About the Location
Castelnuovo Berardenga is a town and comune that settles among the Chianti vineyards just east of Siena.

The main town is a 16th-century settlement dressed in sunset shades. Expect amber hotels, blush-pink houses and a golden church, all topped off with typically Tuscan terracotta roofs. The restaurants are Tuscan down to their bones, too. Homely trattorie, a pizzeria-topped square and wine bars pouring local Chianti are all for the taking.

Castelnuovo Berardenga marks the very southern edge of the Chianti region. From here, the award-winning wineries of Montepulciano and Arrezzo are also in easy driving distance. Siena – a medieval work of art – is just a half-hour drive over the horizon, too. Prefer two wheels? The restful rural tracks leading out of Castelnuovo Berardenga are made for cycling. Hire a bike and trace the backroads to the ancient neighbouring hamlet of Pacina.
