TAKE A BREAK FROM ROME
Half-Day Food & Frascati Wine experiences in Roman Wine Country. Cooking Classes in the Frascati Historic Center.
AN ANCIENT TRADITION
Old Frascati Food & Wine brings you authentic Frascati culinary traditions and the wines of a small family-run winery in the heart of Frascati DOCG country. This winery’s mission is to elevate Frascati Superiore DOCG for the modern pallet while remembering the wine’s ancient origins. Frascati wine was the wine of the Ancient Romans. The vineyard is located in a gorgeous valley where winemaking artefacts dating back to 1000 B.C. have been discovered, all with spectacular views of Rome in the distance. The winery is run by the 6th and 7th generation of winemakers who can’t wait to share their winemaking tradition with you!
FARM TO TABLE
Things move at a slower pace in Frascati. Nowhere is this fact better represented than in the the way food is produced and prepared. Porchetta is cooked in a wood burning oven for over 8 hours. The olive oil is extra virgin and cold pressed. The pasta is all hand-made. Our wine is still made with ancient techniques first used by the Romans. Here, the local baker, winemaker, tavern owner, and restaurant owner all value organic and locally sourced products. Not because its trendy, but because it’s tradition!
OLD WORLD CHARM
The Ancient Town of Frascati sits on the rim of a dormant volcano. Its rich volcanic soil was much sought after by the Etruscans, Ancient Romans, the Vatican State and most recently by Romans on weekend get-aways. Wine has been produced in Frascati for thousands of years. Frascati wine is known as the ‘Golden Wine of the Romans’, the ‘Pope’s Wine’ and the white wine of Rome. Each stone building, cobblestone street, and ancient church tells the story of the centuries of people who have called Frascati home.
Old Frascati Food & Wine is a cultural association based in Frascati, we work with local vintners, artisans, chefs, historians and sommeliers to show you the best that Frascati has to offer! We have several food and wine tours that we have created with our collaborators to give the perfect experience for visitors. We are all very passionate about our town’s heritage and love to share it with the world! Frascati is a unique town that has a rich tradition of farm to table cooking and winemaking. We bring you to the oldest family-run wineries in the region, a generations old family operated bakery, wonderful local restaurants, and a charming historic town in the Roman Countryside.
This tour is about as good as it gets! A personal, not overly commercial and special tour. A perfect 25 minute train excursion to Frascati out of busy Rome. Lovely spending my day with the charming locals. The highlight of my latest Rome trip!
I can’t recommend this tour enough! It’s a very enjoyable getaway from the hustle and bustle of Rome. Just a short train ride away but worlds away from the hectic city. I discovered amazing wines and amazing people in Frascati!
St. Petersburg, Florida
I’ve been to Rome a couple times and this stands out as one of the most authentic (and favorite) experiences so far. It’s very refreshing to get out of the city and into the countryside to experience a more laid back tour. Frascati is near Rome and has beautiful views and vineyards.

I loved this tour!! Would really recommend, only a half hour “train ride from Rome it is easy to book and a great day trip from Rome. Dominique met the group at the train station so no worries about getting lost and you get an interesting tour around the town and plenty of great food and wine. What’s not to love!”
Our tour was fantastic and well organized from start to finish! We enjoyed learning about the history of the vineyard and tasting the beautiful wines. We also loved the experience of learning about Frascati and the culture within the town. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.
Was a great experience of the beautiful small town of Fascati and the amazing Red, White & Dessert wine. Daniella was our tour leader & she was great. If traveling from Rome, take the public train it’s comfortable & clean! You can purchase the wine produced from this vineyard at the end of the tour, so take some extra cash because you will buy a bottle or two to take back for sure 🙂
