Having never been to the Chianti region before, I didn't realize that Griole in Chianti was a bit removed from the vineyards. The La Fonda was in the town square, which sounds lovely, and maybe sometimes is, but when we were there (May), it was dead. Plus it was exhausting to lug our luggage from a parking lot outside the square and up the steps to the front door. Luckily our room was on the first floor. Breakfast was average.

After nearly two weeks touring Tuscany including the Palio de Siena we were ready for a few quiet nights in the country side of the Chianti region. This hotel was a great escape from the busy streets of Siena, and the staff helped make the stay even more memorable. Casa al Vento has a lot to offer for a small owner operated vineyard. There is a restaurant on site with a good breakfast, and there is a nice dinner menu offering regional selections for four courses. The staff is international, extremely helpful and went out of their way to accommodate our wishes during our stay. We took the cooking class with Chef Antonio, and front desk manager spent three hours with us to provide translation services so we could have the full benefit of the instructional class. The Chianti Classico wines produced by Casa al Vento were a great compliment to the meals we enjoyed during our stay. The FOHO reserve is recommended.
Our room was a rustic two room apartment suite that was appointed in period correct furniture. There are several small courtyards and gardens around the property to escape to, and the pool offered a beautiful view over the valley and rolling hills planted with Sangiovese grapes and olive trees. There is a small gift shop on site that offers wine, olive oil, food, and beauty products. There is also an onsite spa, but we did not use their services.
This is a nice place to stay in the Gaiole in Chianti region.

I was able to travel easily around Chianti and the surrounding area (San Gimigiano, Arezzo, Siena) using the hotel as my base, which allowed me to stay in the hotel for 3 days. Chianti was my favourite location in Tuscany and being able to stay in one place while exploring the area was a bonus.

An amazing place! We found peace and quiet, it was the perfect place to regroup after the hustle and bustle of Rome and Venice. We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom apartments, and it was the perfect size for our family of four. Our two boys loved the idea of staying at a castle with a pool and my husband and I loved the gourmet meals and terrific wine! The scenery/background was breathtaking.
