About Lis Grundmann
I'm born in Germany, I studied architecture at Berlin. I live in Italy since 1991 where I met my husband Roberto. We took over the estate from Roberto's parents in 1999, where we live with our 2 children and Roberto's mother Eli.
Lis Grundmann purchased this House in 1974
Why Lis Grundmann chose Radda In Chianti
In 1974 Giorgio Bianchi moved his family from Milan to Radda to fulfil the dream of a lifetime: living in the country and learning to make wine. This was a brave choice at a time when Chianti was a wild and wonderful place, economicially backward, and without good quality winegrowing and tourism, with a very few exceptions. With passion and a great deal of effort Giorgio and his wife Eli rebuilt the long-abandoned farmhouse, replanted the vineyards and built a small cellar. After Giorgio passed away prematurely in 1999, his son Roberto took over the winery. He and his wife Lis have succeeded in developing the farm’s potential and bringing its wine production to an excellent standard.
What makes this House unique
Val delle Corti is a realy beautiful place, even if we live and work here every day we still see it. I first came here as a turist and I enjoyed the possibilities to see all these cities of tuscan art and to relax at home in the garden with its beautiful view, the sun and peace.

Views for days...
Lovely house on an amazing property with views in every direction. Close to town and great restaurants in the middle of wine nirvana. Hosts are great. We cannot wait to get back.
Val delle Corti is waiting for you - we will be happy to welcome you again! Greetings from Radda.
Lovely quiet roomy place near Radda. Great location for Chanti.
Very nice place. Quiet and peaceful but very close to Radda which is a very pleasant and interesting town. Wonderful views from the cottage. Lis and Roberto are excellent hosts and everything ran to plan except it was cooler than usual for the time of year.
A perfect week in Radda
We thoroughly enjoyed our week at the Capanna. The location about 5 min drive from Radda worked well for us. The house was quiet, spacious and perfect for us and our dog - the house and kitchen were very well equipped (including a few items Lis hat put in the fridge to get us started), and with comfortable beds. Luckily the weather was such that we could enjoy the patio as well, but the heating also worked well when needed. Lis and Roberto were very helpful with restaurant recommendations and reservations. We hope to have an opportunity for a return visit.
We had a wonderfull and relaxing stay and ours hosts were of great assistance when planning our visits to other areas of Tuscany and both Lisa & Roberto were most friendly during our stay,and being so close to Radda in Chianti was great when looking for daily supplies.The location of Podere Val Delle Corti situated in the centre of Chianti gave great access to surrounding areas would love to return.

Fantastic location right in the heart of chianti
I stayed here during april, when the weather can be cold and can Ben marvelous, not matter what the weather is doing Tuscany and chianti are always beautiful. This was our home base for trips to Florence, montepulciano and other short drives around the chianti region. Rada was my personal favorite, exactly what I was looking for in a Tuscan holiday. Lis was wonderful, accommodating and extremely friendly, I could not recommend this property for a chianti stay more !
Perfect little wine cottage in the heart of chianti
Lis and Roberto were so welcoming and helpful during our stay, even having a bottle of wine and food stocked for our arrival. We enjoyed the countryside with charming towns and the wineries along the windy roads. We were able to make day trips to Florence and Siena and other Tuscan towns with relative ease by car. We would highly recommend this home for a relaxing and enchanting visit.
