The Circolino of Montefioralle

Montefioralle is a small village located in the Tuscan countryside, a few kilometers from the town of Greve in Chianti, famous for its production of fine wines.

The village of Montefioralle has ancient origins and dates back at least to medieval times, as evidenced by its walls and stone houses. The historic center of the village is characterized by narrow winding streets, stone houses and numerous historic buildings, including the Church of Santa Maria in Mon-tefioralle.

The village also offers a splendid panoramic view of the surrounding Tuscan countryside and the Arno Valley. In addition, Montefioralle is an ideal starting point for hiking or cycling in the surrounding vineyards and hills, or for visiting other historical and cultural sites in the area.

Finally, Montefioralle also hosts several cultural and gastronomic events throughout the year, including the Wine Fair in September, which is an opportunity to taste local wines and discover the gastronomic traditions of the area.

Every year the village hosts the Medieval Festival of Montefioralle, an event that takes place in May and that proposes the traditions, customs and habits of the Middle Ages. During the festival, the streets of the village come alive with jugglers, musicians, street artists and flag-wavers, creating a magical and evocative atmosphere.

Our family has always been very close to Montefioralle: together with our friends from Castellani (this is the name for the village inhabitants) our grandparents and parents organised trips throughout Tus-cany and around Italy. Father Luciano and Mamma Fausta have managed for years the Circolino Mon-tefioralle, a place of sociality and fundamental exchange for the country.

The sign of the Circolino, all in wood, was handmade by Luciano. It still stands proudly above the door, welcoming all the old and new patrons and friends.

What Montefioralle offers its visitors: beauty, tranquility, excellent wine and oil, hospitality in one of the most beautiful countryside in the world. And of course, good food, many events and a great wel-come in true Chianti style.

We have been here for generations and we are always happy to meet you, wherever you come from in the world!
