What You Can Expect

Taste of Castelli Romani: Day Trip Including Santa Benedetta Winery from Rome

Santa Benedetta Vineyard food tasting

Leave your Rome hotel and head to the hills of Castelli Romani, the Lazio region’s easy-on-the-eye winemaking area. While its name hints at an abundance of Roman castles, Castelli Romani is actually a collection of 13 extremely scenic villages in the Alban Hills, punctuated by volcanic lakes and secluded valleys.

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.

Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2013

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.
