Exciting News! Now shipping “Best of Frascati” Packages

This is certainly a very different 2020 than we all anticipated.  I know many of you have had to cancel your trips to Italy and your visits to Frascati.  Many of you have reached out in the last few months to check in on all of us, and we appreciate all of the wonderful emails and well-wishes that we have received from you over the last couple of months!  Everyone in Frascati has been staying strong through this global pandemic and as the lockdown restrictions in Italy begin to lift we are looking to the future.

We know some of you have asked how you can help out in this difficult time, many of the wineries in Frascati have come to count on the tourists and are looking for new ways to get through the next few months.  We’ve come up with a solution that will help many of the Frascati family owned wineries.  We will be offering some special “Best of Frascati” mixed packages of wine, olive oil, and Nonna Rosanna’s wine cookies.  We will be taking orders now until the end of July.

We miss welcoming all of you to Frascati in person, and we hope that you all return when times are better.  Until then, let us bring a little bit of Frascati to you.

Fontana Laura: Olive Oil

Cold pressed from exclusively Castelli Romani olives: rosciola, carboncella and leccin, they give a medium fruity oil, green color and golden yellow reflections.  Delicate notes both bitter and spicy, and sweet. To obtain the highest possible quality, the olives – all very healthy – are harvested during the morning and sent to the mill where they are processed during the afternoon: only in this way can you produce an oil with very low acidity.
