“Great food and scenery”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

The buildings surrounding the winery were beautiful and authentic Italy. After a wine tasting and tour, we had lunch outside at La Bottega. I was in Italy for 10 days and this was probably the best meal I had!

“Beautiful little village”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

Great winery and cellar. There are a few good restaurants and cafe on the main square.
The village was a former fort on a hilltop so it over looks the Tuscan hills.

“Great town unspoilt by a lot of tourists”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

This seems to be off the usual tourist tracks which is a nice relief when it comes to a lot of Tuscan towns. If you are a wine collector check out the local grocery store. There are some older vintages as very reasonable prices, cheaper than you find at the actual wineries.

“Quint Tuscany Town”
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.
