Frascati Wine Tasting Tour from Rome

Sample fine wines from the Frascati region during your winetasting tour

Meet your guide and hop aboard your air-conditioned coach in Rome’s Piazza dei Re di Roma in the mid-afternoon, and head out of the city into the rolling hills of the Castelli Romani to begin your tour. Travel through ancient olive groves and past row upon row of centuries-old vineyards, and soak up spectacular views of the verdant Italian countryside. The fertile soils here have been used in wine production since the Roman Era and there are thousands of years of winemaking heritage to discover.

Head deep into the Frascati region — where the celebrated Pallavicini winemaking family has been working the land since the 17th century — and follow your guide on a tour of the Principe Pallavicini estate. Gain insight into the various stages of wine production and learn how their techniques have evolved from antiquity to the present day.

Step inside 3rd-century cellars where fine wines mature slowly in Acacia and French Oak barrels, and listen as your guide details the complex winemaking processes at play. The wines produced on this estate are regular winners of prestigious international awards such as the Decanter World Wine Award and the Vinitaly Cangrande Award, cementing their place among the region’s very finest.

Continue on to the estate’s beautiful 17th-century farmhouse and enjoy a tasting session led by the professional sommelier. Sample delicate fruit flavors in reds such as casa romana and soleggio and subtle sweetness in whites like poggio verde, before finishing with a taste of the delicious dessert wine, stillato.

When it’s time to depart from the estate, hop back aboard your coach for the journey back to Rome where your wine tasting tour will come to an end.

After a few days of being in the city, it was nice to take a trip in to the country side and see the lovely rolling hills filled with vineyards and olive groves. Rebecca, our tour guide, was knowledgeable about the area, the wine, and gave good tips on the city. The vineyard itself was lovely and even better, the wine was AMAZING! we learned a lot and even brought a few bottles home. highly recommended

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

This was an amazing experience right outside the center of Rome. Rebecca our tour guide was super nice and knowledgeable of the history of Rome, the winery, the wines, and Italian! I would certainly do this tour again and highly recommend going if you can. We bought some amazing wine too.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Trip was an hour out of Rome in a comfortable bus no rest room - go before you leave -- wine fermentation under a Roman Aqueduct was really neat. Explanations by guides was top notch and the wines were excellent 4 full glasses -- worth it only complaint is that Viator charged credit card twice for two people so watch for that -- worth it at twice the price but they are managed from afar and hard to get credit back

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

The tour guide was awesome! He had a great energy, good sense of humor, and was very kind and helpful. The tour was more than I expected, I highly recommend it and would even do it again in a future trip to Rome. The place is beautiful and the wines are AMAZING!

My wife a wine and olive oil snob thought this was about the most fun tour of our three-week Italian journey! Our guide, Rebecca, whilst an America, had an impeccable command of the Italian language, customs and culture. The sun was warm, the wine delightful, and the ambience perfect -- la dolce vita!
