Departure Time

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.  

The 1st white wine will be served with bruschetta and olive oil.

The 2nd white wine is served with panzanella (traditional dish with bread and tomatoes), followed by the 3rd white wine: served with pecorino cheese and salami. Biscuits are offered at the end.

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

Lovely time in Castelli Romani

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.

Great tour to a little vineyard. The bruschetta they served with the tasting was delicious. The stop in Frascatti was just enought time to take a short walk around this cute little village and grab some gelato.

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.

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 !!

This trip was amazing! We had a private van take us to the Vineyard which was such a nice surprise. The driver was so friendly and catered to our needs. He stopped so that we could take pictures of the mountainside. He took pictures of us. He then waited while we did the tour. The gentleman that gave us the tour of the vineyard was fantastic. We had a nice private tour followed by wine, cheese and meats that are paired with the wines. He explained to us the history of the vineyard and how wine is made. He also taught us how to taste and smell the wine. We then stopped off at a gelato shop on our way back.This was one of our favorite parts of the trip! All of the staff was so friendly :
