Castello Di Volpaia- Winery with Small Italian Hamlet

Volpaia is a small Italian hamlet that belongs mostly to the Castello Di Volpaia winery and is located 613 meters above sea level. The village was built in 1172, and today the old buildings of the hamlet still resemble those from ancient times despite being filled with modern wine-making equipment inside. The village has a total population of 38 people who live there throughout the year.

Different Wine labels

The wines produced at Castello Di Volpaia include Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Mammolo, Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Trebbiano and Malvasia.

The red wines produced at the winery have been voted the highest scoring red wines from an Italian family.

The family is also dedicated to preserving the historical village and unique terroir of the area which in 2018 was named the number 3 spot on the Wine Spectator’s list.

Theater for tourists

Today, as in the eleventh century, the village is intimately involved in wine and olive oil production. This is unavoidable as the fermentation room and wine cellars, the vinsantaia and bottling, and the mill orciaia are all housed in the buildings of the hamlet within the basements, the churches, and the halls, all joined together by a spectacular underground wine duct. Volpaia is thus not a mere “theater for tourists”, but the center of complex rural activities which are directly or indirectly linked to all the inhabitants of the village.

The winery produces only certified organic wine and olive oil which have all been acclaimed by the international media and wine experts.
