Siena may not have a gay pride yet, but its first Bio Pride is a step into the right direction. At least if you agree that organic wine and food are the way forward. L'AIAB (Italy's association of organic producers) together with farmers and vineyards from central Tuscany have initiated the Bio-Distretto. The idea behind these organic districts is to move beyond the boundaries of a single organic producer and turn whole areas into production zones which follow the tenets of sustainable and pesticide-free agriculture.
The Bio Pride in Gaiole in Chianti will showcase the majority of wineries and farms involved in the organic districts of San Gimignano, Gaiole and Panzano /Greve in Chianti.
If you want to visit several vineyards in one, explore the hills to the north of Siena (the historic Chianti Classico area) and stop in Gaiole in Chianti. Grab a glass and taste your way through Tuscan wines which hail from organically and biodynamically grown vineyards.
