Tenuta di Bolgheri

Tuscany by the Sea




The Tenuta di Bolgheri is located in Western Tuscany, along the coast of the Upper Maremma, an area noted for its Granducal history. The estate, bordering the village of Bolgheri, is set among the hills of Bibbona, in a highly-acclaimed wine growing region celebrated for its unique "terroir." Castles and watch towers, surrounded by lush forests, frame olive groves and vineyards that reach down to the Tirranean Sea. The Island of Elba, just off the coast and facing the estate, offers protection from strong sea winds.The Villa dates back to the 18th century, during which time it was used by the Accademia dei Georgofili, an agrarian research institute founded by Leopold II in 1753, as a base from which to study the local agriculture. In subsequent periods, the building was used for a variety of purposes before being completely restored. The style of the Villa, combined with its exceptional position, offers a truly enchanting atmosphere.
