The tour will take you through the Roman countryside and the Lazio region in particular, where you will get a brief understanding of the history of vineyards in this area. For instance, back in the 1970s, the Lazio region had up to 75,000 hectares of vineyards, surpassing even the vineyards in Piedmont and Tuscany today. Your tour will take you through the city center, which was historically an area with several vineyards, as well as Castelli Romani, which is a few kilometres from the city and still has a sizeable number of vineyards. You will then head to a traditional enotica (which literally translates to wine repository), where you will learn about the Roman countryside’s viticulture heritage, through the ages. You will also be served three different types of wine - two white wines and one red wine - that will allude to the stories being related to you. Your wine tasting will be accompanied by servings of cold cuts and cheeses to give you an understanding of the basis for food and wine pairings. This tour will leave you with a wholesome understanding of the differences in wine flavors and colors and you will head back as an Italian wine connoisseur!
