Full description
You will meet your group and be introduced to your guides at the Frascati Railway Station. From there your guide will lead the way on a short walk through historic Frascati, the very heart of the Roman countryside. You'll get a glimpse of this characteristic town and it's rich history which dates back to Roman times. After a short walk, you will arrive at a beautiful wine cellar, where your hosts will open the wines produced at the family vineyard: Frascati Superiore D.O.C.G., and Vagnolo. After tasting the wine with some traditional appetizers, your pasta making begins. Your chef will teach you how to make authentic homemade pasta, so be ready to get your hands dirty. Once you have mixed and rolled out your pasta you will be faced with a difficult choice: which of the Roman-style dishes would you like to create? You can choose from 3 typical recipes: Carbonara, Amatriciana, or Cacio e Pepe, before allowing your chef to guide you through the preparation. Your tour's grand finale will be as you sit down to enjoy your pasta while conversing with the other guests for as long as you like. Following dinner, you'll have a chance to view the "caves" below the wine cellar, before your tour concludes.

It was used by three families from Japan. I and my daughter, who do not understand English, enjoyed themselves. I arrived earlier than time, so I had to wait at the station in the middle of the cold, so I chose 4 stars.
