Wine tour from Florence?

My friend and I would love to take a tour of wineries out of Florence. I had the big tour buses and would love to do a private tour, but our funds are limited. Does anyone know of a company that is good AND reasonably priced, and will pick us up in Florence? We wouldn't mind a small group tour with a van or something either.

Thanks!

Monica Iris does that. Have not met her but her prices are pretty good and she has picked friends up to take back to Florence Airport. Her web site is: http://www.monikairis.com/

Someone at your hotel could also give you recommendations.

another thought. Castello Verazzano does a great tour with lunch if you like. You could take a bus from Florence to Greve and get a taxi from there. Just google the castello and the buses run every 1 hour at the most.

Good suggestions, thanks. We are renting an apt. in Florence, so we have no hotel to help us.

Sorry about the duplicate posting, when I submitted I received an error message and when I came back to the post, it was posted twice.

Should have added that I wanted to but ran out of time.
