Chianti Classico was the first region in the world to be demarcated in 1716. Over the last three centuries numerous battles for the prized land between Florence and Siena have taken place. Thankfully, the one thing that continues to survive and thrive are the vineyards. The rolling hills, with their famous albarese and galestro soil, are a sanctuary for vines and olive trees. Here both grand estates and small farms co-exist creating a beautiful tapestry of agricultural splendour. Today we’ll visit two estates, including having lunch at one of them before we settle into our new villa outside of the town of San Gimignano. After a long day, tonight’s dinner will be simple.
