Rome: Wine Tasting Holiday
The Eternal City
Italy is surely one of the greatest wine producing countries in the world. Unfortunately, local wines from around Rome (Lazio) are not among the very best of the country and tours to wineries are scarce (and not very promising). The wines made in close proximity to Rome are collectively known as Castelli Romani and there are nine communes that produce wine in the Alban Hills, which are just south of Rome. If you are a wine fanatic however, you could opt to visit vineyards in these regions of your own accord.
