A few miles from Bolgheri there is a place named “La California”; maybe it was fate that led to this area being christened the California of Italy, or indeed, sometimes, the Italian Bordeaux.

All this was due to the two Della Gherardesca sisters, one who married a man of the Incisa della Rocchetta family, and the other one who married one of the Antinori's.
Mario Incisa Della Rocchetta invented Sassicaia, considered by one authoritative international wine magazines to be the most famous Italian wine in the world .

Lodovico Antinori created one of the most fascinating wine-cellars in the world, and for his Ornellaia (now owned by the Frescobaldi family) he received the award for the best Italian Cabernet Sauvignon from the magazine Decanter in 1995.

Piero Antinori transformed the production of rosé, very fashionable in the seventies, into the magnificent red wine Guado Al Tasso, which immediately found a place among the top wines in the country. But the process did not stop with Sassicaia, Ornellaia and Guado Al Tasso; since then there has been a flowering of young and enthusiastic producers, who soon joined the highest echelons in oenology with well-deserved fame, not just in the neighbourhood of Bolgheri, but also with DOC wines from adjacent Montescudaio, Val di Cornia and Elba.

All tours are personally guided by a Sommelier and Wine Connoisseur.
