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!
