If you have ever been to Tuscany (and maybe even if you haven’t), you have probably heard of the famed “Chianti Classico Road.” A route that begins in the outskirts of Florence and ends in Siena, it takes you through the twelve towns that make up the Chianti Classico wine region. Marked with all the classic beauty of the region, the road winds through what seems an endless landscape of gentle slopes, tall cypress trees and of course, rows upon rows of vines.
Viticcio Winery is located at the heart of the Chianti Classico Road. Greve in Chianti, the town we call home, is the beating centre of the entire chianti region. A long and rich history, reaching back before the time of the Etruscans, Greve in Chianti has long been a principal town due to it being perched along the banks of the Greve River.
This is evidenced by the stunning 11th century Franciscan Abbey of Passignano that still stands in the centre of Greve’s terra vecchia (old town). Also witness to this incredible, long story of Greve is the triangular main piazza near the abbey. It is still home to a market that has been supplying locals for centuries.
While the Road can be easily completed in one day, we feel that such a quick drive-through doesn’t give you the chance to truly enjoy the beauty of this corner of the world. So we have a proposition for you: split the road in two and spend a few nights with us in our agriturismo.
This not only gives you the chance to wind down and relax in the stunning Tuscan wine region, but also learn more about the infamous Chianti Classico. During your stay take advantage of our tours and tastings. Three different tours for those who only want to drink a little and those who want to learn a lot. For the ultimate Chianti Classico Road experience, take part of our Wine Blending tour which allows you to get involved in the actual winemaking and lend your own wine to take home. Thats a souvenir to remember!
Starting in Sant’Andrea in Percussina you can make your way slowly to Viticcio Winery. Greve in Chianti is the fifth town on the route, but easily the largest and so is the perfect resting place for a few days, or even a week!
But staying in town means you will miss out on the unique experience of the Tuscan countryside. Instead, take in the natural wonders in the comfort of an intimate family atmosphere. Our agriturismo is a beautifully re-done traditional Tuscan farmhouse, equipped with all the modern luxuries and welcomes guests all through the year. Although, the saltwater pool may be closed in the winter. With apartments capable of sleeping up to ten guests, it can accommodate any traveler of the Chianti Classico Road.
