Announcing the ROMA Winery Vineyard!

The northern slope of the Gardens of Maecenas have been planted with dark, jucy grapes in order to make some official ROMA wine. They will ripen through the summer and we'll pick them in the fall.

Some of the early harvest is already being pressed. Come to the vineyard (next to the Cave of the Sibyl to take advantage of the fertile soil there) and you can help stomp the grapes. Climb into the vat and touch the nearby amphora for instructions how to stomp correctly. You'll even get purple feet!

In order to test the early harvest, touch the large barrel below the vat's spout.

Io Bacchus!
