Wine Expo 2014 in Greve in Chianti - Tuscany

Wine Expo 2014 in Greve in Chianti - Tuscany

Today 11th September 2014 the Mayors of the 8 Municipalieties of Chianti Classico ( Greve in Chianti, Radda in Chianti, Castellina in Chianti, Gaiole in Chianti, Barberino Val d’Elsa, San Casciano Val di Pesa, Tavarnelle Val di Pesa, Castelnuovo Berardenga)  officially opened the Wine Expo 2014 in the beautiful square of Greve in Chianti.

Amongst the beautiful things to do in Tuscany, what I always recommend to my guests staying at Ancora del Chianti B&B is paying a visit to the wine farm and meet the wine makers personally. So coming to Greve in Chianti for the Wine Expo in Greve in Chianti is a must that you cannot miss! Take a look in the map of Tuscany and you will discover that Greve in Chianti is right in the middle of Tuscany between Florence and Siena.

Even if you are spending your Tuscany holidays in a hotel in Florence, or in a bed and breakfast in Siena, spending lazy days in agriturismo in the South of Tuscany or touring on your Italy vacations, after day tour in Siena, San Gimignano Pisa and Lucca, trips to Cortona, Cinque Terre, Florence tours with museums, monument and shopping, take some time for yourself and enjoy the most amazing wine tasting with the most young, passionate (…and beautiful !) wine producers of Chianti.

Here the review in Italian left by Laura and Simone, Italy, our guests at Ancora del Chianti B&B in May 2014:

“Io non ho mai scritto recensioni sulle varie esperienze che ho avuto , ma stavolta devo assolutamente scrivere che in quel posto, tra quegli ulivi e viti e in mezzo a tutte quei fiori e i loro profumi ho lasciato il cuore! Bellissimo semplicemente bellissimo poi Laura,la padrona di casa, e’ fantastica, ti sa accogliere e coccolare durante tutta la vacanza in modo unico e sempre con un sorriso sul viso e tantissimi consigli utili per vivere al meglio la tua vacanza in quel territorio, mi ha stupito anche il modo in cui sa Intrattenere i clienti stranieri dialogando con loro molto spontaneamente! Vi dico solo che andar via e’ stata dura..si stava veramente troppo bene, in tutto e per tutto! Ne approfitto per mandargli un abbraccio grande da noi..Simone e Laura e speriamo di tornare presto!”

Grazie Simone e Laura per le vostre parole che trasmettono tutto il vostro entusiasmo per i giorni trascorsi all’ Ancora del Chianti. Sono felice che il nostro sogno sia diventato anche il vostro: un ambiente curato circondato da vigne e olivi dove i fiori del giardino deliziano tutti con i loro colori e i loro profumi e dove l’ambiente invita al “dolce far niente”. Ricordo quando siete arrivati con la lista delle visite da fare e poi….. avete preferito prima fare una passeggiata tra le vigne e poi rilassarvi sulle amache in giardino a guardare le nuvole bianche passare veloci incrociando le traiettorie degli uccelli in volo. Voi siete rimasti stupiti e soddisfatti di questo improvviso cambio di programma e noi contenti che tutto ciò sia potuto accadere a casa nostra! Vi aspetto presto. Un abbraccio, Laura

“Paradise”: First Trip Advisor Review in 2014!

Just only 2 weeks after 2014 re-opening we are glad to receive the First Trip Advisor Review for 2014 about Ancora del Chianti B&B from Marni, Australia:

“Paradise”
“The setting of this place is absolutely amazing. Nestled on a hilltop, the views are breathtaking in every direction. The room was cute and comfortable, with everything we needed (including an excellent heater!), but what made our stay completely memorable was host Laura’s incredible hospitality. She made us feel like family and I did not want to leave! Her obvious passion for hospitality shone through in everything – a lovely welcome note, the generous and delicious breakfast spread, lively and enthusiastic conversation and suggestions of things to do in the area. Laura and Filippo have built together and incredible home and away from home and I can’t recommend it enough!”

Thank you Marni, we are happy you enjoyed your stay at Ancora del Chianti B&B so much! We also enjoyed your company and lovely talks in the morning. Hope to meet you soon again!

The picture has an apparent the simple subject: the olive trees, symbol of peace and hard work through generations, weave together with powerful sun rays suggest the idea of a dynamic cosmic harmony.
This delicate yet strong image recalls the peace and the magic of every morning at Ancora del Chianti. The silence of the rising sun over the vineyard, the olive grove and the garden invites to deeply breathe and dive in the energy for the new day to come.
