Pasta Masterclass & Wine Tour in the Vineyard
Enjoy the secrets of Pasta Making along with boutique Wines and Conviviality!
How to reach the Minardi Winery in Frascati:
We suggest you to catch the train in Rome Termini Station at 9:49 a.m. towards Frascati (this is a short 20 minutes comfortable train ride!) or if you prefer to come with your own car or taxi/uber, you will let us know upon booking and we will provide you with meeting point time and address!
Once arrived in Frascati, a member of our family will welcome you!
We will transfer you to our Minardi family Wine Farmhouse with a 5 minutes drive from the Frascati station, to enjoy a fun and informative pasta making class with our Chef!
The Pasta Masterclass!
Once you wear your apron, our Chef will teach you how to prepare from scratch nr. 3 of the traditional local pasta varieties, including “Ravioli” stuffed with the local ingredients, “Fettuccine” and “Maltagliati“, as well as some of the secrets of the local pasta making tradition!
You will learn the original pasta recipe of our land, including many secret and tips that our Chef learnt from his Grandma!
Wine Tasting and Farmhouse tour…
After the class, you will enjoy a guided wine tasting of the boutique wines of the family production: the Frascati Superiore DOCG white wine varieties, and the Vagnolo IGP red wine 100% Cesanese grapes.
The wines will be matched with the Extra Virgin Olive Oil produced by the family and with cheese and Wine Jam.
After the tastings, we will take you on a tour across the old vineyards to travel into the past of the winemaking and to show you the same old farming techniques that our family has been adopting for centuries. The Minardi Wine Farmhouse is now a sort of “Frascati Wine Museum” surrounded by ancient vineyards and olive groves.
Time for Lunch… and more Wine!
We will enjoy a nice lunch prepared by our Chef, including a rich appetizer with several varieties of local seasonal food, and of course the three Pastas that you have prepared during the class!
Artisanal Frascati sweet, White Wine and water are also included in the lunch!
The Chef lunch can also be Vegetarian/Vegan/Gluten free friendly, you will just let us know when you book the experience!
At the end of the experience we will drive you back in Frascati center, where you will be able to take the train back to Rome (there is one train every hour ).
