Bolgheri is home to many artisan workshops, wine shops and restaurants, which offer visitors a fine selection of traditional local produce and fine Bolgheri DOC wines. After all, the Bolgheri wine region is renowned worldwide, blessed by a unique microclimate that is both dry and sunny, perfect for Bordeaux grape varieties, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Sassicaia, Ornellaia and Masseto are just three of the extraordinary wineries located here.
The surrounding countryside, which is full of winding country roads like the viale di Bolgheri and the via Bolgherese, is home to countless holiday farms and stables. It is the perfect place for hiking, cycling or horse-riding along the Tuscan Coast.
The village, not far from the coast, is set in countryside amidst olive groves and vineyards, while the town boasts delightful architectural balance.
