    History of Geribi Ceramics

    Georgetown DC
The hand-painted designs on the Ceramics all over the store of Via Umbria are the brainchild of Gerardo Ribigini, who inherited the studio from his father and now shares the studio with his wife, Assunta, and their children, Federico and Claudia. Over three generations, they have sustained a family business that embodies the quality and integrity of true Italian artistry. Come learn about interesting and unique history of hte studio and Gerardo’s vision which imbues the historic designs of the Renaissance with fresh colors and modern motifs of Deruta, Umbria. Claudia and Federico will be teaming up to teach about the history of the family and their art!

The Via Umbria Family is absolutely dedicated to a total dining experience from start to finish! I loved the great stories about the origins of the food and wine being served as well as the social environment it creates. Warm and inviting ambiance, genuine caring service from the moment you walk in, authentic, fresh, passionately prepared food and a beautiful variety wines. Thank you, truly unforgettable!

This place is such a gem! One of my new favorites in Georgetown. Via Umbria offers special dinner options and wine pairings making it the perfect place for date night or a small get-together! The wine here is also fantastic! A total win for Georgetown!!!

Our Classes and Demos are a unique social, culinary and educational experience that take place with our Chef, Butcher or Mixologist. The classes will vary in size depending on the type of class and the space in which we are hosting but we strive to provide the best experience possible for our guests. Admission is $35 and will include tasting of the product you are learning to make, while additional wine or food may be purchased from the cafe or wine cellar.  

Our Classes and Demos typically begin at 7:30pm unless otherwise listed and guests are encouraged to arrive a few minutes ahead of time to allow for check-in. All guests planning to consume alcohol must have valid government-issued identification. Menus are subject to slight change due to market availability. A vegetarian option may be substituted upon sufficient notice.

Why Tickets?

All of our events are ticketed events with limited seating. Tickets are purchased in advance, on a first-come first-served basis until sold out. Events at Via Umbria are unique experiences that are carefully crafted to create an outstanding and memorable dynamic. By requiring pre-purchase of tickets, we minimize the frequency of no-shows and ensure that we create the best possible experience at the best possible price for what we offer. 

Each month’s tickets are offered for sale all at once, through our monthly event calendar, which is typically posted at least a month in advance. Event buyouts and private events are also possible. Please contact us if you are interested in more information. 

Tickets are not refundable and cannot be exchanged for a different date or time, but they are transferable to other people. Think of it like buying a ticket to a concert, baseball game, or movie. Ticket prices do not include a 10% DC Meals Tax, which will be added to your purchase, or gratuity, which is at your discretion.
