I GREPPI DI SILLI (The Steep Slopes of Silla) agritourism takes its name from its location on a hillside approximately 300m above sea level. In the past, on the natural slopes of this part of the countryside, many low-walled, steeply sloping terraces were built (hence the name ‘Steep Slopes’) to facilitate the cultivation of vines and olive trees. Surrounded by oak woods, olive groves and vineyards, the little farming hamlet has an enchanting ‘beatific’ panoramic view, typical of this area of Chianti with its varied shades of green: the silvery tones of olive trees, the intense green of vineyards, the dark green of cypresses and the misty shades of the distant mountains.
The Alfani family lives in the hamlet and runs the agritourism farmstead, taking care of their guests and helping them make their Tuscan holiday a rich and enjoyable experience.

The most appreciated and much enjoyed event for guests at I Greppi di Silli is the welcome dinnerorganized by the Alfani family early on each week, a pleasant opportunity for spending time together and savouring traditional dishes accompanied by bottles of prized Chianti Classico wines.
Each week there are guided tours of the farm’s activities and the local cooperative wine cellar at Castelli del Grevepesa, where interesting guided wine and olive oil tasting sessions can end the tour.
The peacefulness of the hamlet and the surrounding countryside offer hours of total relaxation, but more industrious guests who feel an affinity for the agricultural life can get to know the techniques employed in the cultivation of grapes and olives, as well as learn the various phases of their transformation, during a guided visit to the Castelli del Grevepesa cellar with which the farm has been associated since 1965, the year it was set up. This is where our grapes, grown with devotion in the vineyards and picked by hand in the traditional way, become prized bottles of Chianti Classico wine.
The production and sale of extra virgin olive oil are directly undertaken by the farm: the olives, hand picked from the plants (brucatura), are cold-pressed whole to give a fruity flavour and intense aroma, excellent for seasoning our traditional dishes.
At I Greppi di Silli there are many surprises to help you rediscover the pleasures of the simple country life: the enjoyment of a homemade cake, the delight in a bottle of wine, the goodness of a basket of fresh fruit and the beauty of wildflowers, the loveliest symbol of a world where nature still occupies first place.
