Where we stay

We will be passing the week at one of our favorite wine estates in the Bolgheri DOC. The family run estate is composed of restored cottages and apartments positioned among the vineyard.  The cantina houses a professional kitchen where our meals will be prepared by local cooks using the bounty of the spring harvest. 

Rides will take place in the morning. Afternoons will be spent on site enjoying the saline pool, over wine tastings, and two cooking lessons. 

This is our home town and there is no where we’d rather be riding and hanging out in the springtime– come see why!

Geared for

Cyclists looking to boost their fitness will find the rolling hills and loop rides ideal for summer training. We’ll have flexibility in pace and distance, and plenty of challenging ‘extra-credit’ to add in for the willing.  

This is a good tour for non-cycling spouses that will enjoy peace in the mornings on the estate; afternoon activities such as wine-tastings, two cooking lessons, and other cultural outings throughout the week.  

Tour Highlights

Castagneto Carducci is an area of Tuscany that is referred to as the maremma and is surrounded by layers of hillside stretching toward Siena to the east and the sparkling, blue waters of the Mediterranean to the west. 

The soil here is rich and produces some of Italy’s best wines ( we are in the heart of the Bolgheri DOC ) and extra virgin olive oil, as well as an abundance of delicious fruits and vegetables. The spring terrain will be green and scattered with wild flowers.
