Highlights
    What to Expect
    After hopping aboard your coach in Rome, head out of the city with your guide and admire the scenery as it changes from urban to rural. Travel through the hilly region of Castelli Romani, passing by olive groves and centuries-old vineyards where wine has been made since the days of ancient Rome.

    Reaching the Frascati region, arrive at the Principe Pallavicini estate, where the Pallavicini family has been making wine since the 17th century. Tour the property to learn about the different stages of wine production, from grape to bottle, and hear about the evolution of winemaking techniques through the years.

    Visit the wine cellars, which date back to the 3rd century, and learn about the acacia and French oak barrels that age the fine wines produced here, many of which have won awards such as the Decanter World Wine Award and Vinitaly Cangrande Award. Then head to the 17th-century farmhouse for your tasting session with a sommelier, who helps you to notice different fruit flavors of the wines. Sample one of the estate's red wines, such as Casa Romana or Soleggio, a white wine, such as Poggio Verde, and a dessert wine, Stillato.

    At the end of your winery experience, your tour ends with the drive back to Rome.

    We loved our tour guide, Sylvia. She had so much energy and was so fun to do the tour with. The wine was absolutely delicious - the best I've ever had. Definitely worth the money.

    This tour can easily accommodate a group of 10. The tour bus is larger than that. Our group was also larger.
