RADDA IN CHIANTI (SI)
Ristorante la Bottega di Volpaia
Ristorante la Bottega di Volpaia Arrive in the old town square of Volpaia and you will come across a charming building with a restaurant named “La Bottega” (the cellar) on one side and a wine bar, “Bar-Ucci,” on the other.
A Volpaia staple, La Bottega is owned and operated by the Barucci family – famous for eagerly greeting visitors with the same warmth shared with family and longtime friends. Papa Oriano works year-round to produce the finest seasoned pork and vegetables. Mama Gina – a mixture of joy, wisdom, experience – is an unrivaled master in the kitchen of the bottega. Her homemade pasta is known to enchant visitors along with her famous “ribollita” (a hearty vegetable soup) and other tasty Barucci family recipes. Experience charm and authenticity in the simplicity of this old world atmosphere of Bar-Ucci. Rich in Chianti tradition, Carla, the eldest daughter, encourages guests to create unforgettable moments with Barucci dishes that have been passed on from generation to generation. Distinct flavors and savory traditional recipes are the lifeblood of this family’s establishment. It’s this great passion for Chianti culinary traditions that have led Carla to research centuries-old cooking methods that she shares with others through Chianti-centric cooking classes.
Situated in the main square of Volpaia in Radda in Chianti, Bar Ucci is located directly behind the historic fountain, which old farmers called “l’abbeveratoio”. It was there where the cows, goats and sheep drank water during the hot summer days. During this time Bar Ucci used to be a stall and on the entrance, to this day, you can still see a big arch that reveals this history. Fast-forward to modern day and it has evolved into a wine bar where guests are bound to find a selection of distinct varietals from the local area of Radda in Chianti (including our own Fattoria di Montemaggio label), Panzano in Chianti, and other small villages nearby.
