A local trattoria

After visiting Fattoria Corzano e Paterno it was suggested we stop at Tratroria da Bule for lunch. When we arrived there were only a few tables filled but by the time we finished at 2:00pm the small restaurant we pretty much full. Apparently workers from Antonori winery frequent da Bule for lunch.


Visit to Fattoria Corzano e Paterno

Fattoria Corzano e Paterno, San Cascian Val di Pesa

Very enjoyable visit today to this beautiful property about 15 miles from Greve in Chianti.
