The annual Greve Wine Festival held on the piazza is held in early September and features over 40 booths of local vineyards selling their wares. You can buy a tasting pass for 10 Euro that gives you 7 tastings of your choice among the booths (minimum of 7 because some representatives don't bother to punch your card). We met many wonderful representatives there who made it possible for direct purchasing from the vineyard (including shipping) without a distributor. Several of the reps we talked to advised us that most of their harvest is consumed in Europe and China, with distributors on the US East Coast getting very little in comparison. As a result, us Midwesterners have very little chance.
We ordered some bottles of different vintages and Chianti products and split cases with couples who were with us. It was a great afternoon of regional wine education, tasting and commerce.
If you're heading to heading to Tuscany region in early September, be sure to put Greve and the festival as a priority on your list of "must do's"

We stayed just on the outskirts of Greve, and we loved everything about the town. We were able to find everything that we were looking for and the tourist office was very helpful in terms of recommending wine tours for our family. Great grocery store and everything is walkable. I will definitely stay in Greve again on my next trip to Italy.

Visited during Greve-in-Chianti wine festival. Numerous small shops with locally made goods & products. Lots of flowers, with church at far end of piazza. Loverly way to spend an hour or two.

Good restaurants, shops and tourist information office are in this Piazza. We love to stay in Greve as a base for so many wine tasting opportunities in the part of Chianti!

The central square of Greve is very nice for a brief stroll and a look in the (expensive) touristy shops. Local cars park in the central bit of the square which isn’t so nice. Nevertheless, it’s still a very cute square in a cute town.

Don't miss the Saturday morning market on the Piazza. Shop with the locals and taste the local foods.

Chianti region is nice for driving in narrow roads with beatiful view but the town Greve in Chianti has nothing special. This square is similar to the other many squares in Italy. If you have limited time in Toscana region, do not waste time in this little town and see other interesting places.

What an inviting plaza!! Markets are held in the square several days a week - on Sat., vendors of all types fill the square - there are food vendors w/a host of traditional Italian & Tuscan dishes - fresh fish, stalls w/beautiful home-grown vegetables, olives - clothing - hats & shoes - leather goods - ceramics - it is a fun experience - there are several restaurants & a variety of shops that ring the plaza - of course, there are several wonderful coffee shops - truly a pleasant place to spend a few hours.
