A Culinary Immersion Into Wine Country Hospitality and The Enchantment of Wood Fired Cooking!

Book Now

Join Andrea Mugnaini, the industry leader in open hearth cooking, and author of the “Art of Wood Fired Cooking”. Become an expert in every aspect of managing your oven and cooking a bounty of extraordinary meals. Andrea has developed this hands-on culinary experience especially for a small group of people to enjoy Sonoma Wine Country.

Absorb the countryside with local olive oil and cheese, local wines and produce all a short distance from the school. Bringing Mugnaini back to our roots, the school is located a short distance from Mugnaini’s headquarters where the ovens are manufactured. Guests stay at a choice of luxury hotels and all levels of experience are welcome!

Not only did I learn to master my wood fired oven under the capable instruction of Andrea herself, I got to experience all that wine country has to offer.
