The tale of the territory
Federico Zileri Dal Verme
owner of the estate Azienda Agricola Castello di Bolgheri
The origins of the estate have ancient roots, ever since the property was in the hands of the Counts della Gherardesca.
Since the mid-nineties, resuming the family's secular tradition, Federico Zileri Dal Verme has been at the heart of the project "Azienda Agricola Castello di Bolgheri", a path made of passion and commitment, shared with his parents and a first-rate team.
"I cipressi che a Bolgheri alti e schietti
Van da San Guido in duplice filar"
With these words Giosuè Carducci, Nobel Prize for literature in 1906, described the places of his childhood; and this is how, walking from the sea along the iconic Viale dei Cipressi, one arrives in Bolgheri, from which the DOC takes its name.

The entrance to the Castello di Bolgheri cellar, yesterday and today
The whole estate stretches over both sides of the famous cypress lane, one kilometer before arriving to the town of Bolgheri, a medieval gem situated in the inland of the Etruscan Coast.
The cellar, which dates back to 1796, is the oldest in the area and it is located in the very middle of that town.
