Even in ancient times the “Casa Ripi” was not only a farmhouse, but also a tavern and harbourage, ’cause of its location near to the pilgrim tray & salt-way which leads from Volterra to Siena. Thanks to the sunny hills around the property, the viticulture was very successful and the vine from Casa Ripi became famous as the most tasty and powerful in the area. Noble families from Siena used to order that extraordinary red vine for their festive occasions.
The farmhouse, established in the 10th century, has been recently restored, preserving its typical medieval design. At the first floor it provides a wide apartment for up to 8 guests, with a huge scenic terrace. The ground floor hosts other apartments: One designed for 2 to 3 persons with a vine-pergola and two apartments for up to 6 guests, each.
