Private Winery Tours

Enjoy a day out and a delicious wine tasting with lunch.  Choose from the following packages or let us create a unique trip for you.  All the adventures include your travel in our private vehicle.


  1. Magical Tuscan Borgo

Admire the gorgeous Italian scenery as you’re driven to a charming tiny Borgo, beautifully reconstructed to conserve the original character of the setting.  Fascinating private guided tour of the winery with a tasting in the amazing “library” of wine.  Lunch in an award winning osteria with Tuscan specialties prepared as you’ve never seen before.  €600 for two guests. Option to visit Siena can be added.


  1. A Gem of an Umbrian Castle

Go back in time on a trip to a small historic castle nestled in gentle hills covered in vines.  A private guide lets you explore the castle from turret to cellar, hear the tales of the castle’s past and taste the superior wines made on the premises by one of Italy’s most important wine making families. Lunch in a romantic ancient abbey nearby.  €500 for two guests.  Opportunity to visit Orvieto if you wish.


  1. Lazio’s Hidden Treasure

Rome is the capital of Italy but it is not known as the capital of Italian wine.  Discover a truly special winery dedicated to bio-organic production of highly rated wines made with indigenous grapes from the region.  Taste wines descended from those imbibed by the Caesars of ancient Rome.  Stroll in the vineyards and olive groves overlooking the sea and visit the ancient temple of Temple of Hercules, which dates back to the 1st century BC.  Private lunch on the winery’s scenic terrace or in the stately dining room, weather depending.  €500 for two guests.  A visit to Castel Gandolfo, the Pope’s summer residence, can be added.

  1. Secrets of Le Marche

Visit a private olive oil producer and have a master class among the trees.  See the workings of the oil mill and taste the results on fresh bruschette toasted over the fireplace in the producer’s fabulous vaulted cellar with a finger food buffet and sparkling wine aperitivo.  Travel the winding road with Gran Sasso on one side and the Adriatic Sea on the other.  Visit a wonderful old winery, recently invigorated by the next generation, taste their delicious wines after a tour of their rustic cantina.  Lunch prepared with local specialties by a top chef in a charming agriturismo with a spectacular view and pretty grounds. €750 for two guests.  Option to stay the night in the very well appointed agriturismo and visit the medieval city of Ascoli.

Photography Packages

Will Chaplin is a trained and experienced professional photographer.  He goes to great lengths to get to know his clients and understand what results they want to achieve.  Will is utterly at ease with everyone, everywhere, having spent many years surrounded by animals, children, old folks and strangers in foreign lands.

Choose from one of the following packages or contact us directly to discuss your requirements.

  1. Family Photo Shoot

A one hour shoot of your family at a single Roman location of your choice (which could be as simple as your home or a well known site, such as the Colosseum).  The shoot will include a mix of family member groupings.  You will receive a digital portfolio of 20 photographs to keep.  €250 per one hour session.  The option to view all photos taken and receive professional quality prints can be added.

  1. High School Senior Photos

We all know school photographs do not always portray our teenagers in their best light.  A half day shoot while wandering the streets of Rome’s historic center on foot often brings out the true spirit of a high schooler.  Photos will include posed and casual montage style portraits of your child.  You will receive a digital portfolio of 30 photographs to keep.  Time will depend upon the mood of the subject!  Parents are welcome to come along, although this does not always add to the quality of the results.  As a father of six and longtime member of the AOSR PTO, Will is experienced, relaxed and reliable in the company of young people.  He is very happy to work with your child, one on one, if you wish.  €350 per morning or afternoon session.  The option to view all photos taken and receive professional quality prints can be added.

  1. Our Family in Rome in a Day

This is a family shoot, only super-sized!  Spend a day in Rome with your family, on foot and in the comfort of our private vehicle, getting those once in a lifetime shots at the most well known sites and monuments around the Italian Capital.  Choose six locations and let Will capture your family spirit through his camera lens.  Total shoot/travel time will be approximately 6 hours, with a meal and rest break in the middle.  You choose your time block (understanding that a 6am start or a midnight finish can bag that “all to ourselves” look at a major site).  €750 per day.  The option  to view all photos taken and receive professional quality prints can be added

 Italian Adventure Shoot

 A photo journey of your own making.  A day trip by train or in our private vehicle to the destination of your choice.  Or expand and create an unforgettable album by visiting several locations over a few days.  This is a bespoke option, we are happy to work with you and create the photos you dream about.  Package cost and details to be determined.
