The product par excellence of the Pisa area is the "Nettare di Bacco" wine, as it was called by the ancient Romans.

A fascinating tour of the wine producing tradition and the production of the quality vines  (white and red, dry and amabile) starts from the Colline Pisane (Pisan Hills), which are typically covered in vines, as far as Valdera, where rows of vines are alternated with the terraced olive groves and orchards, and to some zones of the Val di Cecina, or Cecina Valley. This tour takes in the cellars, the vineyards and the wine tasting sessions, uncovers the beauty of the architecture, environment and food and wine and presents a calendar of village festivals and fairs.

Pisa Province is crossed by two Wine Routes that merge wine production with the attractiveness of the landscape and of the cultural and historical heritage of their respective areas.

The Wine Route of the Etruscan Coast is shared with the province of Livorno and goes through some municipalities of Val di Cecina and counts the Montescudaio DOC among the Pisan wines. This route presents two varieties of wine: Red (an intense colour and perfume, dry and full bodied) and White, led by the straw yellow colour and fruity aroma of the Trebbiano Toscano.

The Wine Route of the Pisan Hills is all enclosed within the boundaries of Pisa Province and features the Chianti DOCG of the Colline Pisane (a quiet red wine for any occasion, that improves with age); the Bianco San Torpè DOC (a dry, balanced white with a delicate taste and lively aroma) and the Vin Santo San Torpè DOC.

The red, white and rosé IGT Toscano are also produced throughout the Province.

All year round the Wine Routes treat visitors and wine lovers to hamlets and centres of art. Hospitality is especially charming in the many country houses, which also offer the chance to visit their cellars and vineyards and take part in wine tastings, often accompanied by local products.
