Humongous traditional perfect wine pairing lunch

The new Roman villa, with great wines, built on the ancient Roman villa.
A peaceful “Buen Retiro” at the gates of Rome.

The story of Tenuta di Pietra Porzia, agriturismo (guesthouse farm) near Rome, is closely linked firstly to the events that characterized the ancient Roman Empire, then to the Vatican State and its immense properties in the Agro Romano (the rural area that surrounds Rome).

According to a plaque found in Frascati, in 200 BC the estate was owned by the gens Porcia, a large family of the Roman senate to which Marco Porzio Catone belonged. Later, he became a famous and important Roman agriculture historian.

Pietra Porzia is today The new Roman villa, with great wines, built on the ancient Roman villa. a stone’s throw from the chaotic center of Rome.

Here you will stroll in silent tree-lined avenues, taste wines that recall the ancient ones and appreciate the perfect lunch with wine pairing.

LAZIO

LOCATION:
PIETRA PORZIA winery, Via di Pietra Porzia, 60 – Frascati (Roma)
Castelli Romani area, just 30 minutes drive from Rome city center

STYLE OF EXPERIENCE:
RARE WINES: Frascati

DURATION:
Duration on-site (hours. ±1): 5

After meeting with your exclusive Ambassador you will enjoy the charm of the walk along the avenues immersed in the vineyards and in the landscape overlooking Rome.

We will tell you the story of the company, the family and the wines up to the arrival of the ancient spring: a unique and mysterious place that sums up the volcanic origin of these territories.

Here we will taste the first of the wines for tasting, accompanied by our extra virgin olive oil.

We will return, always on a walk, to the wine making, bottling and storage rooms and during the walk you will be told about the entire production and wine making process.

The visit then ends with a tour of the old cellar where you can admire the company’s ancient caves.

The subsequent tasting in the cellar includes the tasting of the following types of wine: Frascati DOC, Frascati Superiore DOCG Gold Label, DOC Roma Rosso Gold Label. The tasting will be accompanied by our EVO Oil and cheeses.

Your lunch of perfect pairing with wines will then be served at the farmhouse, followed by a moment of “digestive” relaxation with massages or meditation.

Our vineyards unravel on a plot of land of volcanic origins, once part of the lake Regillo bottom: it means extremely fertile soils and a unique microclimate.

Frascati Doc and Docg Regillo come from vineyards owned by the company, planted with the ancient local native vines (Malvasia puntinata del Lazio, Greco, Bombino, etc.).

This allows us to obtain the real, ancient Frascati wine, with its great structure and strong fruity aromas, intensified by the steel vinification at a controlled temperature, by low sulfites quantity (less than half of what is permitted by law, hence less than organic wines), and by the special ecological cultivation.

The Regillo Docg Cannellino comes from a late harvest of Malvasia del Lazio Puntinata vine.

The Castelli Romani Rosso is obtained with Montepulciano, Cabernet, and Merlot.

The Lecino Doc Rome is absolutely unique for the presence of Lecinaro, an ancient vine recently rediscovered that has an intense aroma of cocoa and cherries in alcohol.

The “Triumph of tradition” menu (example, it will change according to seasons…). A true farm-to-table, organic cuisine
