Slow Food Editore launches their 2019 Slow Wine Guide with their annual US tour making stops in five major cities nationwide. The Slow Wine Guide maintains their unique approach to wine criticism which looks at a variety of factors to evaluate wineries. The selection process is rigorous and is based on the fundamental Slow Wine principals – sustainability, transparency, connection with the land and of course, the high quality.

Slow Wine was established to showcase the current Italian wine landscape. The guide features reviews of over 400 different wineries, each one visited by Slow Food experts.

Slow Wine continues their new endeavor of expanding into the United States this year with reviews of California, and for the first time ever, Oregon wineries. The American wineries were reviewed using the same “Slow” philosophy that is at the core of the Guide. In inclusion of US 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.

Slow Wine Editore, publisher of the Slow Wine Guide, will hold tasting events for press and trade during their annual multi-city US tour, stopping in San Francisco, Portland, Denver, New York and Boston.

Join us to preview this innovative guide, discover new wines, and meet the people behind 100+ Italian and American select producers who represent the Slow Wine values.

**Trade and media events are complimentary — RSVP required. Please bring business card.
***Registration is available on site.

About the organizer

Organized by
Slow Wine

The Slow Wine Guide evaluates over 400 different wineries and treats each with the utmost respect and attention. The Slow Wine team prides itself on the human contact it has with all producers, which is essential to the guide's evaluations. While other guides limit their relationship to a blind tasting and brief write up, Slow Wine takes the time to get personal with each winery in order to create a well-informed, detailed review of the wines themselves and the people behind the production. Slow Wine selects wineries that respect and reflect their local terroir and practice sustainable methods that benefit the environment. And for the first time ever, those wineries that receive the snail or the official Slow Wine seal are 100% free of chemical herbicides, a quality that the Slow Wine Guide continues to passionately support.
