This was a great place to stay, close to Greve with good shops and restaurants and half way between Siena and Florence. Our host, Vincenzo, was very friendly and helpful and treated us to a very informative wine tour on our last day.

About the neighbourhood
In the heart of the Chianti Classico area you find the magnificent Villa Calcinaia, untouched beauty, propriety of the Capponi family since 1524, one of the most important noble florentine families dating back to the 13th century. Villa Calcinaia is still home of the Capponi Family and the wine pruducing can be traced back in the family archives to the early 17th century. The visit to Villa Calcinaia Cellars will make you experience centuries of history combined to the modern wine producing techniques based on decades of family knowledge. The tour of the estate includes a visit to the park and gardens of the Villa, the wine producing area and the aging cellars. A special treat is the visit of the Vinsantaia, where the grapes dry for the Vin Santo, a unique tuscan experience.
