Ristorante, Enoteca La Vinsantaia
La Vinsantaia wine bar and restaurant in Castelnuovo Berardeng (tel: +39 0577 357028), is one of our favourite restaurants in Tuscany. Andrea Anichini, owner and sommelier, has a rare and wondeful taste in food, wine, music (mostly jazz) and ambience and he has an authentic passion for the area’s best, most rare and most delicious local food products. At La Vinsantaia (also known as The Table for Saints and Sinners) you can stop by for a glass of Chianti Classico and a chat with Andrea or you can spend an entire evening over a 5 course olive oil tasting dinner, perfectly paired to some of Tuscany's greatest wines.
The menu is intentionally simple, almost essential, because the stars of La Vinsantaia are the natural flavors of the precious local ingredients.
