One year after its English-language debut, Slow Wine, the guide to Italian wineries approved as good, clean and fair by Slow Food Italy is premiering a new and updated edition. To celebrate the launch, Slow Wine will be doing a walk-around tasting tour in New York City, Miami and San Francisco.
In New York City, the walk around tasting will feature over 75 selected producers with 15 Italian regions represented. With the purchase of a ticket, every attendee will receive a complimentary copy of the THE SLOW WINE GUIDE 2nd edition (a $25 value).
“With Slow Wine we have changed the way of reviewing wine,” comments Marco Bolasco, CEO of Slow Food Editore. Three symbols are used in the guide to evaluate each winery:
- The Snail, the Slow Food symbol, signals a cellar that has distinguished itself through its interpretation of sensorial, territorial, environmental and personal values in harmony with the Slow Food philosophy.
- The Bottle, allocated to cellars that show a consistently high quality throughout their range of wines.
- The Coin, an indicator of great value.
Where: Three-Sixty°, 10 Desbrosses St, NYC
When: January 28th, 2013, 6:30PM - 9:00PM
To solidify the 28th as the biggest night in Italian wine tasting and education in NYC, Slow Wine is collaborating with Vinitaly International. Vinitaly, who holds the largest wine event in the world in Verona every year, will offer this feature:
- Masterclass*: "Call it Prosecco: only if it origins from the Prosecco area" (hosted by Susannah Gold) will begin at 6:45PM
*=Masterclass entry is complementary and on a first come, first serve basis.
Light refreshments will be served. Must be 21+ to attend, ID required.
A portion of the proceeds of every ticket sold will be donated to the Slow Food NYC chapter.

About Slow Wine
The Slow Wine Guide, published by Slow Food Editore (the publishing arm of Slow Food Italy**) adopts a new approach to wine criticism and looks at a variety of factors to evaluate wineries in their entirety, taking into consideration the wine quality, typicity and adherence to terroir, value for money, environmental sensitivity and ecologically sustainable viticultural practices.
**Slow Food Italy is the Italian national branch of Slow Food International, a global grassroots organization that envisions a world in which all people can access and enjoy food that is good for them, good for those who grow it and good for the planet. A non-profit member-supported association, Slow Food was founded in Italy in 1989 to counter the rise of fast food and fast life, the disappearance of local food traditions and to encourage people to be aware about the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and how our food choices affect the rest of the world.
