General Information about Bolgheri Wine Tasting Tour
It’s hard to believe but there is still a little unknown gem to be seen in Tuscany. A jewel that has become famous amid worldwide wine connoisseurs and is now ready to let you taste its treasures. Whether you are an average consumer, a wine enthusiast or a pro, Bolgheri will let you fall in love with its special wine history, its Supertuscans production and noble roots.
The drive from the port of Livorno will take you South to the entrance of Upper Maremma. A harsh yet gentle piece of inland, along the Etruscan coast. Umbrella pine trees and vineyards everywhere are the main features of this fertile wine land together with centuries old cypress trees.
You will be delighted with the visit of the first wine estate including the tour of the cellar and tasting. An open air national monument, the five km long stunning cypress lane from San Guido will then take you to the medieval hamlet of Bolgheri. A tiny village of enormous prestige in the wine world.
During your time here you will enjoy a delicious Tuscan lunch and spend some time discovering the center of town. Bolgheri, once the home of Nobel prize winner Poet Giosuè Carducci, is now the capital of this wine region and also the birth place of Bordeaux-style wines made in Tuscany such as Sassicaia, Ornallaia and Guado al Tasso, just to name a few!
Wine tasting will continue to keep you in good company during the afternoon as well. We will visit another wine producer. On the return trip to Livorno, we will make a stop for gelato. Return to the port at approximately 5/5:30 pm.
