2017-10-25Great Bolgheri wine tour - Ornellaia and Sassicaia
Memorable Tour in Bolgheri! We were picked up promptly at our cruise ship in Livorno and wished to the Bolgheri area of Tuscany. Our guide did an excellent job to giving us the history of the area and viticultural how it differs from the rest of Tuscany. We stopped at Ornellaia, Osteria San Guido Enoteca that serves as a tasting venue for Sassicaia and at and a small winery Guado de Gemoli. Ornellia was the highlight since the property is so beautiful and the wines so delicious (not unlike Peter Michael Winery in Napa Valley). The mean at Osteria San Guido Enoteca was really first class as were the Sassicaia wines we tasted. The tour took about four hours and we were taken back to our ship in plenty time. Memorable Wine Tour of Bolgheri! I recommend it and our guide to anyone who wants to see a great area of Tuscany!
