We think any excursion to the Castelli Romani must include the gorgeous town and lake of Nemi. It is a very magical mysterious place!!


It is also famous for strawberries

Tasting Marco Carpineti wines with Paolo Carpineti


Their passito wine, Ludum, made from 100% Arciprete grapes


Nero Buono

During our wine and cultural excursion from Rome to Sermoneta and Cori, we visit the Marco Carpineti winery in Cori to taste their wines and have a homemade lunch.  We will first tour the cantina and vineyards where we will learn about the hard work that goes into producing wine.  This winery is special not only because they maintain an organic vineyard, but also because they are making an effort to use only native grapes. These are grapes that are local to the region such as Nero Buono and Bellone.  Thousands of people make an effort to make day trips to Tuscany from Rome, but we suggest trying something new and unique that is a shorter distance from Rome, which you give you time to visit more places and really enjoy your wine and food tasting experience.
