Vineyards wedged in between wooded hillsides and ancient olive groves.


Bolgheri Territory

The Bolgheri region is a wine zone in the Maremma that runs parallel to the Tuscan coast in the province of Livorno, named after the town of Bolgheri. Unlike many other prestigious vineyard territories throughout Italy, Bolgheri is comparatively flat and low in altitude. Vineyards are wedged in between wooded hillsides and ancient olive groves, and soils are alluvial and rich in minerals, sand, limestone, clay, pebbles, and volcanic rock in the east. The sea is one of the place’s defining characteristics, the sunshine and maritime influence can be found in the intense, red wines.

  • Day 1: Morning

    Private Guided Winery Tour at Campo alle Comete

    Getting to Campo alle Comete is like entering a world suspended between the land and the sky, where one can walk leisurely and be guided by the stars. The name evokes the soul of the place, so rich in history and magic, that it can bring the mind back to childlike images of ancient perfumes and soft dandelions. The atmosphere immediately becomes familiar, thanks to the emotion radiated by the vineyards and the myriad of flavours. With the Tyrrhenian Sea just a few steps away, surrounding the area, Castagneto Carducci rises on the famous Etruscan coast. Outlined by hills that recall an amphitheatre in the background, it is the cradle of Campo alle Comete.

    The light that dominates the landscape, the temperate climate and the well-balanced and rich land allow the 15 hectares of land, with 6,500 / 7,500 plants per hectare, to generate wines with a gentle and also well-defined character. The grape varieties of Campo alle Comete, closely linked to the Bolgheri area, are: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The tour of the winery will end with a private tasting in a dedicated tasting room, and the wines will be paired with a selection of Tuscan cold cuts and Carmasciando cheeses.

    Shared Guided Winery Tour at Ornellaia

    From its position on the hillside close to Bolgheri, The Ornellaia estate lies hidden in the foothills around Bolgheri that face the Mediterranean coast.

    The cool maritime breeze caresses this exceptional Estate and its surrounding olive groves throughout the summer months. During the winter the hills give protection from the cold northern winds.Ornellaia believes that wines should be the truest expression of the terroir from which they come. The diverse nature of the Estate’s soils – marine, alluvial and volcanic – coupled with this maritime climate create an environment in which red and white varietals can express themselves to the full. 

    This myriad of individual parcels of vines fit into this unspoilt landscape like a mosaic, creating a unique expression of beauty and complexity in an exceptional place. While experience, skill and determination have all played their part in enhancing the quality and reputation of Ornellaia, it is the Estate itself that is continual source of inspiration, suggesting unique and exciting ways to capture its natural generosity.
