Tuscany Vineyards - which to visit?
We will be in Tuscany for 5 days (2 nights Montalcino, 3 nights in Siena)in June with a car. Can anyone recommend some vineyards to visit for sampling, tours, etc. Thanks so much!!!!

Fattoria Barbi, Castello Banfi, and Poggio Antico are all well known sites near Montalcino. However, the best tasting location is the enoteca in the fortezza in town. There must be 30 wine stores in Montalcino. You will not be deprived.

Banfi was nice. You need to reserve to have lunch and tour the winery, but you can go to their tasting and gift shop for free. It's very nice. ((b))

Diavole Vineyards and Winery was wonderful! It's about 20 minutes outside of Siena.
