Bolgheri and Super Tuscans

Land of Super Tuscan wines, to enjoy Ornellaia and Sassicaia.

Bolgheri wine tours

Guided Tour in English

Bolgheri is the land where the Supertuscan IGT bland was born in 1968. This “terroir”, to use a French word, made the luck of a few wine-producing estates. The more famous wineries have regular visiting hours on fixed days of each week (Monday to Friday) and charge an admission fee. All wineries are usually closed during the grape harvest.


Highlights
  • Full day tour with English speaking driver.
  • Discover 2 quality wineries in Bolgheri wine region
  • Wine tasting of Ornellaia, and Le Macchiole Super Tuscan wines.
  • Gourmet lunch at the Enoteca San Guido with Sassicaia wine pairing.

This tour starts early in the morning from Florence. The journey will be 2 hours along the highway. Bolgheri is a small wine region on the Tyrrhenian coast, set south of Livorno.

The stop at the 2 wineries also includes an excursion into the vineyards and the cellars. The visit will be conducted in English by the staff of the cellars themselves. In the end, you will gather around a table of the elegant wine tasting room to taste the best Bolgheri wines production.

Usually, this tour includes two wineries chosen from the following list: Argentiera, Ornellaia,  Le Macchiole, Grattamacco, Guado al Tasso, Campo alla Sughera, and Franco Chiappini. You can also ask to have included in the tour the Ornellaia cellar

WARNING!

The Ornellaia winery must be booked far in advance the tour date.  When Ornellaia is not available, the company books Guado al Tasso or Le Macchiole which are two wineries of the same level.

Sassicaia is a label of an important winery named Tenuta San Guido, please notice that this cellar is not open to the public. DO NOT ask us to have a wine tour in there.  What we can do is to make a reservation at their gourmet restaurant Enoteca San Guido with a special menu with a wine pairing with Sassicaia
