I would prefer to drive to the wineries on day trips from San Gimignano...could someone please suggest specific wineries for two different days...one in Chianti and the other in Montepulciano and Montalcino? I'd rather not do a tour...Thanks!
You will see that finding a winery in Chianti or in Montalcino and Montepulciano will not be a problem In fact along the road you'll see several signs of local farms and wineries, open for wine tastings and wine cellar tours.
In Chianti Classico near Florence the most famous wineries are probably the Castello di Vicchiomaggio and Castello da Verrazzano both near Greve in Chianti. One of the most famous in the Sienese Chianti Classico is Castello di Brolio of the Ricasoli family near Gaiole in Chianti.
