Last Friday, Ettore and I accompanied a group of 16 wine students to a winery in Frascati. Visiting wineries is essential for gaining a real understanding of winemaking in general. We learned about winemaking from the vineyard to the bottling and everything in between. Wine is a delicate relationship between man and nature and wine is a product of that relationship. At the winery we get to meet the winemakers, understand better what terroir really means. The best part is that wineries are usually in beautiful locations and always a nice excursion from Rome. Of course at the end of every winery tour there is a wine tasting.
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.
Though it is winter, on sunny days a walk through the vineyards is a lovely experience. The Castelli Romani is full of vineyards and olive groves that have fed and “watered” Rome for centuries. The Castelli Romani is a group of hilltop villages near surrounded by vineyards, olive groves, and fields with sheep and are a perfect wine tasting and cultural excursion from Rome.
