Traditional Frascati Wine Tour
Enjoy an original day trip from Rome to discover the City of Wine!
You will catch the train in Rome Termini Station at 9:49 a.m. (or at 08:54 a.m. on Saturdays!) towards Frascati (this is a 20 minutes comfortable train ride only!)
Once arrived at Frascati railway station at 10:20 a.m. (or at 9:25 a.m. on Saturdays), a member of our family will make you visit the old town of Frascati to discover the places and stories of the wine & food tradition, meet local artisans and taste artisanal wine!
We will then transfer you at our Wine Farmhouse with a 5 minutes drive! As soon as you arrive there, we will take you on a tour across the old vineyards, to show you the same old farming techniques that our family has been adopting for centuries. Travel into the past of the winemaking, listening to the stories and experiences of this historic land.
You will visit the old wine cellar of the wine farmhouse, where you will be introduced 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! We will guide you through a wine tasting of the three wines of the family production: the famous Frascati Superiore DOCG white wine, the Vagnolo IGP red wine, as well as the Frascati DOC White Wine. You will also have an Oil tasting of the family’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
All of the wines will be paired with a Gourmet Lunch prepared by our Chef and served directly at the farmhouse!
The lunch will consist in several tasty appetizers followed by a first course made of Frascati and Roman Pasta, wine cookies and espresso coffee.
At the end of the lunch you will be driven back to Frascati center, where you will be free to take the train back to Rome (there is one train every hour until the evening).
We promise you that this will be a one-of-a-kind experience on the charming hills surrounding the Eternal City!
