A great experience! DANKE, FRANCESCA!
Jul 2021 • Family
Francesca is a PROFI! She did a really great job. We visited 2 different wineries, a big one and an amazing small Demeter winery which Francesca selected for us. It was a great day for my family. And the best: we booked a tour in English - and she could even give us a lot of information in our mother tongue (German). Einfach großartig! Thank you, Francesca. We will come again!

Francesca is the Best!!! Highly, Highly Recommend!
May 2021
Francesca is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! We visited three wineries with her, and it was an absolutely perfect day in Bolgheri. She is very professional, with excellent personal service. She was very knowledgeable with respect to the region and the wine. She was well-connected, providing us with unique access to some amazing wineries. Bust most of all--she was an absolute pleasure to spend the day with!! Like an old friend, she was fun, personable, and just a delight to be around!! Will definitely have a lifelong penchant for wines of this region, especially thanks to Francesca!!

Best Way to Taste Local Wines and Learn the History and Culture in this Wine Region
Nov 2019
If you have a passion for wine, history and culture, I recommend spending a day with Francesca, founder of Bolgheri Wine Tours.

There are hundreds of wineries and restaurants in this beautiful area of Tuscany. Left to our own research, it was difficult to choose where to go during our stay as the choices are overwhelming and span across a mountain.

Francesca picked us up at our hotel and we proceeded to have one of our most treasured days in this beautiful part of the world. Her English is impeccable and her colleagues and connections are valuable when visiting. After discussing our likes, etc. with Francesca in advance of our visit, she had a perfect day planned for us. We toured a more mature family winery first and were treated like royalty. Next, Francesca planned a beautiful lunch for us, based on what we shared as preferences. We enjoyed her company so much we insisted she join as our guest and we had a perfect meal and another warm reception. We went to a second winery, this one 100% biodynamic and were once again blown away by the reception and delicious wine. Finally, we toured the village and shopped, had a coffee and were returned to our hotel. We feel as if we made a friend during out time together; this doesn’t typically happen during a tour.

Wine tasting in Bolgheri
Sep 2019
We were lucky enough to experience an incredible days wine tasting in the Bolgheri region with the experienced and professional Francesca Becucci. She was a pleasure to deal with and organised our tour quickly and flawlessly thanks to her excellent command of English and understanding of our needs. I highly recommend booking a day with her to experience this region. Her knowledge of the industry, the area's rich history and its culture is impressive. We loved our day exploring different wineries and eating region foods with her. She is a charming guide and we are looking forward to returning and discovering more about the area with her. Thank you Francesca!

Excellent Wine Day in Bolgheri
Sep 2019
We were treated to a wonderful day out with Francesca Becucci in Bolgheri visiting three wineries where we gained a good understanding of the development of the interesting wines from this region. Francesca speaks beautiful English and she knows the culture and history of the region very well. We were collected from our B&B in a clean and comfortable vehicle on time and at the agreed pickup point.
We began our tour with a walk around one of the leading wineries followed by a tasting of their exceptional wines. Serious wines indeed...
Our next visit took us to an interesting organic (almost biodynamic) winery nestled in the mountains outside of Bolgheri . Very different but at the same time very interesting. Our visit there included a tasty lunch made by our host (also the winemaker) together with a tasting of their wines.
The final visit for the day took us to one of the well known wineries where quality wines are made in larger volumes. A short tour of the facility was followed by a tasting and a discussion of the wines.
Lots of additional information was provided by Francesca making the tour really special
So thanks so much !!!
Looking forward to visiting Bolgheri with you again

Thank you Errol! You and the group made my day! It has been a real pleasure meeting you and learn about your wine making experience in South Africa. I wish I can visit you in Cape Town one day and share the wines from Bolgheri with your wine club! Let’s keep in touch. All The best and cheers! Francesca

Excellent wine tour
Jul 2019 • Couples
During our stay in Italy, we had the chance to experience a guided wine tour with Bolgheri Wine Tours lead by Francesca who is from Bolgheri and is currently living there.

The short version: A wine tour with Bolgheri Wine Tours is a must do when you are in Tuscany, Italy – Incredible experience lead by a well-educated professional who knows history, culture and of course the wine.

The longer version: Bolgheri Wine Tours offers private tours for groups of minimum two, which we as “first timers” enjoyed a lot. The tour include history about production, the wineries, the town and how Bolgheri made their way onto the wine world map. During our day we visited two different wineries whereof one of them was the 5th biggest in the Bolgheri district, a winery which wines we have already seen on multiple winecards! Tastings, production, history etc. was all on set – Not a finger to set on the tour or the wineries which we enjoyable visited!

Francesca speaks fluently English and haven taken several educations wherefore she for foreign tourist is our opinion is the best choice for a guided tour in Bolgheri.
Our highest recommendations for Bolgheri Wine Tours who we are looking forward to visit again during our next stay in Tuscany!

Kind regards Regitze & Frederik

Our morning started with Francesca picking us up at our B&B. As she drove us through the countryside, she spoke about the region’s rich history and agriculture. Her English is excellent. Traveling on the winding, cypress-tree-lined roads felt like a movie in the making - you see, feel, hear and know you are in a very special place. At the winery, we learned about the entire wine making process. Every question I had was answered. My favorite part of the winery tour itself was learning about the details: seasonal timing, impact of weather, equipment, and grape blending to make the various wines. The tasting was fantastic too. Before Francesca dropped us off at our B&B, we toured the beautiful, quaint town of Bolgheri. I am grateful to Francesca for her time and dedication. This experience would not have been the same without her. Thank you Francesca!

BOLGHERI wine tours is a guarantee! Now we rely on Francesca every time we pass by BOLGHERI .... she is really prepared, she knows the whole area well, and she took us to renowned wineries, organic and biodynamic cellars that respect the territory, fabulous private tastings, and she also led us to taste excellent wine for dinner and lunch, in restaurants with breathtaking views for every palate and wallet. She is Really Unique

AWESOME option for tourists!
Apr 2019 • Couples
Francesca is incredibly informative and passionate about everything from the local history and culture (she’s a native) to the scientific intricacies of winemaking. I had just attended a tasting of Tuscany Sangiovese wines at home in the US two weeks before our visit; I now understand even more about why this region is so well-known for winemaking (we passed a sign calling Bolgheri “The City of Wine”). Anyone traveling to / through this area would do well to add Bolgheri Wine Tours as part of their visit. We can’t wait to make plans with Francesca when she comes to Miami, where we live.
