Bolgheri & Super-Tuscan Wineries Tour 

Bolgheri, history and wines.

The region of Bolgheri is a coastal area producing some of the best wines in Italy, worldwide placed in the Olympus of the best wines.
Bolgheri is specially known as the birthplace of Giosuè Carducci, one of the greatest poets of the Italian history; the 5 km long road sided with rows of cypress trees, the “Viale dei Cipressi”, drive us back in the XIX century when the poet lived here for some times.
Bolgheri is nowadays even more famous for its "Super Tuscan" wines, including Sassicaja, Grattamacco and Ornellaia wines, all named after the estates laying in this magnificent area. Here, mostly french grape varietals are grown (Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Syrah). For this reason the area is also named “the Bordeaux of Tuscany”, an analogy with the famous French region.
This wonderful countryside is where you will spend the duration of your afternoon, sightseeing incredible green and golden hills, savoring with intriguing wine tasting.
Bolgheri is now almost an exclusive sea-side club packed with the finest boutiques of some of the most renown wine producers, including important names such as Antinori, Gaja, Frescobaldi, Cavallari, Michele Satta, etc. Since these wineries were built from the ground up on largely uninhabited territory, many of the richer companies were able to build stunning wineries that are truly “objets d’art”, beautiful and functionals: Petra and Rocca di Frassinello are among the most famous.
