Colombaia Winery, Colle di Val d'Elsa
Now head out of the heart of Chianti Classico to the greater Chianti region and towards the beautiful town of Colle Val d'Elsa (which is well worth a good wander too, and if you want to stop for dinner, check out the restaurant Officina della Cucina Popolare in the old part of town: http://www.cucina-popolare.com/).
Colombaia, a small, fourth-generation family run winery of only 4 hectares, produces organic, biodynamic wine. Their unique Colombaia Rosso Toscano IGT, is made from their oldest vines, their Colombaia white wine (Bianco Toscano IGT) is made with Trebbiano and Malvasia grapes, and from the youngest vineyard they make a red wine, aptly named Vigna Nuova.
