The practice of wine tasting is as old as its production, and in Grottaferrata wine has been produced since the foundation of Rome and it was the Romans who developed the cultivation of vines in Castelli. Marco Tullio Cicerone had a Villa al Tuscolo and Cato in 200 AD. he wrote "[…] of the vine I like not only its usefulness, … but also cultivation and nature itself". The condition of viticulture in Lazio maintained a high level of wealth until the first century of the Roman Empire, when the vineyards began to progressively under the care of the monasteries and under the protection of the religious produced wine and medicinal preparations. Better oenological techniques were introduced and production increased, also because, in the sixteenth century, the wine coming from the territory of the Castelli Romani, in addition to local consumption, had found a large market in Rome. Strengthened by tradition we organize tastings in the best cellars of the castles and in the best oil mills in the area where it is possible to see how the best fruits of our territory are matured and transformed into wine and oil.
