SPEND A DAY IN WINE AND FOOD HAVEN, JUST 25 MINUTES OUTSIDE OF ROME!
Here’s your chance to enjoy the pristine natural areas around Rome … discover what REAL Italian wine is like … and relax into the picturesque wine country that’s been fueling Rome for centuries!
Frascati is just that… A small Roman Outlier with a big wine history. - In this beautiful small town, just outside the hustle and bustle of the Eternal City ... Artisans, winemakers, and sommeliers have been prying their trade since time immemorial.
This is your chance to “poke your head in the window” and see what that kind of life is like!
Lush with amazing street food, famous roasted Porchetta, and delectable olive oils… all of which you’ll get to savor - Frascati is a piece of old-world peace, right around the corner from Rome.
What do you think of when you hear “jug wine?” - Chances are not much. - maybe the bottom row of supermarket wine shelves, or maybe even a few terrible teenage memories…
But here… Frascati Jug Wine is treasured, and stored in an amazing underground cave system that you’ll get to explore. - And THIS jug wine is known far and wide as an economical, tasty, everyday drink. - Far different from what most of the world thinks.
You’ll learn all about it (with your taste buds), and enjoy plenty of time hanging out with the experts who’ve devoted their lives to this humble purpose. - Wine, oh wine!
Frascati is just a short (and super cheap 2.10 euro) train ride from Rome, and your guide will meet you right there at Frascati Station. - You could book a car to get you there too, if that’s your preference.
Once there, you can spend the day relaxing into Rome’s nearby pastoral bliss, and getting to the bottom of wine history, once and for all!
And to put a cherry on the day… you may even opt for a private chauffeured ride back that stops off in Nemi (another must-see Roman Outlier). - There, you can discover this jaw-droppingly beautiful mountainside town that’s famous for its fountains that gush with sparkling artesian water, and wild little strawberries that taste like fruit tarts. Worth it.
Book this one to get outside Rome for a minute, learn the subtleties of Roman wine, and have a little fun in a beautiful, thriving, ancient atmosphere!
