I was at Quercerto last week... not to stay overnight, but to enjoy a cooking class with Laura. Can you picture buying local ingredients fresh from Castellina town, preparing a simple meal with fresh herbs and country know-how, enjoying a tour of the wine facilities in the vineyard, and then enjoying your meal al fresco overlooking the Sangiovese vines and the Tuscan hillside? If you can imagine it, you can do it. Laura speaks and provides the courses in beautifully accented English. This place is lovely, charming and the hospitality is warm and genuine. I can only imagine it would be the same if you stay here in this charming, off-the-beaten path villa/ vineyard. I hope I will return one day to stay and enjoy the organic wine and breezes again on the patio! When you visit, save a meaty treat for Oswaldo the cat ... he's an unofficial greeter.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located in Querceto, between the Sienese towns of Castellina and Radda in Chianti, already mentioned with its estate on the maps of the sixteenth century Guelph Captains, the company is extending its property for more than 125 acres, of which 27,20 will become vineyards, 26,20 of which are enrolled in the Chianti Classico DOCG and about 7 are for olive groves. Since the late 1980s, this estate, strengthened by one of the first agritourism licenses granted in the Chianti area, has been specializing in accommodation and providing a unique experience for our guests. Our main farm complex today includes preserving all traces of its history and evolution over the centuries, which makes it very original and suggestive, in addition to its great architectural interest. Eight guest suites from 2 to 8 beds are available, all with a fully equipped kitchenette, bathroom with shower, independent gas heating, fireplace, telephone, Wi-Fi internet access, TV, and a small private sitting area. A series of initiatives designed to further enliven a stay include wine-tasting events, family dinners and cooking classes that are dedicated to traditional regional dishes. ... more less
