Accessible Winery from Rome or Florence

My boyfriend and I will be in Rome and Florence in early september. We would like to go to a winery, however, we are on a budget and cannot really afford to rent a car (and we would rather not hire a driver). Does anyone have suggestions for a nice/good winery we could visit that is easily accessible from one of these cities. Thanks everyone

I apologize for not actually answering your question - - but I am curious if your intrest lies in tasting (and presumably, purchasing perhaps) some locally produced wines - - and typically at prices well under what you can pay in the US...

...or are you actually intereted in viticulture and winemaking?

For the latter, a visit to a winery is clearly what you seek...

...but for the former, you should consider an hour (or several) in a good enoteca. Search "enoteca" here on this forum, and you will get lots of ideas for both cities. I have raved about Bucone (on via di Ripeta near Piazza del Popolo, in Rome) more than once.

Best wishes,

Rex

Zoe - CAF and Sita do coach tours to a winery in the Chianti area from Florence if you're interested in that option:

Hope this helps ...
