An historic village and the famous “Cypress Avenue”
in the middle of the vineyards of world famous wineries
Nestled in a unique setting, surrounded by rolling hills adorned with beautiful vineyards, the Borgo – Castello di Bolgheri is undoubtedly one of the most evocative and romantic of the Etruscan Coast.
The long Viale dei Cipressi, announced by the famous poet Giosue Carducci in his poem “Davanti a San Guido”, for 5 km accompanies tourists straight into the heart of the village, which has maintained its own identity and still manages to leave its mouth open today visitors.
Davanti a San Guido
I cipressi che a Bólgheri alti e schietti
van da San Guido in duplice filar
If we consider only the inner part of the walls it does not take much time to visit the village … but around there is a way to discover.
If you want to experience a particular experience and enjoy unique landscapes and scents, especially during the harvest period and in autumn, walk along the splendid Bolgherese road that crosses the surrounding countryside and offers indescribable sensations. Colors that, depending on the season, range from green to red, from yellow to orange, a marvel for the eyes and for the mind that travels lightly to the distant horizon. Behind each other there are historic vineyards and splendid cellars where the most prestigious Bolgheri DOC wines are produced, which have made Bolgheri famous throughout the world. If you love wine you are in your world and there is no better time to organize a nice tasting and maybe bring home an exquisite souvenir of your Tuscan holiday. Among the most famous wines of Bolgheri we remember: the Sassicaia, the wines of Ornellaia and Masseto, Guado al Tasso, Le Macchiole, Grattamacco and Michele Satta.
