What's great about Rome & Lazio food?
We might sound a bit like food snobs but Italian cuisine really does live up to its reputation. And since much of Lazio is agricultural, local farmers are proud of their heritage, many using organic methods. In fact the Slow Food movement started in Rome - back in the 1980's Carlo Petrini and a group of activists worked to defend regional traditions, quality food, gastronomic pleasure and the traditional Italian slow pace of life.
Italian food can't be defined as a whole - each region, and even the provinces within those regions, have their own culinary identity, so ingredients might be the same, or similar, but the dishes and local food customs are incredibly diverse.
With our itineraries you'll be tasting authentic cuisine, using local seasonal produce, prepared and cooked by local chefs.
What's great about Rome & Lazio wines?
Lazio, as a wine region, is an unexpected surprise - with increasing numbers of estates producing award-winning wines - offering an enogastronomic journey into varying territories with diverse micro-climates and soils.
With some vines dating back to pre-Roman times, you will be tasting the past and the future, through the unique aromas and flavours once served in surrounding noble villas and inns, now expertly brought into the 21st century. Established estates and emerging modern wineries (often run by generations of the same family) cleverly intertwine tradition and innovation.
Several of the vineyards in our portfolio are quite small and productions is often in limited quantities (just a few thousand bottles per year) making it difficult to satisfy demand from overseas markets and therefore the only place to find these wines is right here in the region.
Wine-tasting in Lazio is a delightful way to escape the hustle and bustle of Rome and a unique opportunity to sample and purchase some very interesting wines!
