Outstanding vistas, quiet and friendly. Close to Radda and great location for daily trips. Winery was in production mode and we did a tour of the facility. Rent a car and visit all the little villages nearby. A great place for hiking or biking.

Loved the architecture, wine tour, small restaurants and NO shopping! La Bottega restaurant is the draw but there is also a little bar with a very enticing menu.

Quiet picture-perfect town with a couple of authentic local restaurants--Bar Ucci and La Bottega-- and an excellent winery!

It is a very small village with a beautiful view of the valley around. Everyone there was busy with the grape harvesting. I would have loved to have my bicycle to cycle there

This is a tiny but quaint village, with two good eateries. I believe they are owned by sisters. One is more of a restaurant and the other is a bit more casual, with seating on the square. We enjoyed both places - especially the more casual one, where the owner was very friendly and quite a character.

We visited this Borgo for the restaurant and were pleasantly surprised at this charming place. Nice find and a good destination if you are cycling.

At a short drive from Radda, Volpaia is a must see in this region. Start before sunset and watch the golden rays of the sun transform the vineyards of this region magically. Then walk around the village before you dine in one of the few places here with a gorgeous view of the valley around. Lovely village!

The grapes were being brought in and wine was being made when we were here on the first of October. The town is very scenic with lovely old buildings and there is a wine tasting emporium as well as several restaurants.
