Meeting the Bolgheresi
In the renowned wine district of the Tuscan coast, surrounding the historic hamlet of Bolgheri, winemaking has evolved into a thriving industry over recent decades. It all began with a visionary pioneer, drawing the attention of prominent winemakers from Tuscany, followed by a wave of small farmers. Originally dedicated to vegetables and fruits, these farmers transitioned to producing top-quality wines only 20-30 years ago.
A visit to Bolgheri offers a fascinating insight into this monumental transformation, recounted firsthand by a Bolgherese, a local resident who has witnessed the entire shift in mentality within the local farming community from the 1960s to the present day

 

Visit two representative wineries for a diverse experience
The first, an ancient castle in town, dates back to the 13th century. We will visit its wine cellar with a history dating to the late 18th century. Taste their top two wines and their entry-level one, as you discover the rich past of this unique place.
The second winery is located in the countryside and offers a tasting of four wines that perfectly capture the essence of Bolgheri. The region’s soil, conducive to international grape varieties such as cabernet, merlot and syrah, yields full-bodied and exclusive wines.

 

A walk in the old hamlet
Between the two wineries, we’ll arrive at the charming ancient village of Bolgheri. Nestled at the end of a breathtaking 5-km-long boulevard lined with ancient cypress trees, the town offers a picturesque setting. We’ll pause for a photo opportunity along the road and explore the village on foot. Bolgheri provides numerous options for a light lunch, delightful gelato, or quick shopping before we proceed to the second winery to indulge in more wine tastings


Make your Bolgheri wine tour become a true winemaking experience!
