November 19, 2009

So we slept late, which was great! On tap for today was our wine tasting tour, so we took a short bus ride half an hour outside the city to the Frascati region and the Pallavicini Estate. The scenery was just amazing.

We of course toured the wine cellar, and got to see the giant barrels, and learned all about wine making (add that to my knoweldge from Napa....)

Finally we tasted 3 types of wine: Frascati, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvigon, along with olive oil that is made at the estate.

Yeah for Italian wine! I only came home with two bottles of the Frascati (a light, crisp white) and two bottles of olive oil. It was all my suitcase could hold!
