Chianti wine/food tour help

In August/September I will be traveling to Italy for the first time by myself. I have booked the first 5 nights to stay in Florence, then I am hoping to divide the remainder of my time between Siena, the Chianti region and Cinque Terre. I am looking for recommendations regarding my time in Siena/Chianti; I either would love to find a 3-4 day group trip that would combine wine tasting, culinary exploration, all transportation and lodging or it looks like I will be renting a car and be making my way through the Chianti region. I know there are some very expensive tours I could have put together for me but I think it would be fun (and cheaper) to join a group for a couple of days with a pre-determined itinerary.
This is my first big trip Ive planned for myself and Im feeling overwhelmed by the possibilities and I would really appreciate any advice people may have...
Any ideas?
