Relais Vignale History
Relais Vignale is located in the Chianti Classico area, an hour's drive from Florence and Siena and a short walk from the center of Radda. The building is the result of an accurate work of recovery of a farm of 1700 of which we can find the first historical hints in the documents of the Grand Duke Peter of Lorraine in which it refers to the then owners Falconi as wine merchants. Ai Falconi took over the Pianigiani family who increased their wine production: in 1924 Baldassare Pianegiani signed the consortium for the defense of the Chianti Classico within Fattoria Vignale. Documents kept with care within the Vignale archives, testifying to a centuries-old tradition as it is also home to the Chiantigiani Historical Studies Center.
The structure has been restructured respecting the original architectures guaranteeing the standards of a 4-star hotel. The rustic yet elegant rooms are individually furnished and equipped with air conditioning and satellite TV. Some are located in the annex. In the rooms there are numerous period furniture, as well as attracting attention to the frescoed ceilings or the impressive chimneys. The common areas include a lounge bar, a TV room, a library and a free internet point located in the lobby.
The hotel's restaurant, La Terrazza, owes its name to the magnificent covered panoramic terrace overlooking the Chianti hills; in the most gloomy days you can eat in the old cellars of the farm, also finely restored environments. The cuisine is that of the ancient flavors of Chianti, like the unfailing grilled meat and the typical dishes of the area.
Relais Vignale is also an ideal venue for hosting meetings, conferences, meetings, banquets and weddings, with the staff ready to take care of catering and any other need, leaving guests free to enjoy a quiet and relaxing day in the beautiful Tuscan countryside.
