There are four beautiful churches and chapels within Volpaia’s ancient walls and its surrounding woods.
The Chapel of the Madonna del Fossato was built in the 17th Century in the woods close to a field where the Virgin Mary was said to have appeared to a group of local farmers.
The Church of St. Eufrosino dates back to 1443. It has been declared a national monument and is attributed to Michelozzo the celebrated architect who designed the Pazzi Chapel at Santa Croce and the Sacristy of the SS.Annunziata, both in Florence.
The Church of San Lorenzo, Volpaia’s patron saint, was built in the early 17th Century and, having been recently restored, is still in use and an ideal setting for a wedding ceremony.
Recently in Italy Discovery Real Time ran a series called “Wedding Planner” and one of its most successful episodes was on a wedding held in Volpaia. The large party of young guests enjoyed an unforgettable weekend, with everything from the ceremony in a church decorated with olive trees and an internal lawn, to the lunch, evening fireworks and dancing until the early hours of the morning.
Guests are allowed to use the most prestigious buildings in the perfect medieval village as well as the owner’s private garden. Its terraces, leading down to a swimming pool, overlook a breathtaking view of the Tuscan countryside and its magnificent rose garden is the perfect setting for the most important day of your life.
Over 300 people can be comfortably seated and it is elegantly and discreetly equipped with space for caterers, loggias for the outdoor bars and buffets, terraces for the tables and poolside aperitifs.
Tents and gazebos can be erected in the garden and the deconsecrated Church of St. Eufrosino is the perfect locale for after-dinner music and dancing.
The winery’s villas and apartments can comfortably accommodate up to fifty people. Click here to view villas and apartments.
