What You Can Expect
Head on to the hamlet of Monte Porzio Catone, and visit Santa Benedetta – the oldest winery in Castelli Romani. On a tour of the rustic estate, hear how it was once a convent, and learn about the winemaking traditions that have been passed down by generations of the Benedetti family.
At this secluded little spot, sit down for your wine-tasting session, sampling three important Santa Benedetta wines – complexus, gigi and tre vecchie. Soak up the wine with a plate of local delicacies, including the winery’s extra virgin olive oil, bruschetta (pane di Lariano, an aromatic, crusty white bread), cheeses and cured meats.
After relaxing at the estate, enjoying the fine wine, food and great company, your guide will drive you back to your Rome hotel.
Couldn't believe the hospitality at Santa Benedetta winery. They made us feel very welcome, like part of the family. Our driver was also excellent. A tour that you should not miss.
Very good trip
This tour was wonderful. Our driver was very nice, arrived completely on time and drive was relaxing.
The winery was very nice, the wine delicious and the bruschetta and the chesse tasting was amazing!!
Definitely recommend doing this tour!!!
This was THE place to go for the taste of wonderful wine locally produced. So much fun and what beautiful views. The 45 min. drive took us to the hills overlooking breathtaking Roma. The tour included visiting the fields where the grapes and olives are grown. Inside we tasted several whites/reds.A+
The wine and winery were excellent as was the view. Great driver and winery host. A super day.
Excellent tour. We were the only ones on tour. Good driver, very knowledgeable guide at the winery. We learned a lot about the wine of the area. The tasting and nibbles were very nice. We bought a bottle to have with our evening meal. Nice walk about the little town. Lovely tour, would recommend.
This amazing trip started out by our tour guide picking us up from the hotel. Bruno was extremely friendly and sociable when driving us around Rome to get to the vineyard. He even went out of his way to show us some points of interest that he felt we needed to see (Basilicas, architecture). We were greeted as soon as we got to the vineyard and instantly felt right at home. We were explained how the wine and oil are produced from when the grapes/olives are planted to when they are processed and fermented. I was not expecting the group to sample 3 different bottles of wine and treated to a homemade Italian lunch. I knew it was a tasting of wine/olive oil/meats/cheeses. I was shocked to find mini pizzas, bruschetta, local meats/cheeses, strawberry's, and desserts. Everything was homemade and strictly delicious. I don't think you can go to Italy and not do something like this. This made my trip and was my favorite thing to do there!
Great tour, end up being private for us. The wine was great. They took the time to explain everything. Nice and clean van picked us up. Only 40 min drive with great views and a quick tour of the town.
Small group, small but very old winery. Wine maker tasted along with us. Accompanying food was great. View was spectacular. Wine was good but nothing to get very excited over. Interestingly one of the locals came while we were there with a empty plastic milk jug and paid to have the jug filled right out of the cask.
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour - our tour guide (Bruno) was oustanding (very informative, considerate and enjoyable) and he really made our experience special. We were treated like royalty at the winery and are very glad we included this tour in our vacation!
