Organic Chianti Tuscan Wine Tour Program
If you are interested in organic, green living, why not experience this side of Chianti during your vacation in Tuscany? Tuscany has an incredible number of wonderful organic and biodynamic wineries in the heart of the famous wine-producing Chianti region, some of whom have always been organic thanks to their use of traditional Tuscan growing techniques. These wineries never switched to conventional farming when pesticide-use surged some 50 years ago. Other local wine producers have instead taken this path out of environmental concerns or personal beliefs, and have switched over to organic wine production as a way of being environmentally conscious. Thanks to this level of consciousness, Tuscany today is lucky to host dozens of organic and biodynamic growers and vintners growing grapes and making incredible natural wines in the Chianti hills.This is the Program
