Vintage Fiat Road Trip with Bolgheri Winery Tour and Lunch
- Vintage Fiat 500: Take the wheel of this authentically restored, 2-door, 2-cylinder classic Italian city car. What this vehicle lacks in raw power, it more than makes up for in singular style.
- Bolgheri sights: Following your guide, you'll drive cypress-lined avenues into the hilly countryside and, finally, to the medieval village of Bolgheri with its storybook-worthy castle and ancient stone structures.
- Winery tour and lunch: In a wine region famed for its Super Tuscans, including Ornellaia and Sassicaia, you'll stop at a classic estate for a guided winery tour and leisurely lunch.
About this Livorno Tour
If you've never driven a vintage Fiat 500, gear up to earn your classic car enthusiast badge right now. This city coupe, first launched as the Nuova 500 in 1957, may only have been powered by fewer than 20 ponies, but its style factor has always been unsurpassably souped-up. So climb into the driver's seat for a genuine Italian adventure.
Your destination is Bolgheri, a tiny medieval village put on the map by poet Giosue Carducci with his ode to Davanti San Guido (Before San Guido). He particularly brought the local landscape to life in this verse: "The cypresses of Bolgheri, tall and frank, go all the way to San Guido in double lines." You'll cruise along these tree-lined roads and into Bolgheri's hills to catch all the sights, including a picture-perfect castle and ancient stone structures.
Go ahead and drink in this wine region. But think premium, not ordinary. Because you're in the land of the Super Tuscans, which includes Ornellaia and Sassicaia. These wines are guaranteed to be produced with at least 85% regional grapes. Although their technical name is now IGT (Indicazione Geografica Tipical), the Super Tuscans moniker was popularized in the 1970s, earning these wines global interest and acclaim.
You won't just hear about the Super Tuscans. You'll experience them with an informative guided tour of a local winery. Of course, this is Tuscany, where good food is as much a part of the cultural fabric as good wine. So you'll also enjoy a hearty lunch in Bolgheri before you climb back into your Fiat for the spirited drive back to Livorno.
Super Tuscans fight for justice
By the 1970s, Italy established DOC (Denominazione di Origine Conrollata) classifications to strictly regulate winemaking traditions in each region. But some Tuscan producers heroically pushed back against the power, shunning the Chianti DOC restrictions and boldly blending international varietals with their own Sangiovese grapes. These wines captured the attention and hero worship of a big time wine critic who gave them a flashy new name…Super Tuscans.
