En smak av Castelli Romani: Dagstur fra Roma til Santa Benedetta-vinprodusenten
Dra videre til landsbyen Monte Porzio Catone, der du besøker Santa Benedetta – den eldste av vinprodusentene i Castelli Romani. Under rundturen på den rustikke herregården får du høre at den en gang i tiden var kloster, og om vintradisjonene som har gått i arv i generasjoner innen Benedetti-familien.
På dette lille, bortgjemte stedet setter du deg ned for en vinsmaking, der du får smake tre av de viktigste Santa Benedetta-vinene – Complexus, Gigi og Tre Vecchie. Til vinen nyter du en tallerken med lokale delikatesser, inkludert vinprodusentens egen extra virgin-olivenolje, bruschetta (pane di Lariano, et aromatisk og sprøtt hvitt brød), oster og spekemat.
Etter at du har ha slappet av på herregården og kost deg med vin, mat og godt selskap, kjører guiden deg tilbake til hotellet i Roma.

The vineyard was located in an idyllic setting near Frascati. We enjoyed the tour of the vineyards and the discussion about the grapes and harvesting. The wines were quite nice and the olive oil was superb, I thought. I ordered a case of the white wine to be sent back to U.S. The owners were very knowledgeable and gracious; I appreciated that they brought us into a part of their home and told us about their family and their long legacy of wine making on that very estate.
Really enjoyed this experience very much. The driver that picked us up was right on time, and the drive was a good way to see the outside part of Rome. The only negative I would note, is that our guide, who was absolutely wonderful and very informative, he still had to take care of customers and even a couple who came for a small tour. We very much enjoyed the food paring and the wine was very good, but we were left alone more than we should have been. We ended up drinking more wine, but really wish we could have had a bit more attention.
Good tour, nice walk through the vineyard and hearing the story of how it's been in the same family for years. Loved the tasting room...lots of pictures of historical value of the area. The only disappointment was that if you weren't buying wine/olive oil, the owner was kind of dismissive. Overall, nice stop.
Our driver was polite and professional and the guide at the vineyard was pleasant, however we were disappointed overall with this tour. We were driven along the highway and did not see any quaint Italian villages as expected. The wine tasting was interesting but the tour was not worth the expense.
Car service was prompt and comfortable. Winery was beautiful and peaceful. Wine was fantasic and the tour guide was fun and informative. Drive seemed brief and it was nice to chat with the other couple. Walked away happy and jealous I don't live there.
My wife and I had a wonderful visit to the winery !! We were looking for a short trip on our last day in Rome to fill out our schedule and allow us to rest a bit after a full week of walking among ancient ruins and museums and this visit was just what we needed!! Our driver- Virginio- went out of his way to help us address some monetary exchange issues that required us to go into the city and he pointed out and explained several sites enroute that we had not seen . Then the folks at the winery!! All were first class- gave us the history on the location, filled us with knowledge of growing grapes and olives and producing wines and the wine sampling was fantastic and relaxing!! They even helped us prepare the things we bought to pack in our suitcases and you can be certain that when we get home to Texas that we will sample them with our neighbors and place an Email order for some more and maybe even get the recipe for the wonderful pastry they served . Great experience and recommend it to anyone !!
