The name “Decugnano” appears for the first time in 1212: it was the name given to the church of “Saint Mary of Decugnano” and the surrounding land, where grapes were grown to make wine for the clergy in Orvieto.
Claudio Barbi bought this land in 1973 as the area was famous for its exceptional wine, considered at the time one of the best produced in Orvieto. In 1978 the first Decugnano dei Barbi wine was introduced to the market. Since then it has been synonymous with innovation and quality.
Enzo Barbi joined the company in 2008, sharing with his father Claudio the same passion for wine.

Most incredible tasting wine. Pablo hosted our experience and provided such in-depth details about the history of the vineyard and how wines are made. The tour is a must for it provides a deeper insight, the land, the air, the views.... Pablo wealth of knowledge and anecdotal details made the tour so valuable. My wife and I have a greater respect for the level of effort that goes into the creation of a magnificent tasting wines. Touring the caves while hearing the stories how Dom Perignon came upon the creation of bubbly wine only makes it all taste better Great job Decugnano dei Barb!
My friends and I stopped here for a wine tasting on our way to Tuscany. We are so glad we did! My friend booked it for the view, but we got so much more! Clara was a fantastic host. The tour of the winery was informative without being being over the top and snobby. After a nice visit to the wine cellar in the cave constructed by the monk, we had our tasting in a beautiful room with the best view! The wine was excellent! Clara paired it with a variety of meat, cheese and bread. Two of the people in our group were vegetarians and they accommodated this request last minute. The location and property would be a great place to hold an event!
