A day trip to Frascati Wine Road from Rome with Tasting & Lunch
At Frascati train station, your guide will meet you. After introductions, you’ll walk through the shops and “botteghe” of Frascati with your guide and sommelier. You will taste local specialties all along the way.
Visit the oldest bakery and tavern in town for jug wine, biscotti fresh out of the wood-fired oven, and roasted pork (porchetta).
Old means hundreds of years old yet still adhering to the age-old traditions that render their products unlike any other. Be sure to leave plenty of room as the best is yet to come. Transport will be provided to the Old Frascati Vineyard, a historic and renowned family-owned winery that has been producing wine in the region for seven generations.
Explore the grounds together, wander amongst hand-tended vines, then look inside the ‘secret’ underground laboratories used to hide persecuted families during world war 2 and used today to store wine. Follow with a guided tasting of each of the winery’s products, including Frascati Superiore DOCG white wine, Vagnolo IGP red wine, and Frascati DOC White Wine. Savor the family’s extra virgin olive oils paired with a selection of delicious bread. Bid farewell to the winery and swap vineyards for lunch in a hand-picked trattoria featuring the very best cured meats, cheeses, oils, breads, and pasta, and of course – more wine. Afterwards, say goodbye to your hosts and head back to Rome.
