Our Open Hearth Culture

A Passion for Service


Dedicated to the Art of Open Hearth Cooking since 1989, we are America’s most experienced and knowledgeable open hearth oven company. We pride ourselves on our customer service as much as the quality of our ovens. We’ll work with you on every facet of choosing, building, installing, and cooking with your Mugnaini oven. Our goal is to welcome our clients to the heartfelt style of cooking and entertaining that’s possible with an authentic Italian open hearth oven.

Professional chefs and homeowners regularly tell us how much they appreciate the depth of our service. The friendships we’ve formed with many of our clients, vendors, and our own staff have lasted for decades. Located in the heart of California’s Sonoma Wine Country, we’re passionate open hearth cooks ourselves. We thrive on sharing the experiences and joys of life, and started our cooking school so that both professional and home chefs can fully enjoy the incredible variety of food that can be prepared in a Mugnaini.

We Live in Sonoma Wine Country


Visitors are always welcome at our state-of-the-art showroom, cooking school, and culinary resource center in beautiful Healdsburg, CA. Pick our brains about all things Mugnaini or take a class with Andrea Mugnaini and staff. Placing our headquarters, warehouse, and production facility in Sonoma County is intentional. We work where we live, surrounded by inspiring beauty. Our showroom is open Monday-Friday 8am–5pm and features a working kitchen with 2 live ovens. Call for free consulting and plan reviews, or for oven demonstrations or Saturday appointments.

Our private cooking school three-day classes are taught on Andrea’s 30 acre vineyard in Alexander Valley just a few minutes drive from our HQ. Housed in a renovated farmhouse with indoor and outdoor ovens, an herb garden, and a vegetable garden, the grounds and vistas offer a pure wine country experience. These three-day Culinary Getaways feature accommodations at Hotel Healdsburg or Hotel Les Mars with Mugnaini private shuttle service to allow you to fully indulge your senses in all that wine country has to offer. Remember to make a visit to Mugnaini part of your wine country experience.

Where Culinary Dreams Become Reality


Our modern 15,000 sq. ft. warehouse and production facility allows us to build a better oven. Factory assembled ovens are built on-site, while our metal work is done nearby to keep production local, efficient, and reduce our carbon footprint. With over 100 ovens in stock, we offer next-day shipping on most models, and customer pickups are available by appointment.
