Hey all! Looking for any rec's in the Florence/San Gimignano area for winery visits and eateries. If there are any worthwhile excursions those would be welcome as well. Thanks in advance.

My two cents... Torrin breaks the 50 dollar threshold but I think is worth the extra 15 bucks. Nicora, McPrice, and Alta Colina are standouts for me. Nicora has a slight edge and is doing great things.
