Help with loding - Tuscany - October 16 and 17

We will be participating in the Ecomarthonadelchianti Sunday (15 km from Siena)- and the taking a cooking class pick up just outside Florence on Monday. We are looking for accomodations (2 couples) for Saturday and Sunday night. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. We will have a car therefore we are not limited by bus or train restrictions.
Thank you for your help!

kybourpon - i have booked the Mulino di Querece Grossa on your recoomendation,however, i am a bit concerned as when i bring this hotel up on trip advisor - it brings me to the dirtest hotels.. should i be concerned? From there it notes the reasturant as being a great place to eat, but can't find, and it may be me, actual hotel reviews. We leave in a couple of weeks so looking to mkae sure we are all set.

thanks for your help.
