“The epitomy of calm and perfection”

La Vineria di Vertine
Cuisines: Italian, Mediterranean, Cafe
Restaurant details
Reviewed 16 June 2017

Vertine is a hamlet, hidden away above Gaoile, it's our last day here and even though we are only 2kms we didn't even realise it existed.

The surrounding and the village itself are sumptuous, far removed from the tourism of the major villages. It is untouched by modernity, one of the last havens of peace..

The hamlet only takes 10 minutes, if walking slowly, to visit, but it is 10 minutes of calm and peace.

We had a quick drink at the bar, and the girl was lovely to us.. You might need to know a word or two in Italian but I am sure that whoever visits this wonderful little hamlet will find his way...

If you pass through Gaoile, make the short detour to Vertine and have a quick drink, it's definitely worthwhile...

We stumbled upon Vertine while driving around, looking for another place. This turned out to be a great stop. The village is quite and beautiful, and La Vineria is the perfect compliment: a one-man bar operation, with nice outdoor seating, great wines by the glass, and food that's better than it needs to be given the great setting. Highly recommended.

This tiny place is so rustic italian as it gets. A delicate one man bar/cafe on top of Tuscanys rolling hillsides. Nothing but vineyards and olivetrees for as long as you Can see. A wonderful little hamlet in the middle of beautiful Chianti Classico. The menu is simple but delicate. Salads and cold cuts and wonderful cheeses. Just what you expect. Service is polite and friendly. You'll never forget this hillside place and your lunch. And he serves excellent local wine as well. We will Go there next time around.

Vertine is one of those villages that hides away in the Chianti countryside, easily missed unless someone recommends a visit. And whilst La Vineria is the only bar in the village, it doesn't take advantage of that fact. The locals seem to love it (the day we visited was a bank holiday, and the bar was lively with locals having a splendid time). A pleasant place to while away the hours, or have a quick cooling drink - take your pick.

Nice service. The guy behind the counter was attentive and friendly. We just got a couple of glasses of chianti and a plate of pecorino, but both were great. The cheese came with tuna stuffed tomatoes and it was slightly spicey. Wonderful!
The wine was also good, produced down the road and affordable. Nice location as well. Stop by if you are in Chianti.
