How would you like spend your Sunday afternoon in Tuscany?

Many who know me, know my love for all things vintage. Amber Ostrich is where my original business of selling all things vintage was born.

This past Sunday, the local Fiat 500 Motor Club called CinquinoSiena had a gathering of their classic Fiat 500’s and a wine tasting for locally produced wines in the territory of Berardenga.

There were over 40 of these super mini vehicles, which their owners go to great lengths to restore, and personally customize to their liking.

 

 

 

They were on their way to a Chianti Classico Wine Tasting Event, which was held  at Certosa di Pontignano,  a beautiful 14th century Abbey  just outside Siena, Italy.

We were had stopped with our client Jenny to take some photos on the property of the Losi family estate. We were perfectly poised to capture the following short video (see bottom of post) of the vintage cars as they motored their way down the country lane that runs through the Losi family vineyard.

We were honored to receive a special invitation to attend the wine tasting with the members of the club. Our client Jenny was very pleased to be able to sample such a variety of wines in a beautiful setting.

You just can’t help but smile as these classic cars roll by. They remind me of an era where friends and families would take a Sunday ride through the countryside and make a picnic or walk in the forest.

Stay tuned….. for re-cap of this coming Sunday as we explore more of the local color here in Tuscana.
