Private Guided Winery Tour at Ornellaia
Tenuta Argentiera stands in a magnificent piece of Maremma land that unites the countryside and the sea, suspended between woods and Mediterranean scrub. You are in the heart of the small but prestigious Doc Bolgheri, a terroir suited to great red wines.
The name Argentiera has an evocative meaning: it comes from the silver mines that once were in this area of the Upper Maremma, also rich in natural springs and healing waters.
The estate is the closest to the Tyrrhenian coast and at the same time the one that reaches the highest altitude of the entire Bolgherese territory, reaching 200 meters above sea level: this duplicity makes it different from all the others and manages to create a microclimate with characteristics unique.
The tour includes a visit to the Argentiera vineyard, from which the estate takes its name, the place where the iconic Bolgheri Superiore is born. After visiting the cellar, the tour will end with an exclusive tasting to be held in the panoramic room.

cypresses that leads straight to the Castle of Bolgheri.
The famous 19th century Italian poet Giosuè Carducci wrote about the suggestive avenue in his poem “Davanti a San Guido” (In front of San
Beyond its ancient town walls is an angle of Tuscany that feels like a step back in time, a small oasis of Tuscan allure and aristocratic appeal.
The town is dotted with shops and restaurants, neat and well-tended, and is entirely pedestrian. You might want to stop by the Enoteca Tognoni
for a bottle or glass of wine to taste.
