What a perfect evening - Alfredo showed us around his home town of frascati and had so much knowledge of all the history. Very informative and such a beautiful place! The vineyard and winery were wonderful, interesting Minardi family history of generations of winemakers and delicious wine! The pizza class was a great experience with an amazing outcome and many helpful tips on how to make the perfect pizza at home. Grazie mille!!!
Can't speak more highly of this tour, and have recommended it to all our friends and family! Our guides Alfredo and Max were amazing and fun. They took us on a very cool little tour of Frascati where we learned and saw lots, and had some wine! Afterwards we headed to a pizzeria where the chef taught us how to make pizza, very fun!! We were the only people on the tour so it was very personal. Next we headed to a BEAUTIFUL vineyard that has been in the family for 7 generations where we learned about how their wine is made, and the history of how the process has changed over the years. We had generous amounts of wine paired with yummy breads, cheeses, wine cookies and wine jelly.
Every part of this tour was just awesome. Private guide touring around historical Friscati sampling local wine & LOTS of food. Beautiful vineyard and property and the most lovely hosts. Highly recommend!
