Vintage experience by Fiat 500 in the Chianti with Wine Making

Discover one of the most beautiful places on Earth during the peak of its charm, driving a true Italian vintage Fiat 500. Explore the Tuscan countryside during that magical time of year when everyone is busy in the vineyards, picking the grapes and transforming them into the delicious Tuscan wine.

Drive a Fiat 500 in the wonderful Tuscany!

You will get a unique chance to take part and get right in the middle of the action in this ancestral activity, discovering the source of the wondrous wine that is famous in the whole world, seeing its secrets and creation with your own eyes.
Our exclusive tour from Florence is dedicated to Italian cars, Tuscany and its wine heritage. The experience starts in amazing Florence, getting in one of the fascinating vintage Fiat 500 cars and heading outside the city, where you can discover the authentic Chianti countryside, its typical romantic roads and picturesque sights.

Visit an authentic 15th century villa

You will then drive towards a 15th century old Tuscan villa, where we have devised the perfect Tuscan activity. You will be led by the head wine maker into the vineyards, harvesting grapes and experiencing what it means to be a winemaker. You will then take the grapes to the press area.
The real fun begins once you get into the action. The amazing winemaking tour of Tuscany continues with the traditional technique of grape stomping, where you can participate and step barefoot on the grapes you just picked. This is an ancient art, today wine is made with modern machines and presses, so you can observe those too, learning more about this fascinating occupation.

Taste some delicious food and typical wine from Tuscany

The Tuscan experience from Florence continues with a visit to the cellars and then you will have a delicious Tuscan picnic by the pool of the villa. This will be accompanied with a wine and olive oil tasting session.

Fun and memorable trip

We did the wine making and tasting tour in October. It was lots of fun and a great opportunity to chat to other people and take in the scenery, eat delicious food, taste wine and drive these lovely little cars. The driving part is really just to have fun, you won't learn much about what you are seeing in the Tuscan hills so not a tour as such, but you will enjoy it. Also, take note of what they say on the website, if you are not comfortable driving a manual car you may struggle! It does take a bit of getting used to, but the guide (David) was very relaxed and patient with everyone. Highly recommended for a relaxing day out of the city.

One Of Our Favorite Tours!

Driving through the countryside of Tuscany has been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember, so this was a tour I definitely wanted to try during my first trip to Europe. My husband found this tour through the internet and signed us up. David was our tour guide and we had a small group of 7 people, which was the perfect size for an intimate experience. The vintage Fiats were beautifully maintained and the experience of riding them is unforgettably fun. Just know you have to be an experienced manual stick driver to drive them. The opportunity to stomp on actual Italian grapes at the Villa Le Piazzole was definitely the highlight of the day! Another bucket list item checked off during this tour. The villa was also beautiful and the lunch we had in their wine cellar was so delicious and impressively set up.

Guaranteed to be a treasured memory

I did the "wine-making tour" with my younger sister and it was unforgettable! We zipped around Florence in our little yellow Fiat, Jacamo, in a caravan of three other cars. Our guide, David, was charismatic and very knowledgable. We made several stops at scenic overlooks before heading to the villa for the wine-making portion of the trip. Then we got to have our "I Love Lucy" moment and stomp on the grapes! Unfortunately we did not get to meet the wine maker or pick the grapes since it had been raining and the ground was very muddy. But that did not take away from the tour. The lunch, provided in wine cellar of the villa, was delicious -- as was the villa wine and homemade olive oil that accompanied it. David told us all about the vineyard and our group swapped travel stories as we munched our fresh bruschetta, proscioutto, pasta, liver pate and cheese. At no point did the tour seem forced, boring or awkward. The whole thing was an exciting adventure from start to finish! It's an incredible memory -- don't miss out on this opportunity!!

Love those little cars!

We did the wine making tour and it was quite a memorable experience! We started by selecting our little car, Roberto. Now Roberto was a bit unpredictable, but overall once you get to know him you can't help but love him. We had a great fun tour driving through the hills in a parade of colorful cars. This was great fun and everyone seemed to be enjoying riding and tooting their horns. Then we picked some grapes in a vineyard and had a short lesson on how wine is made. We did get to stomp on some grapes in a wine barrel, which was fun and then on to a great lunch and wine tasting, poolside at the winery. The wines were good, the food was regional and quite good and the company was fantastic. We all enjoyed the experience and had a great time. Roberto died on the final hill to the winery and we ended up walking up the hill, but he got a second wind and we were able to drive back to the garage. Everyone was rooting for him so I think that helped! We would definitely recommend this incredible experience, viva Roberto!
