I have been on plenty of winetours all over the world and this has been one of my favourites to date! Our guide Paoula was so pleasant and informative. The views over the vineyards are stunning. The whole experience was so relaxed and we were not rushed after the wine tasting session. A great change from the hustle and bustle of Rome. Max our tour guide in Frascati town was a breath of fresh air... highly entertaining. I would highly recommend this wine tour.

Lovely time! To get to Frascati from Rome is easy (you will get a great guide how to take the train when booking) and the location of the vineyard is really pretty and the guides are fun and have so much good information. To make the most of Frascati, stay in the town after the wine tour to enjoy this quaint little town that really comes alive towards during sunset. Great daytrip from Rome and the wine was super tasty :)

The entire experience was outstanding! A beautiful vineyard, wine house and lunch in town, Paola and her family take great pride in their family business and is so knowledgeable. I highly recommend this tour for anyone. I loved it. I am having 2 cases shipped home!!
