Tuscany Sights

Volpaia

Updated 12/04/2013

Fodor's Review

This tiny town, with a population of roughly 50, is perched on a hill 10 km (6 mi) north of Radda. During the wars between Florence and Siena it served as a key castle and military outpost, but lost its importance when the Florentines defeated Siena in 1555. Approximately three-quarters of the town are now given over to the production of wine and olive oil.

Castello di Volpaia. At this small enoteca on Piazza della Cisterna you can sample and purchase the

fine wines, olive oil, and flavored vinegars made by Castello di Volpaia. Booked in advance, tours in English of the winery and olive press are also available. Piazza della Cisterna 1. www.volpaia.it.
