Harvest Party

Each year after the successful harvest of plump and juicy grapes, we celebrate the good health of the land and that which nature has provided. Sampling various vintages from over the years, the harvest party at Villa Mangiacane is one of the most celebratory and festive in the Chianti region. Harvest time in Tuscany is scenically beautiful, exciting and not to be missed!


Olive Picking Party

Traditionally the olive harvest takes place later than the grape harvest. It is hard work as pickers skillfully reach into the high bows of the olive trees, at times placing themselves in great danger. The celebration of the Olive Harvest is one of wonderful cuisine, great wines and of course, delicious oils and bread. Join us for oil tastings, tapenades, and all things Olive!


Corporate Events & Conferences

The sheer size and facilities of the Mangiacane property make it a wonderful venue for Corporate and team building events. Our magnificent 15th Century dining room makes for a board room, while a number of dinner venues allow for private business meals. With ample accommodation, and meeting facilities, Magiacane maintains the perfect balance between work and play in a magical Tuscan setting.



Every special milestone deserves to be celebrated in style. The Mangiacane team will go out of their way to ensure you have a romantic anniversary trip in Tuscany. Enjoy fresh roses, candlelit dinners and steaming Champagne bubble baths during the course of your stay. Slow strolls through the timeless scenery, wine tastings and spa sessions will add to your unforgettable anniversary in Italy.

Our intimate wine cellar or Barrichia provides a wonderful and cozy atmosphere for wine tastings and Tuscan aperitivo’s in winter, while the loggia boasts dramatic views of the surrounding Tuscan hills.

Painting Workshops

Have you ever dreamed of living a day in the life of a Renaissance artist? Painting workshops at Mangiacane will teach you the age old technique of fresco painting, watercolor and acrylic. Sip Chardonnay in the sun with a paintbrush in your hand and rejoice in the simple pleasures of another tranquil day in Italy.


Sculpture Workshops

Washington Msonza is just one of the many Shona Sculptors who have visited Villa Mangiacane over the years. Guests are able to join him and others alike in the sculpture garden for sculpture workshops. These artists will not only impart with you knowledge and history of Zimbabwean sculpture, but technique too. A day in the sculpture garden will be unlike any other in Italy, and will be difficult to forget.

"From the personal service to the romantic setting, quality of finish in the rooms as well as the original mansion, Glynn and his team have created a “truly YPO only” experience. Mangiacane is located a stones throw from downtown Florence, nestled in a hilltop surrounded by vines and olive groves… Walking in the estate’s private forest, enjoying a meal in the herb garden are but a few of the highlights. We will be back!"
-Mike Estment, YPO Member, Johannesburg South Africa
