Welcome to Borgo Argenina!

When you reach the gravel road leading to the Borgo, (the hamlet) our "receptionist dogs" Pasqualina and Giuseppina will greet you and show you the way to the main house.
Then, over a glass of local wine on our terrace, I can share the fascinating history of Chianti with you and we can plan your Tuscan itineraries and the cooking class.

Special gift for all our guests:

  • My cookbook containing my family recipes
  • A hand drawn map of Tuscany highlighting our choice of Chianti wineries and restaurants
  • A complementary wine tour and tasting with our good friends Andrea and Franco Casini at their winery 'I Sodi' in Monti

When you get here it will be even more beautiful than you ever imagined and you will fall in love with Borgo Argenina and our amazing land.
Just come!

The perfect Home Base for your Tuscany vacation

Chianti Classico - Gallo NeroBorgo Argenina is a tiny and enchanting medieval hamlet made up of four restored villas dating back to 998 A.D.

Nestled in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, it's within walking distance to Brolio Castle - birthplace of the world-famous 'Black Rooster' wine-Chianti Classico.

Borgo Argenina Bed & Breakfast, is the perfect place to experience Italian hospitality and an authentic Tuscan cooking class. Our charming villas in a quaint countryside setting have stunning views over the Chianti vineyards and olive groves.

We are centrally located in Chianti, 20 minutes from Siena and one hour away from Firenze. The famous towns of Cortona, San Gimigniano and the wine regions of Montalcino and Montepulciano - home of the exquisite Brunello and Nobile wines - are just a short drive away.
