, but that doesn't impact the course at all, as Pablo is always nearby to translate or relay instructions.

In the cooking class you will prepare and eat a lovely selection of local foods, and get the recipes so you can make them at home, too!

Be aware that the drive is a little daunting, just follow your instructions or GPS and you'll be at the gate with no problems. I promise that the tour, the view and the wine is totally worth the drive

Orvieto, food, and wine
Sep 2019 • Friends
Spectacular setting for an introduction to winemaking in the heart of Italy. Our tour guide, Pablo, was nice and knowledgeable. He clearly had a passion for wine and Italy. Our wine tasting was in a former chapel on the property. We sampled 5 wines and learned,about each. We moved to the kitchen to prepare a 5 course meal under the watchful eye of Leana, our chef. Learned some new,to-s and techniques. The food was great! Afternoon well spent, nice break from touring.

Absolutely perfect!
Sep 2019 • Couples
My husband and I visited for our 4 year anniversary and our birthdays! I communicated with the winery for several months leading up to the trip. They were VERY responsive and informative.

Now to the heart of the experience. I could not have asked for a better experience with them. Not only was Pablo incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about wine and the winery, his spirit made the whole tour a blast. We walked and talk for close to two hours and learned so much! We samples grapes and saw the cellars!

The class was on its own level. Iliana was the most beautiful person we have ever met! She took her time with us, laughed with us, and spoke to us (even though we couldn’t understand anything). Pablo was an excellent translator! He took pictures with my camera the whole class and served and educated us.

I also asked them to have a birthday cake there to surprise my husband for his 30th birthday. They had candles and even sang to him.

This experience was beyond words and we will be visiting again. It was the HIGHLIGHT of our trip to Italy. Thank you SO MUCH for everything you all did for us.

Be aware that you have to take a cab out there! If you want to cab from the top of Orvieto, make sure you leave some extra time. (The funicular was late and there were no taxis available at the bottom).

Absolutely wonderful. ♥️

Cooking Class & Vineyard Tour Was Amazing!!
Jun 2019 • Friends
Myself, my mom, and my sister has a wonderful visit to the Decugnano Dei Barbi winery and estate in June 2019. We took a vineyard and cave tour first and our guide Pablo was funny and super hospitable. We got to see caves on the property where monks were making wine in the 12th century! Later we began a cooking class where a wonderful local woman named Ilana taught us to make pizza, pasta, stuffed zucchini, and biscotti cookies all from scratch. Everything was clean, the ingredients were fresh, and the location for the class was absolutely breakthaking as we looked out on the vineyard with fresh air blowing through the room. Then we ate the food we made as a 4 course dinner with a wine pairing for each course. Not only would we come back, we would do the whole experience again and bring the rest of our family, because it was one of the best of our lives!
