World-class wines, olive oils, and vinegar have long been produced in this medieval hamlet, situated north of Radda in Chianti. Indeed, fine wine has been produced from the vineyards that flank Volpaia for many centuries; the Castello di Volpaia was constructed in the 10th century, perched high on a ridge that forms part of a series of hills that run toward Radda. The Castello, together with the vines, historic houses, olive groves, and cypresses, constitutes the ultimate Tuscan cliché – a view that every tourist expects to see during their trip through Chianti Classico. In this regard, Volpaia never disappoints. Whether you seek fine wine, superlative gastronomy, historical treasures, or simply a spectacular vista, Volpaia will cater to your every desire.
