Bolgheri, not far from the coast, is immersed in a countryside full of vines and olive trees, while the center shows a remarkable architectural harmony. A distinctive element is the aforementioned red brick castle which gives direct access to the village itself, whose paved alleys and ancient stone buildings are often softened by the geranium blooms.
The life of the village is animated by several artisan shops, wine bars, taverns and restaurants and by their proposal of typical products linked to the not indifferent food and wine tradition of this area. The Bolgheri territory is in fact known for the absolute excellence of wine production, allowed by the particular dry and sunny microclimate that allows the cultivation of a series of vines of Bordeaux origin (such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot).
