Gastronomy and wonderful Chianti wines at luxury country Hotel Villa le Barone in Tuscany
Gourmet cuisine is not only “nouvelle cuisine”. It is also genuine authentic cuisine, and this is what you will find at the country boutique hotel Villa le Barone.
Food and wine are often said to be the “soul” of Italy, and are important elements of hospitality. This is true at Villa le Barone, where local Tuscan chefs prepare day after day tasty Tuscan cooking, using only fresh ingredients: the “bio” labeled extra virgin olive oil comes from our own olive groves, where no pesticides are used.
The meat comes from our free range cattle in our farm in Maremma. The Tuscan “Pecorino “ cheese is also DOP (Denominazione di Origine Protetta ). The Villa’s idyllic location in the heart of Chianti offers premium access to both boutique and established vintners, and our selection of wines can certainly please the best discerning palates.
But eating and dining is not just about food; it is also about an overall experience encompassing place, menu and service. What you eat is important, but also where you eat factors high as well.
The “Chiantigiani “strongly believe that no meal should ever be rushed and should be enjoyed in a casual and comfortable environment. At Villa Le Barone our dining areas serve as the heart and pivotal center for social interaction.
The shady terrace areas for drinking “al fresco” are numerous; the old cellar has been lovingly converted into an inviting dining room for the evening meal. You will also be able to savor the candlelight atmosphere on the terraced dining patio, in the greenery.
All this will allow you to enjoy a truly wonderful Chianti dining experience.
