The Winery

OVERVIEW

The Guado al Tasso estate is located near Bolgheri on the Tuscan coast, 96 kilometers (60 miles) to the southwest of Florence. The 300 hectares (750 acres) planted to vineyards on the property are in the center of the so-called” Bolgheri amphitheater”: rolling hillsides which surround a splendid plain which slopes gently towards the sea and create a micro-climate with unique characteristics. Guado al Tasso, the flagship wine of the estate, expresses all of the force and suppleness of this corner of the upper Maremma. It has contributed to raise Bolgheri to the level of the most important areas of Europe’s viticulture, expressing a decisively Mediterranean character of power, elegance, and balance.

HISTORY

1800

The noble della Gherardesca family began to be involved in the production of wine in their Bolgheri holdings as early as the second half of the 17th century. But it was with Guido Alberto della Gherardesca, who lived from 1780 to 1854, that a significant change occured.
