Ranked #8 of 64 things to do in Orvieto
Certificate of Excellence

Attraction details
Owner description: For over eight centuries "Decugnano" has been used to indicate the name of the land of the estate. 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

“Fantastic 2 hours at a great winery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012

We decided to stop at Decugnano dei Barbi after reading reviews on Tripadvisor and we were glad we did! Anna Rita gave us a great tour of the winery. We learned about the history of the winery and the wine making process for red, white and spumante wines. The food and wine pairing at the old church chapel was great. The assortment of food paired with the 3 wines would have made a king proud. Thank you Anna Rita for great experience!

“An amazing experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2012

We visited the location at the end of our holiday in Orvieto. It was a phantastic experience. Anna Rita provided us with al the details of the estate including its' past. After the tour, we were taken to the wine tasting where we experienced 3 wines (brut, white, red) incl nice foods. We bought some wines as to recall the experience at home again. An absolute must for everybody visiting Umbria! Many thanks to Anna Rita and her colleagues.

“Anniversary Tour & Tasting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2012

Can't say enough about our afternoon at Decugnano die Barbi and Anna Rita. I surprised my wife of 10 years with a private tour and private tasting of food and local produce our our anniversary. We were passing thru via private car on our way from Florence to Rome. Anna Rita gave us a custom tour of the grounds and Etruscan caves where the Spumante and other wine is kept. It made for a very unique and romantic experience. Anna Rita is awesome and made us feel at home. They have incredible grounds and accommodations including a swimming pool. Our private tasting was on the deck of the chapel and overlooking the pool/gardens. Thank you, Anna Rita. We hope to come back to visit but with friends next time. Ciao!

“Best Wine Tour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2012

This wine tour was the best we have ever been on! We had a reservation booked ahead of time and the tour lasts 2 hours. Anna Rita does a fantastic job explaining the different parts of the wine making process and it's really cool to go into the cave and see the wine storage. The vineyard is also in a beautiful location and the surrounding scenery is fantastic. After our tour we went into the old church to try the wines. Anna Rita had a feast prepared for us and the food and wine pairing was fantastic. We didn't leave hungry that's for sure! She was also generous with the wine pour so you got to try more then a little sip which was great. We decided to purchase a few bottles to take with us and were amazed at how reasonable the prices were. Overall a fantastic visit and I highly recommend a stop if you are going to be in the area!

“A great day in the country”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2012

What a great few hours at this beautiful winery. not the easiest place to find but well worth the journey. You must call in advance to make a reservation or you will not get past the gates. We had a terrific guide she was well aquainted with the winery and a great host. Make sure you ask for Anna Rita when make your reservation.

Dear Mitch F,

Thank you for pointing out to our reader that tours are by appointment only. Clients can tour everyday of week, but obviously we need to organise the tour and cannot have someone waiting for costumers to turn up unexpectedly. We will not leave anyone outside the gate, but it will difficult to accommodate a personalise tour without at least one hour warning.
Mitch I am glad I could tour you.....thank you so much for dedicating time to tell other travellers.

Ciao
