Fattoria di Vegi nestles in the middle of Chianti's picturesque hillside, 7 km outside Castellina in Chianti. The farm enjoys a perfect hilltop setting surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and green woodland. The owner's family has managed the farm since 1842, but the building is much older.
The farm covers 108 hectares, 58 of which are cultivated with grapes, olive trees and cereal. The farm produces god red wines, the traditional Tuscan vinsanto, an excellent extra virgin olive oil and grappa from Chianti Classico.
Accommodation is provided in the imposing and well restored villa and also in the nearby house once occupied by the farm manager. There is a fine swimming pool by the house with views over the vineyards covering the hills nearby. This is really far from anywhere, in the middle of the loveliest Tuscan countryside, but be prepared - the road leading to the farm demands sedate driving and is not suitable for sports cars with low lying bodywork. It is charming but exceedingly rustic!
