One day outside Florence by public transport
Hello! Please advise us: we’d like to spend one day close to Florence. Go to some village or small town, the best- visit a vineyard, drink wine, have a nice food and just relax and see something. But we’d like to take a bus or train.

It sounds like a day in Greve in Chianti would be perfect for you - read about it here:
Spend a day between the wine museum, visiting the main square and the Antica Falorni butcher shop, eating a nice lunch and drinking some fine wine (and enjoying gelato too) and maybe a walk to Montefioralle (if it isn't too hot).
At the bottom is the link to the bus line that gets you there and back to Florence
