Our first stop is Greve in Chianti which, along with Radda, Gaiole and Castellina is part of one of the oldest wine making areas. Wines made here can be recognised by the 'Gallo Nero' (black cockerel) on the labels.
Visitors should visit the ancient piazza del Mercato, home to the Palazzo Comunale (town hall) and Santa Croce church.
Of course, there are also many small traditional groceries selling typical local food and wines. One famous example is Macelleria Falorni (a butcher's) and the Museo del Vino (wine museum).
A trip to the ancient and wonderfully pretty town of Montefioralle is also a must.
