Bolgheri Top Wines Private tour

The day experiencing Super Tuscans in the amazing Bolgheri wine area will start from your accommodation when our driver collects you in a comfortable, luxury vehicle. We will reach Bolgheri, a beautiful town situated in the heart of the Etruscan coast. It is famous for its Viale dei Cipressi (Avenue of Cypresses), described so eloquently in the poem by Giosue Carducci. The are 2.347 cypresses! Bolgheri is the land where the Super Tuscan IGT brand was born in 1968. This “terroir”, to use a French word, made the luck of a few wine producing estates. The cultivation of wines was traditionally on a household scale being that Bolgheri is a seaside town. However, owing to its high standards, Bolgheri is still famous for the wines it produces. This includes the development of Sassicaia, Ornellaia and Tignanello, utilising the Super Tuscan tradition. In 1994, the creation of Bolgheri Rosso and Rosso Superiore showed the recognition of international grapes. These Tuscan red wines are international blends including Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Merlot and Sangiovese – leading to worldwide recognition for the excellent quality of its winesAfter visiting Bolgheri, we will drive among endless vineyards to an exquisite winery where we will sample some spectacular wines under the expert guidance of your winery guide. We will be introduced to Super Tuscan wines, to wine-making in general and to the latest trends in viticulture. We will visit the prestigious wineries that produce the famous wine of Sassicaia, Ornellaia and Tignanello worldwide renowned for the best quality. A delicious lunch awaits us in the medieval hill hamlet of Castagneto Carducci overlooking Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards and the sparkling Tyrrhenian sea. In the afternoon we will visit another winery or possibly an olive press where you can learn how extra-virgin olive oil is made and taste this liquid gold straight out of the press. If you also wish to drench the toes in the Mediterranean Sea, you can be accompanied for a walk through the fragrant coastal pine groves down to the beach before heading back to your hotel.
