Supertuscan wine tasting on Tuscany's coast

Wine Spectator Top100 I GREPPI Bolgheri GREPPICANTE

Perfect wine tour with pairing Tuscan lunch

I GREPPI Bolgheri GREPPICANTE – Here we produce “alchemy…or magic”… Mr. James Suckling defined our Greppicaia, “DECADENT” and judged it 94 pts.!!!

We are a group of wine lovers, scientists, geologists, economists and horticulturalists, who think about wine making differently.

Every drop we produce is an act of alchemy, with the perfect blend of knowledge, passion and creativity!

Science meets art with our wine-making process, every drop we produce is an act of alchemy… or magic.

Science meets history too: understand why the Etruscans first developed wine in this area more than 3 millennia ago… a natural Coliseum between sea and hills.

For enjoying the wine-pairing-LUNCH we will move to the historic center of the picturesque village of Bolgheri.

RARE WINES – Bolgheri & Supertuscans

DURATION:
Duration on-site (hours. ±1): 4

We are a group of wine lovers, scientists, geologists, economists and horticulturalists, who think about wine making differently.

Using our expertise, we look to the past, as well as the present and future, so that our wines will be constantly evolving and improving.

Our understanding of the rocks and soils, the very basis of terroir, helps us to understand why the Etruscans first developed wine in the region millennia ago.

Science meets art with our wine-making process, every drop we produce is an act of alchemy, with the perfect blend of knowledge, passion and creativity!

Our viticulture is incorporating the newest scientific techniques together with the vineyard’s traditional Italian wine-making heritage, as our goal is to make great taste accessible, and share the story behind every bottle.

This PRIVATE experience includes:

  • Guided visit to the vineyards and the cellar
  • Vertical professional tasting of our Supertuscan “Greppicaia
  • Full Tuscan WINE PAIRING LUNCH
