Be sure to tour the winery, take in the tastes and sights of this quaint Tuscan hideaway. Then perch on one of the many overlooks in town and let the Timeless landscape so the your soul.

“Top of the hill Winery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

Our drive to Volpaia thru the winding roads was great. Thru a valley and up into the sunshine to this small area just north of Radda in Chianti. The winery itself is an old castle that has been renovated. The entry has a shop full of wine and olive oil. The winery has a restaurant attached and is very good. There is a small fee for the tour..6 €. Just looking at the buildings and the scenery makes one want to just languish with a glass and contemplate life. Worth the drive!

“Wonderful wine tour and tasting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

Castello di volpaia is located in a charming, medieval village in Radda. Upon driving up and entering, we were instantly impressed by the place. Our tour of the grounds and the cellars were informative and interesting.

Our tour guide told us she was new to volpaia. Unfortunately I can't recall her name. She was very wonderful and made our experience at Volpaia even better! She was very knowledgeable about the wine making process and the village's history. The wines and olive oil were delicious. We brought some home and plan to purchase more in the future.

Most of all this winery is very down to earth unlike some others we visited which appeared pretentious and spoke of their wines and winery in an irritating and arrogant manner. Being of Italian descent and a frequent traveler to Italy, I feel this winery gave a true exhibit of Italian culture. I would highly recommend this castello and village tour as a true chianti experience and a chance to taste some delicious wines.

“Great Time Off the Beaten Path”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

The little town, the winery, wine tasting were all a treat. We topped it off with a great lunch
at the little restaurant on the left as you walk in from the parking lot. (Fee for the winery tour,
reservations recommended)

“Just divine...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

What can you say more than divine... The place is just breathless for its beauty. Half way in between Siena and Florence, it is ideal to stop by this marvelous place and take a moment for yourself to cheer life with a glass of vine.

I've been living since a long time in Italy, but this place really stole my heart for its charme. Pleasant bar with a very friendly tenant, nice food and excellent vine.

Too bad the shop was closed for some mysterious reason. We did not have the chance to buy the local olive oil and some vine. Until next time.
