Few areas possess the evocative charm of Chianti’s natural landscape, which is made up of a thousand shades, colors and scents combined with rural architecture, which preserves its origins.

Green hills outlined with kilometers of vineyards and olive groves, dense chestnut and oak forests, small villages enclosed by thick medieval walls, ancient parish churches, castles, fortresses and farmhouses: all this is combined with the area’s traditions, making it one of the most famous regions in the world.

Chianti is a land of holidays and tourism famous throughout the world for its production of Chianti red wine.

As far back as the mid-16th century, the wine produced in its vineyards was exported to England, leading to Chianti’s golden age: noble farms and villas were built in this period, where landowners came to spend the summer in the countryside.

This area, which is full of vineyards neatly arranged on its gentle hills, covers about 700 square kilometers between the provinces of Florence and Siena.

Chianti includes the medieval villages of Greve, Gaiole, Radda and Castellina , where, while walking through the streets of the town and enjoying its stunning views, you can delight your palate by tasting excellent wine paired with Tuscan culinary art.
