Staying in Florence- hoping to drive to an agriturismo/ farm house for lunch/dinner
7 of us (5 adults and 2 children) will be traveling to Florence in a couple of weeks and staying there for my mother's 60th birthday. Her dream was to be "under the Tuscan sun" so I was hoping to rent a car or two and head out to Tuscany (the hills, vineyards, olive groves) to eat a meal outdoors at an agriturismo/farm house. Do you have any suggestions of a good place for this? Also, is Hertz the best place to rent from near Santa Maria Novella?

A trip into Chianti
Sounds like the perfect way to celebrate.
I would suggest two things, instead of renting a car look into the possibility of a NCC that means a driver with a car and let them take the hassle out of the getting around. This means that everyone can enjoy the trip and no need for a designated driver...everyone can do some wine tasting.
As for a meal out you might enjoy Candida Chianti House a real gem in Chianti.
