Upon arrival in Frascati, you will be greeted by the beautiful 16th century Villa Aldobrandini! This villa once hosted the Pope for his summer holiday and when you see the spectacular view of Rome in the distance you will understand why!The Old Frascati Wine Tour’s ‘Classic Half-Day Wine Tour’ begins with a walk around town where you will see amazing buildings like our ‘St. Peter’s Cathedral’ which was built between 1600 and 1700 and was tragically bombed in WW2… Only the facade withstood the bombings.
A little tongue and cheek humor from the people of Frascati! Our mascot is ‘Miss Frascati’ a cookie with three breasts! Two for milk and one for wine!During the tour you will also get to try jug wine from the oldest wine tavern (Fraschetta) in town! Jug wine is served straight from the stainless steal tank and costs just 2.50 euro a liter and is delicious with roasted Frascati pork (porchetta).After visiting the city center you will be driven to our vineyard and winery which makes Frascati Superiore DOCG. You will visit the grounds with the 7th generation winemaker who will tell you about the history of the family winery and the techniques used for making our award winning wines!

All wines are paired with snacks picked up on the tour around town and the family’s our olive oil.
