Bolgheri and the Etruscan Coast

Bolgheri Castle, the historic residence of the powerful Conti della Gherardesca family, still watches over the area and its wine production. The area, which resists mass tourism, is famous for two reasons: the magnificent, well-preserved remains of Etruscan culture, like those in Populonia, and its wine, famous all over the world. The wines produced here are made in small quantities each year, confirming their singularity and commitment to tradition and their roots. Let The Art of Leisure lead you through the discovery of these refined wines and perhaps take a bottle or two home.
