“Best in Class”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

We had booked a 3 night stay in "resort" in the same town. That turned out to be a disaster but the only saving grace was that the manager recommended we stay at Capannelle.

From the moment we drove our car up the hill to this small winery, Capannelle exceeded our expectations. We were greeted warmly and offered an espresso. Our room was lovely and the bathroom had little olive oil soaps & lotions. After showering upon check-in (the other place had a non-working shower/bathtub!) they offered us a glass of white wine from their winery.

Later in the day we sat on the balcony to relax. Our view was of the Tuscan countryside with olive trees and vineyards. Just below we could see the small town of Gaiole. The next morning, I went for a swim in the heated pool which was perfect. Later in the day, we visited the winery along with their unique wine cellar (very James Bond like).

Everyone in this small winery is focused on creating a great experience and we were not disappointed. An added plus, is that the location is great - from this point you can tour the Chianti region and visit other small towns and wineries. The walk downtown is short (but you must walk up the hill!) and Bianchi Cafe serves terrific food at a very reasonable price.

Next time we visit, we will definitely stay here!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

My husband and I were staying in Gaiole in Chianti and wanted to go to a local winery for a tasting and tour. We were recommended by our hotel to come to Capannelle. What a great experience it was! We were greeted warmly by Valentina, who gave us a private tour of the winery. We then did a tasting upstairs and were given a plate of amazing cheese and crackers along with the best wine we tasted in the Chianti region. The whole experience lasted over an hour and a half. We did not feel rushed and Valentina went out of her way to make us feel at home. If you are going into the Chianti region and pass through Gaiole in Chianti, make sure to stop here for a tasting.

this is one of the most unique places i have been to,
coming back to capannelle is like coming home to your italian family.
every member of the staff is like a sister, aunt, brother or old friend.
capannelle is an experience on its own..
and i even haven't started to talk about their wine...
