An unforgettable evening exploring the world of Tuscan wine and cuisine by candlelight in a vineyard in the heart of Tuscany and Chianti Classico – the oldest and considered the most genuine wine-producing area in the Chianti region – right between the Sienese towns of Castellina and Radda in Chianti.

The experience begins with a glass of wine on the terrace overlooking the vineyards with a selection of small bites, followed by a 3-course dinner served with a tasting flight of 3 red wines in the vineyard.

You can reach the resort by car and is about 40 minutes drive  from Florence downtown, in the area of Castellina
