Even closer to home are Chianti's five regional towns, Gaiole in Chianti, Castellina in Chianti, Radda in Chianti, Panzano, Greve in Chianti.
The nearest village is San Regolo, which is a tiny village about 100 meters away. Within 1km you get to Brolio Castle which is a lovely wine estate with a wine tasting room, and a castle to visit. Here there is a second good restaurant. Gaiole in Chianti is a town about 11km away, it has a grocery shop, baker, post office, bank and several other facilities.
Gaiole in Chianti: Situated on the road ss408, from Siena to Montevarchi. Gaiole in Chianti owes its development to its position in the valley where an important market for the local populations was centered around the year 1000. Its name likely comes from "gaggiolo" used to indicate a large forest.
Radda in Chianti: Situated on the road SS429 from Castellina in Chianti to Montevarchi.
The "Leghe" (leagues), were born between the population of the Florentine country folk in the early years of three hundred for defensive reasons. At the head of every league was a captain or mayor named by the Florentine Signoria. He was obliged to reside in the provincial capital of the league.
