I am planning a trip to Tuscany in a few weeks. My girlfriend and I will be spending a day in Florence on Sept 13th. However, we are planning to rent a car and drive through the Tuscan countryside on the 14th and 15th (Sun & Mon) on our way to Rome. We are planning a (lazy) drive through the region and would like to stop by a couple of wineries over the two days. If it's not too much trouble, I had a few questions . . .
- What area and wineries would you suggest that we try to see? (She would probably prioritize the beauty of the estate over the depth of wine.)
- Will any of them be open on a Sunday? (I noticed that the Greve festival was that same weekend...would it be worth a stop on the last day of the festival...the 14th)?
- Do you have a recommendation for a rustic, charming farmhouse hidden in the countryside situated among the vineyards?
Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to provide. I want this to be a special trip for her!
