The cost is 15€ a person, the tour is conducted personally by the winery owner and normally takes 1,5-2 hours in function of the visitors’ interest. Purchase of wines is possible but not necessary. The prices of our wines range from 15€ to 35€ a bottle.

We have found the Batzella Winery by chance, but the decision we made to visit this place was really worth it. If you don’t want to visit the big wineries but still enjoy the characters and personality of the Bolgheri wines - this place is for you. I can’t but say only good words about the family and the winery. Mr. Batzella turned up to be a nice and pleasant man who also speaks fluent English which was a good point for us. The tour was beautiful, from the vines to the cellar, to the fermentation tanks and warehouse. We learned how the Bolgheri region originally started to be a wine region, what is the modern trends in the Tuscany winemaking and also the unique story of Mr. Batzella himself. In the end of the excursion we tried some really nice wines, from which we personally liked the Tâm - a really passionate wine that truly accords with its name. Thank you very much once again and wish you only a great success for you, your wife and son in the future! By the way, missing your dog also, she was a funny tip in our trip! Best of luck!

We just arrived from our two week vacation and this was one of the highlights of our trip. We were looking forward to it and we were not disappointed. We happened to be the only people on this tour so we had Serena’s undivided attention! She is so down to earth, very informative and made us appreciate Bolgheri and the region’s wines even more. The grounds were immaculate and she was generous with the tastings (I lost count) that was paired with bread and their amazing olive oil. We prefer red over white but both were so good we bought several bottles of both. I researched a while before deciding on Terre del Marchesato and we can’t wait to go back! Thank you Serena!

Terrazza Mascagni

Reviewed By Britalian83 - Livorno, Italy

The most iconic place in Livorno: its checkered tiles and white bannister make it a simply unique promenade by the sea. From here you can watch the sun set until the sky turns red and the Gorgona Island becomes a black silhouette towards the horizon, all the while listening to the sound of the crashing waves and to the banter of locals. People from Livorno come here night and day, rain or shine, for a stroll, for a quick dip during the lunch break, to take a moment for themeselves. This is where I come when I need to clear my mind; there's something intimate yet glorious about this piace. Great for families with children, the Acquarium is close by. There are a lot of cafes, bars and restaurants around, as well as a dance club and an american diner/music venue. In the summer weekends, after the pub or club, people often come here with an ipod and speaker to dance the night away, creating amazing impromptu parties.

Clean and beautiful water, easy street parking (we arrived either early in the morning or at the end of the day, in September - I guess in August things might be different), short walk through pine forest and free showers. As far as free beaches go this one is particularly good!
