Tuscany has a millenary winemaking tradition. Although the production of wine was introduced into the Italian peninsula by the Greeks, it is thought that in Tuscany the production of wine developed slightly less than three thousand years ago thanks to the Etruscans, ancient inhabitants of this land.
The Romans subsequently rationalized the production with more cutting-edge cultivation and winemaking techniques. It was, however, in the Middle Ages, when wine consumption extended to the poorest classes, that wine became a very popular drink.
In the 19th century, it was thanks to the intuitions of some illustrious men that the traditional Tuscan wines we know today took shape. The first ones were the well known Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and Nobile di Montepulciano.
After the Second World War, the laws and regulations that were introduced aimed at safeguarding the territory and tradition and protecting the products from possible adulteration or counterfeiting.
Over the past twenty years, Tuscany has become one of the main world destinations for wine tourism, and this is precisely what we have been dealing with for years.
Our agency is called Tuscan Organic Tours and offers food and wine tours in Tuscany. Our tours include guided visits to organic and biodynamic farms and wineries. Some of them are family-run, more rustic and authentic, others are the result of substantial investments that affect the quality of the products.
Customers, and not only, of the Tuscan Organic Wines shop will thus have the opportunity to get to know the places and people who gave life to the products they enjoyed.
