Where to eat.
Not all of the wineries in Chianti include restaurants, but those that do have them offer visitors a wide range of delicious local dishes and specialty products complete with wine pairing. Whether you opt for a restaurant in one of the villages or at a cellar door, you won’t be disappointed. Italians, and Tuscans in particular, take their food seriously and prepare it joyously, so expect everything from cold plates of cheese, prosciutto, olive oil and crostini to substantial dishes of handmade pappardelle with hare or wild boar ragu and, of course, the famous Flintstonesized bistecca alla Fiorentina.
