Hidden gem in Radda in Chianti

Volpaia is a very characteristic medieval village which is very close to Radda in Chianti and should not be missed.

It was a little tricky driving there (in my opinion) but was so happy that we stopped by this quaint LITTLE village (or Hamlet I guess is the proper term) up on the hill. The views all around are magnificent. Everywhere you look you are in awe of beauty. We stopped into the Winery there and joined tour that was... More

This is a beautiful town. The tour includes a walk around the town a discussion about the town tours of the wine and olive oil processing areas, and the wine cellar. The tour ends with a wine tasting. One white, three red, all great.

A small but pleasant hill town in Chianti. Wine tasting available, and a good cafe to sit at and people watch. Very friendly people.

Lovingly restored borgo (little village) high in the hills of Chianti Classico. The views are magnificent. Wonderful walking trails in the surrounding area. A gem not to be missed.

This small village (hamlet?) in the Chianti region of Tuscany is charming and will fulfill your expectations, nestled in the rolling hills of wine country. The village is an oasis from the hustle and noise of the larger cities. The village is absolutely beautiful and everyone here greeted us with a smile and warm hello. We had a large 9... More

You absolutely have to stop and see the view from up there. You should also try the wine tasting and the olive oil.

We rented a 1,000 year old farmhouse from the company/family that own and run the Volpaia estate. The house was great, with a pool, and a cool view of the nearby hilltop Radda en Chianti. Volpaia itself is a teeny tiny village owned by the family and features ancient homes, 2 chapels, a winery shop, and great restaurants. The views... More
