The estate has been in the hands of the Counts della Gherardesca for centuries and has been passed down from generation to generation. At its core, the development of the estate always valued and respected agriculture as its guiding principle.

Embracing the family's secular tradition, Federico Zileri Dal Verme has been at the helm of the project “Azienda Agricola Castello di Bolgheri” since the mid 1990s. His vision, passion and commitment, shared with his parents and a first-rate team, brought innovation to the original processes and techniques, and established a new path for the ancient winery.

Since 2005, winemaker Alessandro Dondi joined the property and embraced the project from the very beginning with the ambition of creating a product of character and quality.

"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 whole estate spans across the last kilometer before arriving at the town of Bolgheri, on either side of the famous Viale dei Cipressi. The cellar, which dates back to 1796, is located in the heart of the medieval town, and is the oldest in the area.


In the cellar of the Azienda Agricola Castello di Bolgheri, founded in 1796, we have been passionately producing wines from this area with the scents of a unique history.
