Since April 2017 inside the Albergo del Chianti you can have lunch and dinner at Diversus restaurant , we serve fresh fish and seafood dishes with wine pairing
@ Diversus we have different ways of seeing and interpreting food yet with the same goal: to offer high-quality seasonal local products in a beautiful blend of smells and tastes. We bring the best of the Tuscan coast to the countryside.
A nice selection of Tuscan wines served by the glass but you can also discover other italian regions and foreign wines.
Traditional Tuscan cuisine offers flavoursome and historical dishes, whereas the modern version takes its cue from the traditional cuisine but is lighter and more digestible.

Bernard and Rita Buys - Cornelis are not only the co-owners of Albergo del Chianti but have also a beautiful property „Le Muricce” just outside Greve, all the Muricce wines are served @ Diversus and you can also buy them in our wineshop.
In the heart of Tuscany and the region of the Chianti Classico, half way between Florence and Siena, lies the old town of Greve in Chianti.
The Chianti region is world renowned for its breathtaking scenery and historical towns, its delicious olive oils, the local white and black truffles and above all, its magnificent wines.
Greve in Chianti is surrounded by the most gorgeous vineyards, mostly in the villages ofPanzano, Radda in Chianti and Gaiole.
Some three kilometres outside this town, hidden in the Tuscan hills, and on your way to the lovely village of Lamole, you can find the winery Le Muricce.
Le Muricce has 3,65 acres of vineyards, of which 1,20 acres are situated around the estate. The other vineyard La Casina has 2,45 acres and is situated on the south facing hills just outside Panzano.
The Gateway to CHIANTI
The world renowned vineyards of Chianti are visible even before you cross the local government line of Greve in Chianti but, it isn’t until you actually walk into the triangular shaped square, with its stone pavement, and inhale the small town atmosphere that you can really truly say you are having a Chianti experience. Looking at the tranquil atmosphere of this fairly busy little town, one would never guess that the town of Greve, and the headquarters of the local comune, had been caught in the crossfire of Florence and Siena for hundreds of years.
Heading out of the city of Florence, following the infamous Chiantigiana, Greve will stand as a defining landmark. Once you pass through its borders, just outside of the town of Grassina, you will feel the air change, the vineyards will become more pronounced and wherever you turn there will be a sign on the road, boasting of vino for sale. The convenient position close to public transport, main roads and of course the beautiful monuments of Florence point to the fact that Greve is a great base to explore Tuscany.
