Castelli Romani is Rome's easy-on-the-eye winemaking area. While its name hints at an abundance of Roman castles, what you will find is actually a collection of 13 picturesque towns in the Alban Hills, punctuated by volcanic lakes and secluded valleys.
After exploring the villages of Frascati and Grottaferrata, head to Santa Benedetta for a tour and wine tasting session. Learn how the estate was once a convent and about the winemaking traditions that have been passed down by generations of the Benedetti family. Spend your afternoon enjoying three of the estate's finest wines alongside a selection of regional delicacies, namely extra virgin olive oil from the winery, bruschetta, pane de Lariano, cheeses and cured meats.
