A picture-perfect day awaits you in the beautiful Bolgheri countryside. Considered to be "rebels" of the wine world, the term "Super Tuscan" came into vogue in the late 1980s, when a handful of reds from the Italian region of Tuscany gained some international attention. The wines were sold as "vini da tavola", or table wines, because their use of international varietals, principally Cabernet Sauvignon, made them ineligible for official wine categories. They were "super" Tuscan reds - superior in quality and outside an official premium wine designations.

Today you will enjoy two winery estate visits with tastings and tours plus a sumptuous wine-paired lunch at one of the estates.
