The Chianti wine village of Volpaia in Tuscany

Volpaia is a picturesque fortified village in the Chianti Classico wine zone. Walled hamlets and small villages are typically referred to as castelli in Tuscany, the same term being used for castles in the more traditional sense. The entire village of Volpaia is thus often correctly referred to as the Castello di Volpaia, although that is actually the registered name of the winery located there. The winery, in fact, owns much of Volpaia. The village is nevertheless well worth a visit for a stroll through its quiet lanes and perhaps a tranquil lunch. Volpaia has three good restaurants and offers beautiful views in all directions.
