The small village of Bolgheri, located about 5 km from the farm, is a center of attraction of great interest. The village developed around the medieval castle, was reached along the famous avenue of cypresses, made famous by the nineteenth-century poet Carducci who lived here.
Around town reigns supreme nature and the countryside, with landscapes and views of the vineyards where they play a major role, by coloring the surroundings of a bright green in spring and a warm red in autumn. An emotion can only follow the winding country roads, surrounded by the colors and scents of the great vineyards that give rise to some of the most famous wines of Bolgheri DOC: Sassicaia, Ornellaia, Paleo, Guado al Tasso...
