I think that who is dreaming to start a journey in the Chianti knows what it can offer- hills looking like a perfect painting with vineyards, olive groves, farms cypress trees and castles.

We will learn the secrets of the nectar that Baron Ricasoli called Chianti.
The towns Castellina, Radda, Gaiole and Castelnuovo Berardenga were part of the Medieval League of the Chianti and each one of them tells you its history and traditions.
Interesting artisans workshops, gastronomical products and art and archeology museums go back to our origins. The Etruscan civilization.
Landscape and culture, a charming land.
San Galgano Abbey
One of the most fascinating abbey near Siena is the Abbey of San Galgano, a local saint, once a soldier who chose to stop using his weapons and who decided to be a follower of the Lord. Still today the Sword in the Stone is one of the symbols of this valley where the abundant nature of the Farma river is the protagonist together with the romanesque monuments just like the Abbey of Saint Mustiola in Torri, the Church of Ponte allo Spino, the Etruscan Museum of Murlo, the noble family villas just like Cetinale and Celsa.
During our tour we will visit farms with the cinta senese porks, typical of Siena and the delicious goat cheeses produced by biodinamic farms.
