Slow Food is launching its first-ever wine guide in English, Slow Wine, which 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. The guide uses three symbols 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

 

Join us to discover over 100 wines and meet the people behind 45 select Italian producers who represent the Slow Wine values. Learn more about Slow Wine and pick up your own complimentary copy.
