Full description
Castelli Romani, or Roman Castles, is an idyllic winemaking area just outside of Rome. While it's name hints at an abundance of medieval fortifications, what you will find is actually a collection of 13 picturesque towns in the Alban Hills, punctuated by volcanic lakes and secluded valleys. After pickup in a limousine from your hotel in Rome, head to the villages of Frascati and Grottaferrata. Wander the cobblestone streets, replete with all the trappings of stunningly-preserved medieval towns for a perfect start to your day trip. Afterwards, continue on to the Santa Benedetta winery for a tour and wine tasting session. Learn about the estate’s history as a former convent, and learn about the winemaking traditions that have been passed down by generations of the Benedetti family. Spend your afternoon enjoying three of the estate's finest wines alongside a selection of regional delicacies, namely extra virgin olive oil from the winery, bruschetta, pane de Lariano, cheeses, and cured meats. After relaxing at the estate, enjoying the wine, food, and great company, your guide will drive you back to your accommodation in Rome.

An unexpected gem! We were picked up in a private Mercedes and taken to the winery owned by 13th generation winemakers. The son and father welcomed us like family. The wine was outstanding as were the views and conversations. We were the only ones there at the time. Our driver also took us around Frascati to show us some local history.
