We are still talking about our last trip to Chianti.
The vineyards were postcard perfect in gold and red, and the olives were ripening in the trees. We loved the crisp days and cool evenings, the sights and sounds of grape harvest, the art of wine-making, and sharing feasts around tables where families have been gathering for centuries.
We stayed in San Fedele, a 1000 year-old monastery rich with peace and a sense of history. It was a magical experience at the peak of the season, in the heart of the region, but far enough off the beaten track to be away from the crowds.
