Gaiole in Chianti

The Perfect Blend of Flavour, Scenery & History

The town of Gaiole in Chianti is another important city within the Chianti Classico region, where the main attractions include the delicious flavours between wine and olive oil. However one could easily say that the real attractions of Gaiole, beyond its Chianti Classico wine, are its surroundings which include beautiful castles and parish churches.

Set to the east of Radda, Gaiole offers glimpse at the complex power struggles that marked this land for 100's of years, from the Ricasoli family to the Medici family, from the Guelfs to the Ghibilines and between Florence and Siena.  These very conflicts were the stimulus for the fortified towns, towering castles and continuous devastation that marks so many destroyed towers and villas.  A spectacular base for your holiday travel farmhouse accommodation or vacation villa rentals.

But from all this chaos, the tradition of Chianti Classico wine was born! Gaiole vants the largest winery in the Chianti Classico area: Brolio Castle, where Baron Bettino Ricasoli invented the Chianti formula in 1872. Great wines that vary with the soil, sun and rain.  Visit the many vineyards in Chianti, tasting your way through the stunning antique wine cellars and exquisite aromas of a wine which strictly follows the dictates of Chianti Classico and the San Giovesse grape.
