WE love coming up here and just have a relaxing lunch and a walk around the town it is something that is a little different and not so spoilt by tourists.

Volpaia is one of the gems of the Chianti region of Tuscany. It is always busy with visitors, especially at lunchtime, and parking is often frustrating. However it is well worth the effort of finding your way there. The open air restaurant in the square has a very good menu at reasonable prices and has good service.

Visited for few hours as a day trip from our hotel in Radda. Charming old town with the specific stone houses and cobbled streets. They make wine right there in Volpaia which you can taste and buy on the spot.

Did not participate for the tour but bought a couple of estate bottles and enjoyed a nice lunch (with wine of course) in the cafe. The place is worth visiting even without wine related intentions.

Just walk around and be amazed of the antique houses that are turned into wineries. You look through an ancient door and see the stainless steel barrels, quite a contrast!

Great place to stop and experience some true Italian wine tasting. For ten euro's you get a tour of the whole winery, from where the grapes are collected, to the barrels and vats. Family run staff are lovely who showed us around and were extremely knowledgeable (as you would expect) about their wines. You get to taste some of the... More

Already the views and the road up there are good enough reasons to visit this place. Village is very atmospheric and beautiful. Winery tour and tasting was average (15 €/person). For experienced winery visitor tour didn't include anything special about wine. Tour was more about the place.

Volpaia is a very characteristic medieval village which is very close to Radda in Chianti and should not be missed.
