Description

Discover Frascati Minardi Winery, located at the gates of the Eternal City of Rome, on a patchwork of pristine Frascati DOCG wine terrain in the heart of the “Castelli Romani” area. Just a short train ride from Rome, the Castelli Romani is a group of hills that surround the Eternal City, each with a hilltop village and a countryside dotted with vineyards and olive groves.

The Minardi family began making wine at the Minardi Winery in the 19th century and continued until 2010 when they started bottling their own wine for the first time. Before that, their wine was like all traditional Frascati wine; filled in different flasks and barrels, bought on location in Frascati’s traditional taverns, called ‘Fraschette’, where people brought their own food and were served the house wine. The Minardis once owned a Fraschetta in the old town of Frascati but they mainly sold their wine from their own cellar.
 
Enjoy the views on our beautiful panoramic deck overlooking the whole city of Rome and the mountains above the ancient city of Tivoli. The Minardi Historic Winery is now a “Wine Museum” surrounded by ancient vineyards and olive groves as currently the winemaking process takes place in the modern winemaking premises in Frascati’s area. 
 
The last generation of owners of the Minardi Winery is made up by the sisters Nadia and Anna Minardi and their families. Anna lives in New York City. Her family runs an Italian Restaurant in Manhattan, “Sandro’s”, chaired by Anna’s husband, the well known Chef Sandro Fioriti, which is now supported by their son Sandro Jr. Nadia lives in the Minardi Winery with her family. Her husband Umberto is the current winemaker of the vineyard and is passionate about the traditions of his land.
 
Umberto and the Minardi family will guide you into an authentic wine experience in the land of the “Golden Wine” of Rome. Take your chance to experience one of a kind guided wine tours of one of the famous Frascati Wine vineyards! You will also have the chance to taste some genuine wines and olive oils as well as delicious Italian food and even participate in pasta or pizza cooking classes.
