• Wine tasting in Bolgheri

    The world's top wines Sassicaia and Ornellaia await you in Bolgheri

A day in Bolgheri for an exclusive wine tasting opportunity


This off-the-beaten-track full-day tour departing from central Florence provides an exceptional opportunity to learn about some outstanding Tuscan wines that normally only wine connoisseurs get  to taste.

A two hours' private transfer with an English-speaking driver will take you to Bolgheri to sample Ornellaia 'Supertuscan' and Sassicaia wines, ranking among the highest-prized wines in the world.

There will be ample time to visit Bolgheri and get to know some more of the local culture. Bolgheri itself is a quaint Medieval village in Southern Tuscany not far from the Maremma sea-coast, and is nestled in a countryside characterized by vineyards and olive groves.

The village was made immortal by the Tuscan poet Giosuè Carducci, the first Italian to win a Nobel Prize for Literature in 1906, who portrayed its beauty in the verses of one of his best-known poems.

Before heading back to Florence, you can buy or order the wines and the products tasted.

This exclusive small-group tour includes full round-trip transportation with English-speaking driver, guided tasting and lunch with typical products of the Tuscan Maremma.
