Help with Chianti itinerary please!

Jump to last reply

Hello! We will be traveling through Italy during our honeymoon at the end of May and want to tour wineries in the Chianti region as we make our way down towards Rome. We have decided to hire a driver for this day since we'd like to taste wine and not worry about getting behind the wheel. We only have one day to dedicate to this area in Tuscany, so we need to maximize our time. At the same time we don't want to feel too incredibly rushed. So we were thinking of visiting/touring two wineries in the Chianti area and having lunch at one of them. We have been looking at Volpaia, Badia a Coltibuono and Castello di Meleto. We love charming, historic places and tours, so this is why these places appeal to us, in addition to the wine. I'm wondering if anyone has experience with these locations and wineries? Are they difficult to get to? If you had to choose two of these due to time constraints, which two would you choose? They all three seem wonderful, so this has proved to be a very difficult decision! Thanks for your thoughts!
