We absolutely loved our one night stay in this really truly beautiful magical hamlet. It has a very special feel to it and for us we felt like we'd found a bit of a a 'hidden gem' on the Tuscan wine trail. Especially after the day visitors left in the evening - definitely a place that is worth staying over.... More

Went to Volpaia partly for the novelty and partly for he wine tasting. Tour was great. Wines were nice, but did not top our list for the week.

Karin was a fabulous guide, spoke in great depth about the history of the borgo and the wine making there. She was patient and friendly, never rushed us, very gracious at the tasting. Fascinating and beautiful place to visit and the wine is extremely high quality.

Our hostess was incredible; she was patient and funny and helped explained the few complicated processes. She dined with us and we met her husband; by the end we felt welcomed and part of the family. The wine tour was great with Alicia and her English was excellent. We would recommend to everyone as it was a great way to... More

What a divine village (very dedicated to wine and food)!! We took a fabulous cooking class from Giovannella Stianti at the Castello's cooking school, and had so much fun with her...she is a great teacher & delightful person, our food was great, the free flowing Chianti Riserva was perfect, and the setting couldn't be better. I only wish we'd had... More

After spending a night in this lovely tiny medieval hamlet we took this tour. Castle and village are very well restored by the owner, nice story. That's just it... The guide showed a couple of rooms with barrels, gave some information but showed no passion for the wine or winemaking process. Tasting was good with three wines, olive oil, bread... More

After a trip into Rhadda in Chianti we wanted to try some wine tasting. We spoke to the advisor at the information office who gave us a few options. We decided on Volpaia as the advisor mentioned it was a gorgeous medieval town on top of a hill. Wow, we were not dissapointed. The surrounding area was stunning. Rolling hills... More
