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.
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!
