Any authentic wine connoisseur has heard about “Super Tuscans” wines and it’s right here in Bolgheri, where they were “born” so to speak, around the middle of the ‘ 70ties, with the very first one that in the meanwhile it has become a “cult ” among wine lovers from all over the world i.e. SASSICAIA !
I will be more than glad to tell you more about the genesis of Super Tuscan wines, their characteristics, what makes them so different from the other “traditional” Tuscan wines and why they have been capable to win the hearth of so many wine enthusiasts worldwide.
Big attention will also be dedicated to the choice of the restaurant for lunch. I will take care to select the right place for you, where you will have the possibility to continue your educational wine & food experience , always with respect for your own personal tastes and eventual dietary orientations !
Just for your reference, consider for this tour an average extra expense of 60Euro – 80Euro per person per winery (we will stop at 2 wineries for visit and tasting) and about 100/120Euro per person for the gourmet lunch with wine pairing. However with regard to lunch, whether you were not interested in the “gourmet lunch with wine pairing” you can always eat well (about 50/60Euro per person), choosing directly from the menu according to your own personal tastes, appetite and budget !
