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.
