Interesting Stop on our Tuscan Tour.

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.

I went to this Castello di Volpai today with my Italian friends as we love wine tasting a lot. We enjoyed the Castello a lot as they showed how they produce their wines. As we finished the tour we sat down inside a beautiful like a small library with all the wines they produced from the last 4 decades or... More

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

I read about this perfect wisp of a hamlet cum village and it was better than anticipated. We started at Bar Ucci with two cappuccino and a delicious medieval fruit and nut cake just before the no frills Castello di Volpaia enoteca next door opened midmorning, All three of these establishments (the only ones in town outside of a handful...

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

This little town/village is one of the most romantic places I've ever seen even on TV. :))) It is as if you have taken it our from the Medeval times' movie or something. It must be visited. And by the way, its restaurants/osterias are worth it to be visited. ;)
