I don't particularly want to do a guided tour, we tend to prefer to be independent, but then we also don't want to drive if we will be wine tasting.
I'll take a look at the threads you posted. If you have any specific recommendations, would love to hear them!
I will be staying in Florence for 4 nights from Thursday - Monday this coming October and would like to take 1-2 day trips to other towns, to some good vinyards. I don't want to go through my hotel for arrangements, so I am hoping someone can recommend some ideas.
