You will learn the original pasta recipe of our land, including many secret and tips that our Chef learnt from his Grandma!
Wine Tour in the Vineyard…
After the class, and after a nice wine toast with the Extra Virgin Olive Oil produced by the family, 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 for Lunch… and for Wine Tasting!
We will enjoy a nice lunch prepared by our Chef, including a rich appetizer with several varieties of seasonal food including the special cheeses with our Wine Jelly, and of course the three Pastas that you have prepared during the class!
