As soon as you arrive at the farmhouse, we will take you on a tour across the old vineyards, which we still take care of with the same old farming techniques the family has been adopting for centuries. Travel into the past of the wine-making, listening to the stories and experiences of a passionate family of this historic land.
We will then lead you to visit the old wine cellar of the historic winery, where we will introduce you to the secrets and the historic wine-making processes of the famous Frascati wine. The Minardi Historic Farmhouse is now a sort of “Frascati Wine Museum” surrounded by ancient vineyards and olive groves.
Time to taste the famous Frascati Wine! Alfredo, a certified wine taster of the family, will guide you through a generous tasting of the three wines of the family production, the famous Frascati Superiore DOCG white wine, the Vagnolo IGT red wine, as well as the Frascati DOC White Wine. All of the wines will be paired with typical breads and pizzas, “Porchetta”, aged cheese with our Wine Jelly, and traditional wine cookies. You will also have an Oil tasting of the Minardi Family’s own Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
At the end of the wine and olive oil tasting you will meet our good Pizza Master, and you will enjoy a fun pizza making class in a special place, directly at the farmhouse!
Our local Pizza Master will teach you how to prepare the traditional Roman pizza, including “Margherita” and “Capricciosa“ varieties, as well as some of the secrets to prepare the perfect dough! You will finally enjoy the lunch consisting of several tasty appetizers and the Pizzas that you prepared during the Class, Frascati Wine, water, espresso coffee..and Frascati Wine Cookies!
At the end of the lunch we will accompany you in Frascati, where you will be able to take the train back to Rome (there is one train every hour until 22:36, except on the weekends where the last train is one hour earlier).
