A super-Tuscan wine tour lunch at the prestigious Antinori winery
Tenuta di Biserno is one of the new wineries in Maremma on the Tuscan coast. It is one of the wineries that produce the famous “super-Tuscan” wines. We were heading towards Biserno for our lunch appointment on one of our recent wine tours to Tuscany.
To get to Tenuta di Biserno you go almost all the way down to the sea and head for Bolgheri. Just before you arrive at the village of Bolgheri you turn left onto a small road and soon you will see the famous Campo di Sasso vineyard on your right. Then you have to turn off on a small gravely road leading up into the Maremma hills.
Tenuta di Biserno was created some time back by Lodovico Antinori, after he had sold the Ornellaia vineyard that was one of the pioneers among the super-Tuscans. Today Ludovico runs the Tenuta di Biserno together with his brother Piero Antinori and Umberto Mannoni.
The winemaker in charge at Tenuta di Biserno is Swedish-born Helena Lindberg, helped by the famous consultant Michel Rolland, and the vineyard manager Ranieri Orsini.
Back to our lunch… It is not a bad place to go for lunch on a wine tour. Definitely not. But first, it is not a very easy thing to get into one of the gems of the Antinori family empire. Second, you have to find the way there. Those two things done you arrive at the charming villa. Beautiful. View over the vineyards and the sea.
Then you sit down for lunch. We were there on a hot day so we had lunch in the cool of the mansion’s dining room. Well, you can see for yourself about the lunch on the video.
The wines, we tasted them all (and some grappa), with the lunch. The Insoglio del Cinghiale, from the Campo di Sasso, the Il Pino di Biserno, and their prestige cuvée Biserno.
It is difficult to stand up and leave from a lunch like that. Not so much because of all the wines. Rather because … you just want to sit back and enjoy.
Take a look at our wine tour schedule, Our Tours > Scheduled Wine Tours, to see if we currently have one on the schedule. Here is an exmple of a wine tour to Tuscany. We can also plan a custom made wine tour to Tuscany, or other wine regions in Italy for you.
