    Smile Where to stay for 2 Nights in Chianti for Wine tasting (with a car)


    My husband and I are visiting Tuscany in October and after 2 nights in Florence we are driving to Chianti region for 2 nights (20-22nd Oct) to spend a few days visiting different wineries ... and possibly seeing San Gimignano as well.

    We will have a car but if we are drinking we'd rather have the option not to drive (either take a bus tour that stops at alot of wineries - can anyone recommend?) or stay in/near a town that has a number of wineries walking distance.

    We love the small, medievil towns with cobble stone streets (much more than the modern/big towns).

    Any suggestions on where we should base ourselves in Chianti? And any good farm houses to stay at that are walking distance to town/a few wineries? (our budget is around 70 Euro per night)

    Thank you in advance!!!

    Default my opinion


    It depends on what kind of winneries you are looking for.
    The family owned estate/farmhouse winneries are usually not easily reachble on foot.
    On the other hand, you could stay in a city like San Gimignano which is full of "enoteche", small bar like establishments that offer a huge variety of wines to try.

    Im sure someone alse will provide some options for taking buses, as im not personally very informed in this regard.
    I am a private Tuscan tour operator.and event manager., specialised in wine tours, cooking classes and countryside experiences.

    I will have to agree with Leonardo, most vineyards are not within walking distance of a town or have their offices and cantine in the walls of a small town.

    However, you can read this article for some more ideas about wine tasting without a car Greve in Chianti might be one of the easier solutions: you can reach Uzzano & Azienda Agricola Montefioralle Winery (just outside the town). are two of my favorites.

    Buon Viaggio,
