Discover The Taste of Italy

A wine tasting tour that transports you from the Eternal City to a tranquil hillside Villa encircled by vineyards and olive groves in the Frascati countryside. Grasp Italy’s essence from the hilltops of the famed Castelli Romani, or 'Roman Castles', as you experience history and enjoy a tour of the senses.

The only wine tour of its kind in Rome – visit one of the oldest and most beautiful vineyards in the Frascati region. The 200 acres of grapevines surrounding a 17th century structure and 3rd century caverns lined with Acacia and French Oak barrels are treasures of one of Italy's oldest and most distinguished noble families, the Pallavicini.

And Uncover The History

Our expert, English-speaking guide illustrates the local wine-producing methods from antiquity to the modern day and reveals Imperial Rome as the cradle of wine culture, where wine went from a status symbol of the elite to a pleasure enjoyed by all. This enticing voyage of the senses concludes with a guided wine tasting of a special selection of Pallavicini’s featured white and red wines and fresh pressed olive oil, all paired with delicious italian food: local cheeses and cured meats, plus bruschetta and focaccia.
