This little geographical region is famous for being picturesque and producing the wonderful Chianti wine. There are many small towns in this region, among them is Castellina, Gaiole, Radda and our town Greve in Chianti. These towns are also known for their farms (farmhouses) where people can go directly to buy wine. In the same valley as Greve in Chianti are some typical Tuscan historical villages such as Montefioralle and Panzano, all of which are really beautiful.
Life in the Chianti region is still modulated by the rhythms of the land and of nature, which in daily life results in picking and harvesting, tasting, fairs, festivals and much more. Planning ahead for your holidays in "Chiantishire" bearing in mind these important events may make the difference between a pleasant holiday and an unforgettable one.
