Gianpaolo gave us a wonderful tour of this small winery, followed by some wine-tasting outdoors on their cute patio. We then availed of their picnic basket service and had a delicious fresh picnic with a bottle of wine in the vineyards!Definitely worth a visit!

We were staying at a partner hotel who provided free tours for hotel guests. As a free activity, it was just fine. Compared to other winery tours and tastings, it was below average. The property is beautiful, but the guide was not knowledgeable about the...More

Travelled here with my lovely wife on honeymoon. This was only a short break (3 nights) as a getaway - now it is definitely a must to get a car as this place is rather remote 111km from Pisa in central Tiscany. It was described...More

Stopped by while on the way to great restaurant in Lamole. Free tasting of four local chianti classico wines. All really good so we bought a couple of bottles. Professional and kind service.

Stunning location surrounded by vineyards. However difficult to find ( don't rely on your satnav) and 2-3 kms out of Radda. So a bit isolated. Our (superior) room was dismal, limited essentials and the reception we got was somewhat impersonal . Restaurant is only ok...More

This was my favorite 'hotel' during our 2 week trip to Italy this fall. It was like an old farmhouse, but renovated, with each room seeming to be individualized and perfect. The breakfasts were also the best of my two week stay, as was the...More

Castelvecchi is a very small winery that offers free tasting to those who make the drive. During the summary, I believe they are open from 1030-630pm (they close during lunch time). They make the best Chianti Classico that I've ever had and are well worth...More
