Discover the Castelli Romani on this fully private half day wine experience from Rome! The region is Lazio's best known winemaking area, and while it's name hints at an abundance of Roman castles, what you will find is a cluster of picturesque towns built around two volcanic lakes. After a stop at the scenic village of Frascati, we stop at a historic winery for tastings and a vineyard walk. Hear how the estate was once a convent and learn about the winemaking traditions that have been passed down by generations of the host family. Spend your time enjoying fine wines and accompaniments (oils, breads, cheeses, meats) after which we will drive you back to your Rome hotel.

Itinerary Details

Leave your Rome hotel and head to the hills of Castelli Romani, the Lazio region’s easy-on-the-eye winemaking area. While its name hints at an abundance of Roman castles, Castelli Romani is actually a collection of 13 extremely scenic villages in the Alban Hills, punctuated by volcanic lakes and secluded valleys.

Head on to the hamlet of Monte Porzio Catone, and visit Santa Benedetta – the oldest winery in Castelli Romani. On a tour of the rustic estate, hear how it was once a convent, and learn about the winemaking traditions that have been passed down by generations of the Benedetti family.

At this secluded little spot, sit down for your wine-tasting session, sampling three important Santa Benedetta wines – complexus, gigi and tre vecchie. Soak up the wine with a plate of local delicacies, including the winery’s extra virgin olive oil, bruschetta (pane di Lariano, an aromatic, crusty white bread), cheeses and cured meats.

After relaxing at the estate, enjoying the fine wine, food and great company, your guide will drive you back to your Rome hotel.
