SLOW WINE NEW YORK - MARCH 1, 2018


Visit us here for more information on the US Tour!


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. They take into consideration wine quality, history and adherence to terroir, value, environmental sensitivity and ecologically sustainable methods of practice.

Wine is an agricultural product, just like any of the foods we eat, and has an impact on the lives of the people who produce it, as well as on the environment – through pesticides, herbicides and excessive water consumption which are all commonplace in conventional wine production.

Slow Wine was conceived to give a realistic snapshot of the current Italian wine landscape. The guide features reviews of over 400 different wineries, each one visited by Slow Food experts.

This year, Slow Wine has expanded their guide to include American wineries for the first time ever. The Californian wineries were reviewed using the same “Slow” philosophy that is at the core of the Guide. The move to add non-Italian wineries is not unprecedented – the 2017 edition added eight from Slovenia – but this year’s larger selection of wineries marks the Guide’s most aggressive steps to take their Slow philosophy worldwide. The Guide’s founding organization, Slow Food, has been international since 1989.

The Slow Wine guide publisher, Slow Wine Editore, and a delegation of its top wineries will hold tasting events for press and trade during their annual multi-city US tour, stopping in Atlanta, New York City, Houston and San Francisco. In Houston, Slow Wine Editore will join forces with Italy – American Chamber of Commerce of Texas to host one of the largest food and wine fairs in the US featuring Italian products. In addition, this year seven new Italian wineries received the distinguished Snail award, bringing the grand total in the guide to 195.

Join us to preview this innovative guide, discover new wines, and meet the people behind 50+ select Italian producers who represent the Slow Wine values.

This event is open to industry trade and press only; business cards and corresponding credentials will be required to enter. We reserve the right to deny admission.
