This little town/village is one of the most romantic places I've ever seen even on TV. :))) It is as if you have taken it our from the Medeval times' movie or something. It must be visited. And by the way, its restaurants/osterias are worth it to be visited. ;)

A bit off the beaten path but worth the trek. We were the last tour of the day, on a Sunday, so it felt a bit rushed...understandable, though. End of the tour ended with a tasting in a private wine bottle "library". Fabulous!

We've enjoyed drinking Volpaia Chianti Classico & Reserva for a while, and to be able to visit the producing Winery was a special treat ! The tour was quite informative & interesting. Fascinating to see the old ways juxtaposed with the latest wine high technology. Fun winding stone stairway up to tasting room - nice pours of fine Volpaia wines.... More

Had a great lunch with a tasting of all their wines. Just perfect. The Chianti Classico Riserva was the best wine for me.

The trip up the mountain was beautiful. When we arrived we came upon a lovely village. We proceeded to meet with Giovanna (Jo) the owner of the winery. We entered the kitchen where we took an extended cooking class in Tuscany cooking with a twist in the recipes from Jo. The kitchen and the class were hands on and phenomenal.... More

Very small town around the castle. its exactly why people go to Tuscany. Small, old, well restored castle in the centre. Wine testing experience next to it.

We took the tour at 10 euros a pop, which included a taste of a couple of small tasters of their wines. That's not a lot of money, for a fairly extensive tour of the hidden world of wine that lies behind Volpaia's ancient doors. It was informative enough, and the tasting room was amazing, housing, as it does, the... More

Volpaia is a beautiful, picturesque hilltop village, of, I have been told, only 94 people. It is storybook. Don't miss it.

Castello di Volpaia is magical! We drove through absolutely stunning Tuscan landscape on our journey there, and were absolutely delighted with the wines, the food and the tour. The village itself is perfectly maintained, and it is wonderful to see the ancient buildings being lived in and used. Give yourself plenty of time to enjoy the drive and the village.... More

My wife and I spent 3 enchanting nights here in late Sept into Oct. our favorite experience here was wine tasting at the lunch restaurant. The service, wine, and food were all well planned and exquisite. Our only regret was that this lunch restaurant was not open in the evening to dine after traveling during the days to Volterra and...
