Entrance to the Wine Estate of Eucaliptus

The wine estate of Eucaliptus is named after the eucalyptus trees growing on it. Like so often, wine is not the only product in Bolgheri. Besides their own olive oil, fruit and vegetable is offered directly during shop opening times in the mornings and afternoons. One can spend ones holiday on the wine estate - some apartments are available.

In the Tasting Room of Eucaliptus

Eucaliptus produces white and red wines. They are sold directly at the estate. I didn't see them in the local wine shops. They seem to be rather traditional and rather low-priced for Bolgheri standards. They surely aren't suitable for years of storage and are no match to the famous first class products of other producers. Doubtlessly here the wine is closer to food than to status symbols. But those looking for a couple of boxes of unpretentious Bolgheri to go along with dinner without putting it in the spotlight, have come to the right place.

On the label the nice kitschy portrait of a young woman - the painting is in family possession.
