Welcome Activities February 2018
Join in us for a real Wine Tasting Tour!
Tuscany is like a great bottle of wine: lovingly created and carefully aged, and the longer you spend contemplating it, the better it gets.
The vineyards of the Etruscan Coast produce prestigious wines. In the Bolgheri area and its surroundings, some of the best Tuscan wines renowned around the world are produced. The Super Tuscan Sassicaia, produced by Tenuta San Guido, is probably the most famous (and expensive) as it’s considered one of the finest Italian red wines.
Friday the 23nd February at 14:00 MEETING POINT IRO Office
The Bus will be back to Pisa at around 19:00.
Visiting TERRE DEL MARCHESATO WINERY will be an authentic travel into the history and culture of wine, as well through the experimentation of your senses, leading all of you to know the cellar, the wines and the winery’s philosophy.
The tour consists in a visit to the vineyard, a visit to the winery and canteen, accompanied by explanation of the techniques, to end with a wine and olive oil tasting in the tasting hall.
At the end of the Winery tour we will have a visit of the precious little village of Bolgheri, famous for its Viale dei Cipressi that leads to the village and full of small souvenirs shops, bars and restaurants.
The tour costs 10€ to pay directly at the place but we need a confirmation email from you if you’d like to take part at the tour.
