Tours of Wine Country in Italy
Wine Tours in Italy are a special experience. Your English speaking driver-guide will meet you at your hotel and take you on a private tour south of Rome to the “Castelli Romani” wine region. You will drive along the Appian Way, the historic street 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 you will arrive in the famous wine making town of Frascati stopping at a family run vineyard and “agriturismo” where they produce “Frascati doc superiore”, red wine, olive oil, and other local specialties and you will visit the wine cellars, production area and grounds. Then is time for your wine tasting experience followed by a typical lunch in the dining area or terrace where you will taste all the local produce (not included in the price of the tour).
Thereafter you will have a chance to further explore the grounds and purchase any wines you might wish to take home with you. Hence the tour concludes and you will begin the ride back to your hotel in Rome. If you wish, time can be added on to explore the center of Frascati, the Lake Albano and the town of Castel Gandolfo, where the Pope has his summer residence.
