Campiglia Marittima, the wine route

Campiglia Marittima is an historical village perched on the hill around the Gherardesca Castle which dominates the valley. Its medieval charm mingles harmoniously with the beauty of the natural surroundings. In the heart of the old town there are a number of noble buildings from the Medici era in which some excellent restaurants have been opened.

In particular, in Palazzo Pretorio, there is the Enoteca Pubblica (‘Public Wine Merchant’) where all the area’s most important wines can be found. The Val di Cornia DOC wine has now reached standards that can be compared to the other DOC labels produced in the Livorno area, representing fair competition for the prestigious wines associated with this part of Tuscany.

Besides the most common red grape varieties such as Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah, visitors to the many wine producers close to the village can also taste some white wines, produced in smaller quantities, based on Vermentino, Clairette, Ansonica and Trebbiano grapes. When it comes to dining, an alternative to the many traditional restaurants and osterie(a more informal kind of restaurant) widely found throughout the area is the agriturismo (accommodation in farmhouses).
