Here, in Tuscany’s Maremma, you will experience countryside, vineyards and farms producing some of the most trendy wines of the moment: the famous Super Tuscan. This is were the successful vineries of Sassicaia, Ornellaia, and Grattamacco boldly invested in some innovative labels and contributed raising the prestige of the beautiful Bolgheri area.
Other incredible highlight will be the clear waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea, the untouched Orbetello Lagoon, the charming harbors of Porto Ercole and Porto Santo Stefano. Be prepared for perfect pairing of bodily reds with Tuscan meat, and of refreshing whites with the most delicate seafood!
We will then visit the spectacular White Marble Quarry from which Michelangelo’s David comes from, taste delicious Colonnata lard, witness the work of Alabaster artisans, and admire ancient medieval and Etruscan fortifications in Volterra. Eventually we will end this experience in the superb Portovenere, picked by Lord Byron as a perfect source of inspiration for its Romantic compositions.
