Between wineries and vineyards


When one says Chianti, inevitably and immediately one thinks of Chianti Classico wine. 

That's why, if you love nature and want to immerse yourself in the Tuscan countryside, the Chianti Classico vineyards are the perfect place to surprise your guests with an open-air ceremony!

There are numerous farms to choose from for a wedding among the rows of vines. An ideal location especially in summer and autumn, surrounded by vines and bunches of Sangiovese grapes.

If, on the other hand, you prefer an indoor location, you can choose to set your wedding inside historic cellars, enveloped by the smell of fermenting wine.
Your guests will certainly also enjoy tasting the local labels.

And there will be no lack of choice.

Castles, parishes and historic residences

Chianti is a land of ancient castles, parish churches and abbeys. From the castle of Giovanni da Verrazzano, who discovered Hudson's Bay, to the medieval castle of Palagio, scene of battles between the Florentines and Sienese, to the castle of Vicchiomaggio, where director Kenneth Brannagh set the film 'Much ado about nothing', in Greve in Chianti.

Many of these places are now farms or accommodation facilities, ideal for hosting fairytale weddings.

There is no shortage of historic residences, such as the house of Niccolò Machiavelli, in Sant'Andrea in Percussina, in San Casciano Val di Pesa, where the writer composed 'The Prince', or historic villas, such as the splendid Villa Chigi Saracini in Castelnuovo Berardenga. And finally, why not choose to get married in ancient and historical abbeys, such as the Abbey of Passignano, or in the splendid Certosa di Pontignano.

If you want to organize a ceremony in grand style, with an old-time atmosphere, you will be spoiled for choice.

Medieval villages and palaces

Vineyards, castles but also ancient medieval villages characterize the Chianti Classico.
And it is precisely among these ancient streets and palaces that you can choose to set your wedding.

In Castellina in Chianti, for example, you can get married in the splendid Sala del Capitano inside the medieval Rocca, which dominates the village and the surrounding hills. In Barberino Tavarnelle, on the other hand, you can choose between the evocative Palazzo Malaspina, in the heart of the village of San Donato in Poggio, one of the most beautiful in Italy, or the delightful chapel of Semifonte, where the ancient rival city of Florence, mentioned by Dante in the Divine Comedy, once stood.

In Radda in Chianti, instead, it is possible to get married in the Sala del Podestà or under the Loggiato in front of the entrance to the Palazzo Comunale, breathing in centuries of history. Finally, in San Casciano Val di Pesa you can even get married inside the suggestive Niccolini Theater.

The choice is yours!
