My family and I (older teens) are staying at Villa vignamaggio and would like to do some wine tasting on our own. We have a car and would like to visit scenic wineries. We will be driving from Florence to villa vignamaggio, What are your suggestions? And also we will be there 3 days can you suggest other fun activities for us to do, Places to see and maybe a good recommendation for a fun cooking class?!

Wine tasting on your own
two of my favorite places for wine tasting are right in that area.
They are two completely different experiences:
one is a small family run place called Altiero and it is close to Greve *it should definitely include a side trip to Montefioralle
the other is closer to Giaole in Chianti called Rocca di Castagnoli with a lovely environment and a wide selection of wines (all their own prodution) that are worth tasting.
