“Quint Tuscany Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

Volpaia is a bit off beat, but the drive from Rada to Volpaia is really delightful. The road is less traveled so you don't have to fight for traffic, while enjoying the country view. The town is small and simple, but that's the beauty of it. Without a lot of your usual busload of tourists, you can actually enjoy the small town living atmosphere. A nice small church, a shop, a restaurant, are the 'dominant' features of the town 'plaza'. Easy parking right outside the town. Walk around the narrow streets and enjoy the quietness. It is nice some of the towns in Tuscany have not been overwhelmed by popular tourism.

“love, love, love Volpaia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

It's our favorite hill town...and with Radda close by...we love it. Our cooking class with Jo was first class.She is amazing! Food fabulous! The tour of the winery is exceptional. You get that "local" feel. And don't miss dinner at La Bottega.

Love, love, loved this place! Be sure to visit for lunch and try the truffle pasta. The view, service and wine was out of this world.

“Bottega di Volpaia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

After settling into the hilltop restaurant terrace with a view you can only get in Tuscany, we were taken aback by the great service and excellent food. We had to go back a second time and it was still just as good. It is a definite must if you are in Tuscany (near Radda in Chianti).

“We walked to Volpia from nearby Radda”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

It took about an hour and a half to walk the relatively short distance from our vacation digs in Radda to the hiltop hamlet of Volpia. Boy, was it worth it! There's not much in Volpia that isn't in other area towns, but the serenity and unspoiled beauty was impressive. We got wine and cheese and used the facilities at the (only) small bar located in the town's center. There is also a very nice restaurant nearby, but we were unable to visit it due to our schedule.

I'd definitely return to Volpia and would recommend a visit to everybody.
