Additional Information

The Beginning

The 'Prosecco Van' concept has been popular in Europe for a number of years. In 2017 we wanted to hire one for our wedding but alas, none were to be found in the USA?! That's when the idea for Bella Bianchi came to be. 


The Piaggio Apé (Bee) is an important vehicle in Italy, widely used as a commercial vehicle that navigate the old narrow streets. We witnessed them in action when we lived there between 2011 to 2013. We loved the looks and sound of the little Apé's scooting around our beautiful little town on the lake, Porlezza, Como.


In late 2017 arrangements were made for our Vespacar to be imported to Michigan and converted into our own prosecco van. The man who was so instrumental in its transformation, Ken Johnson, is the foremost expert outside of Europe on the Piaggio Ape. His attention to detail is second to none and what he produced is an old-school quality finish that is often imitated but never comparable.


As he knew wanted our van to be finished to the highest quality, Ken made sure to keep it as original as possible and used the finest back bar equipment to compliment the vehicle. 


Nowadays with the popularity of websites like Pinterest and apps like Instagram, everyone wants to provide their friends and colleagues with a unique experience and we think we have just the little van to provide that wish! Salute!
