The tour, priced for a group of up to 4 people, stops at Antico Casale, where you’ll meet the winemaker and then tour the vineyard and cellars. Learn how the wine is produced and maybe even sample a grape fresh off of the vine. After the winery tour, you’ll sit down for a tasting session and sample 3 varieties of wine that are produced here. The first wine you’ll taste is a white Frascati DOCG, which means the wine has its designation of origin guaranteed. The second is a red wine IGP, which has a protected geographical indication.

The words FABULOUS & FANTASTIC are not even close to how myself & my friends can describe our experience at the St. Benedetta Vineyard.... The whole day was an amazing experience from the collection at our hotel by our fabulous driver Vladimir all the way through our tour of this beautiful & breath taking vineyard hosted by it's proud owners Alberto & his son Antonio.... Afterwards we sat in their beautiful gardens surrounded by the wonderful colours & scents from the flowers & herbs everywhere & sampled 4 absolutely DELICIOUS wines accompanied by some extremely tasty local foods. We cannot thank Antonio & Alberto enough for this wonderful experience & can assure them that we will certainly be back..... we would recommend this to anyone considering a visit to Rome. You do not have to be a Wine Drinker to enjoy this Day. A special thanks also to Vladimir who was a great guide & brought us into Frescati where we all enjoyed a truly delicious Italian Gelato!

Punctual pickup and very pleasant drive to the winery in a spacious car. The son of the house first showed the vineyards and gave explanations. Very interesting. Then we went to the wine tasting in a great, stylish old ambience. Three excellent wines with exquisite small snacks. It was worth it! We only found three wines a little bit less for a wine tasting with the price, but they were probably the best. Unfortunately, the time was then a bit short because the driver was pushing back to Rome.

Personalized and simple

Patrick our driver was prompt to pick us up and very courteous. I love that the winery was not busy which allowed plenty of time to talk with the vintner and winery owner. The food pairings with the wines were stupendous. Yes I loved dipping the homemade cookies in the sweet wine! The ride home was of a different path because Patrick have us a scenic route with recommendations of sights to see.

Antonio the guide, was excellent. He took time to not only show us the property, but give us lessons on how to grade the wine and enjoy it. The food was excellent, wine was great, left with 12 bottles. Highly recommend!

It was a really nice experience, the staff at the wine farm are nice and explain a lot about the wine and the farm,
