Rome Wine Tours: this lovely Rome wine tour includes the Appian Way, ancient Roman acqueducts, and Castelli Romani vineyards. You will taste wine with the wine makers themselves and lunch at a local winery and agriturismo. Wine is not just a hobby for Italians, for many it is a way of life and you’re invited!
No need to drive all the way to Tuscany to experience this phenomenon first hand, our day trip to the Castelli Romani is sure to please your palate while you take a break from the hustle and bustle of touring Rome! Departing from the ancient city at approximately 11:30 AM, our Mercedes sedan or Viano van and driver will accompany you on a private tour south of Rome to the Castelli Romani wine region. We travel down the Appian Way, the historic pass where, according to history and legend, St. Peter had a vision of Jesus who convinced him to return to Rome to seek martyrdom.
Once outside Rome we arrive in the historic wine making town of Frascati, for a visit to a family run vineyard and agriturismo which produces Frascati Doc Superiore, red wine, olive oil, and other local specialities. You will be afforded a visit to the wine cellars, production area, and grounds.
After wine tasting, take your seat in the dining area or terrace for lunch.
Thereafter you will have the opportunity to further explore the grounds, have a swim in the pool during summer, and purchase any wines you might wish to take home with you. From here, the half day tour concludes and you will make the journey back to your hotel. If you wish, this tour can be extended in order to explore the center of Frascati, Lake Albano, Castelgandolfo, or include an additional winery visit.
