Visit the lovely town of Bolgheri on the Etruscan coast, and the area that produces Super Tuscan IGT wines. Depart from either Florence or Siena on a full-day tour and explore vineyards, taste wines, and enjoy free time in medieval Castagneto Carducci.
What to Expect
Spend a full day touring the amazing Bolgheri wine area in the comfort of a luxury vehicle. Enjoy the drive to Bolgheri along the cypress-lined Via Bolgherese. The small town boasts the 11th-century castle of the Gherardesca family, where poet Giosuè Carducci lived during his childhood.
After visiting Bolgheri you’ll enjoy a drive through seemingly endless vineyards to an winery where you’ll be able to sample some fine wines with an expert wine guide. You’ll be introduced to Tuscan wines, wine-making in general, and to the latest trends in viticulture. In addition, you’ll visit one of the prestigious wineries that produce the famous Sassicaia, Ornellaia, and Tignanello wines.
If you’d like to dip your toes in the Mediterranean Sea, you can take a walk through the fragrant coastal pine groves down to the beach before heading back to your hotel.
