Birthday party riding a Vespa in Chianti
Birthday party riding a Vespa in Chianti

For Sarah’s 18th birthday we chose and booked the Gourmet Vespa Tour in Chianti. Birthday party riding a Vespa in Chianti is the experience that our group has been wanting to do for some time on our next holidays in Tuscany and Sarah’s birthday has been the right occasion.

We reached Fornacette, the place where Sonia, Patrizio and Phil were waiting for us, and after a warm welcome we did the driving tests. Of all the members of the group, Amy proved to be the most insecure in driving but with Sonia’s calm suggestions she improved and luckily we all managed to leave|

Birthday party riding a Vespa in Chianti is a wonderful feeling and I certainly didn’t imagine that driving a Vespa is incredibly beautiful… but prudence is essential.

The first stop took place in Romita with an extraordinary breakfast of Tuscan specialties in the panoramic room of the grocery store. The toast to Sarah with fruit juice was perfect!

Badia a Passignano, protected by the Antinori vineyards and ancient cypresses, welcomed us with its imposing figure. Sonia and Patrizio had booked the guided tour of the abbey. It was their birthday present to Sarah and the whole group. The visit was very interesting. The climb that took us to Poggio al Sole was challenging for our Vespas. Poggio al Sole offered us a spectacular view of the Chianti and while sitting we enjoyed coffee and cappuccino at the bar.

Once we reached San Casciano we celebrated Sarah’s birthday at the Cantinetta del Nonno di Giuseppe with fresh pasta with truffles, mixed roast meat and a selection of tiramisu. Fantastic! After lunch Phil accompanied us on a short visit to San Casciano and we discovered, to our surprise, that Phil is a professor of medicine from the United States and has received recognition in various parts of the world.

Once back in Fornacette we left the Vespas and went by car to celebrate Sarah at the San Giusto farm where we tasted their extraordinary products. The excellent wines, olive oil, vin santo with cantuccini and Lorenzo’s honey with cheese.

We were happy to say goodbye and thank the Vespa Tour in Chianti team for this unforgettable day.
