    Default Chianti in October

    Would it be possible to visit Chianti in late October/early November?
    Not forgetting the umbrellas?

    .... also, harvest is done, grapes are in, and the wine maker is
    contentedly listening to the fermenting must bubbling ... What work
    there is (there is ALWAYS work!) would be in the cellars ... hmmm.
    Possibility.

    September is harvest time, this year, AFAIK, harvest started c.
    September 5th. If you want to visit the producers, it may not be the
    best time of the year. ( I read somewhere that most wine producers in
    Bourgogne died in September, durin g harvest. Go figure )

    Agree. But the question was the best time to visit Tuscany, not Tuscan
    winemakers ;-)

    best times.

    As Nils intimated in his post you may find some rain the later you go.
    October is usually a good time to travel, but I think Sep is better
    for Italy as my experience in October has been spotty.
