Private Bolgheri wine tour
Bolgheri is a modern winemaking region on the coast of Tuscany, around 2 hrs drive from Florence. An early start is required but most of the road is highway, so you can sit back and relax.
We'll choose two of our favorite wineries for you to visit during the day. At this point I better point out that neither Sassicaia nor Ornellaia are on this list. The former no longer accepts visitors, and the latter comes at a premium price and must be scheduled well in advance.
Having said that, our favorites are fantastic smaller wineries that produce great wines and where the experience is more intimate and less commercial.
We'll drive through the region and stop in either Bolgheri village or Castagneto Carducci. Our first visit will be at an organic producer with lovely views over the region. We'll learn about the specific soils and climatic conditions that render this area similar to Bordeaux. We'll taste different wines representative of the modern and soft style of Bolgheri.
Lunch will be in a countryside restaurant and will feature the typical dishes of the region, with a nice bottle of wine.
In the afternoon, we'll visit a second winery located in a different area of Bolgheri and do a second tasting overlooking the vineyards.
