What You Can Expect

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

Santa Benedetta Vineyard food tasting

Your winery tour from Rome starts with hotel pickup for the drive out of the city and into Castelli Romani, a Lazio wine region home to several villages in the scenic Alban Hills, where green valleys and volcanic lakes offer a lovely respite from the bustling Eternal City.

Pass by villages like Frascati and Grottaferrata on your way to Monte Porzio Catone, where you’ll arrive at Santa Benedetta, one of the region’s oldest wineries. Take a tour of the rustic estate, learning about its history, including its former days as a convent. Hear about the winemaking traditions of the Beneditti family, and then enjoy a wine tasting that includes three Santa Benedetta wines: tre vecchie, gigi and complexus. Along with the wine, you can snack on a plate of regional specialties—extra virgin olive oil from the winery, cheese, cured meats and pane di Lariano, a crusty bread.  

After your relaxing time at the winery, your tour ends with the return drive to Rome for hotel drop-off.

It wasn't quite what we expected we ended up at a different winery due to availability. But it was worth it! We ended up being provided an extravagant lunch in their kitchen. The winery was tiny they had found WWII and ancient artifacts in the vinyards. We bought wine and olive oil to bring back.

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+

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!
