Ornellaia provides a variety of memorable tasting and wine experiences.
Once you enter the gates at Ornellaia, a guided visit begins to discover the historical vineyards and the cellar, where guests are welcomed by the contemporary artworks that comprise the Vendemmia d’Artista project. The exploration continues in the barrique cellar, where French oak ages and preserves the various wines that blend together to create Ornellaia, before reaching the Archivio Storico, the core of the estate.
With the Vendemmia d’Artista project, the estate celebrates the unique character of every Ornellaia vintage. The Vendemmia d’Artista Experience introduces guests to the collection of site-specific artworks on the estate and in the cellar, all of which were created by internationally renowned artists who sought inspiration in Ornellaia.
The Ornellaia Wine Dinner is an immersive experience that begins at sunset. The vineyards, artworks and the cellar reveal their magic in a silent play on light and shadow. Welcome drinks by twilight turn into an exquisite dinner in which Mediterranean cuisine is paired with wines from the Ornellaia estate.
A picnic at Ornellaia is a journey into the senses that blends the art and architecture of the winery with the scenery of Bolgheri that looks out from the vineyards as far as the sea. Beneath the centuries-old Bellaria oak tree, surrounded by vineyards, the experience culminates in a gourmet picnic and a tasting of Poggio alle Gazze dell’Ornellaia.
