The morning starts with a visit to one of my favorite of wonderful small artisan mozzarella di bufala and ricotta cheese producers in the area. We’ll observe the mozzarella cheese making process and learn why this cheese is so fabulous and cannot be produced elsewhere – not even in most of Italy! We’ll have lunch here and try out all of the local bufala products.
We’ll then drive up winding roads to a fabulous medieval hill town, built on the top of a rock to defend the Agro Pontino area. One can walk on the same narrow winding streets that were paved during the XIV century, visit the majestic Prince Caetani’s castle and have the sensation of being a XIX century traveller.
We’ll end our day with a visit to Lazio’s top winery and one of the region’s top estates. Its wines are continually finalists for the Gambero Rosso wine guide’s top “3 glass” awards. You’ll enjoy sampling a few of these wonderful wines.
