Slow Wine 2013

A Year in the Life of Italy’s Vineyards and Wines

by Slow Food Editore

A wine guide that looks beyond the glass

For the second year running, Slow Food International offers an English language edition of annual wine guide, Slow Wine, which adopts a new approach to wine criticism and looks at qualities that extend well beyond the palate. Slow Wine doesn’t simply select and review Italy’s finest bottles. It describes what’s in the glass, but also tells you what’s behind it. Namely the work, the aims and the passion of producers, their bond with the land and their choice of cultivation and cellar techniques — favoring the ones who implement ecologically sustainable winegrowing and winemaking practices. That’s not all! This year over half the producers listed will offer you a discount of at least 10% on your purchases, if you visit them with a copy of this guide in your hand.
