A joy to the palate, these wines can be served with typical local products: here the cuisine is excellent - both sea and land food. It ranges from blue fish and palamita to wild boar and game, all cooked according to traditional methods and accompanied by fragrant breads prepared in wood-fired ovens, seasoned with scented oils. There are even more particular specialties such as the violet artichoke of Venturina.

For a trip back in time, visit Populonia, the Etruscan necropolis overlooking the sea. It's located on top of a hill from which you can enjoy an incredible view of the Gulf of Baratti.


End your trip with a regenerating stop not far from the sea in the various spas in this area, from Thalassotherapy in Marina di Castagneto to the natural thermal springs of Venturina Terme and Sassetta, an oasis of peace in the midst of woods and pine forests where you can pamper yourself with wellness treatments.
