Grosseto is located on the Tuscan wine trail, which will take you to hidden medieval villages, hilly vineyards that sometimes overlook the sea, and of course to wine cellars where you will be able to taste the local wine production.
The first trail is the Trail of wines and flavours of the Maremma hills. It will lead you from Campagnatico to Argentario, then to Magliano in Toscana, before going back through Scansano. You will be able to discover the Morellino di Scansano, the Ansonica dell'Argentario, the Bianco di Pitigliano, Capalbio, Parrina e Sovana.
The second trail - the Trail of Montecucco wines and flavours of the Amiata - will take you from Campagnatico to Castel del Piano, Santa Fiora and Semproniano, to discover the hidden flavours of Montecucco wines.
The third trail, the Trail of wines and flavours of Montereggio and Massa Marittima, will take you through Campagnatico, Massa Marittima and Gavorrano and back through Castiglione della Pescaia to discover Montereggio wines.
While you will encounter many wine cellars along these trails, we have selected for you our two favourite ones.
