The Slow Wine Guide 2015 is Unveiled in the USA and Canada (Slow Food International PR)

Press Release: The Slow Wine Guide 2015 is Unveiled in the USA and Canada

Italian Wine from the Slow Food Perspective – to be Presented at the 2015 Slow Wine North American Tour Together with New Digital Magazine

Slow Food Italy will debut the new and updated edition of the Slow Wine guide during the 2015 Slow Wine North American Tour. With its English-language debut in 2011, Slow Wine, a guide to over 400 of Italy’s best wineries, critiques wine through the perspective of the Slow Food philosophy, believing that wine, just as with food, must be good, clean and fair – not just good.

The Slow Wine guide and a selection of its wineries will be holding tasting events for trade, press and consumers during their annual tour, visiting Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York City and Montreal in January and February 2015. Slow Wine will also participate in the Italian Trade Commission’s Vino 2015 in New York.

“We think it’s important to highlight how different types of wine exist. Wine is not just a product of a winery, but fruit of a certain soil, a specific climate, and a farming philosophy. With Slow Wine we have changed the way of reviewing wine,” said Giancarlo Gariglio, editor of Slow Wine.

Slow Wine is no longer just a wine guide. In April 2014, Slow Food also launched Slow Wine Magazine (www.slowwinemagazine.com), a digital magazine published in English, German and Italian. With six issues a year, the magazine recounts the world of Italian wine with an outlook of the Slow Food philosophy.

About Slow Wine

The Slow Wine Guide, published by Slow Food Editore (the publishing arm of Slow Food) 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 Wine was conceived to give a realistic snapshot of the current Italian wine landscape. The guide features reviews of 400 different wineries, each one visited by Slow Food experts. It is available for purchase on Amazon.com as well as in select bookstores.
