Wine tasting in Tuscany--enoteca or winery?

Jump to last reply

We will be spending a week the end of October in Tuscany. Wine will not be the focus of our stay but we do want to visit Chianti, Montalcino and Montepulciano and do some wine tasting.

I'd rather not do a tour at each winery and most of the research I've done seems to indicate that a reserved tasting includes a tour. Also, we would rather stay away from the wineries that are on the tour bus route.

I'm not sure when the harvest will happen so I wonder how busy most of the small vineyards will be the third week of October to give tastings.

Should our first stop in towns be the TI, would they have a listing of wineries with degustation hours or should we just select an enoteca that serves the local wines? We have never used wine shops for wine tasting but is that the way it's done in Italy?

When we were in Umbria we did an orgainized full day wine tour but I prefer not to spend one or two full days with a wine tour group on this trip. Thanks for any comments or suggestions. Deborah
