"Highlight of our Rome Vacation!"
review for Roman Countryside Winery Tour and Pasta Making Class

5

The Minardi winery tour and pasta class was a highlight of our Rome vacation! The pasta class was very enjoyable, with both learning and fun. Connections to Frascati were exactly as described on the web, in a comfortable quick train from Termini station. We were met by Jo, who is an excellent local guide as well as instructor. Jo shared local history of this lovely hill town as our group of six walked to the restaurant. Jo’s co-teacher was a pasta pro, an Italian grandma who is hands on yet encouraging. After the fettuccine preparation was completed we had a short walk about Frascati, then driven five minutes to the Minardi winery. The family has made wines here for nine generations. We were shown the vineyard by the family patriarch and his son, the current vintner. After an overview of the growing techniques, they shared their home’s sweeping views then the homes’ old cellars and historic equipment before tasting the current vintages with antipasti. A very beautiful and educational day ending back at the restaurant to enjoy the pasta we made for lunch! A short walk back to the train for the return ride to Rome. A great day of Italian culture we’d never have experienced otherwise!
