NEW YORK (PRWEB) – The acclaimed Italian wine organization, Slow Wine, recently concluded its national wine tour in the United States celebrating the publication of the 2023 Slow Wine Guide, including an Italian and US version. The US guide is now available for sale on the Slow Food USA website.
The 2023 edition of the USA Guide takes on an innovative approach to the wines of California, Oregon, New York, and Washington with in-depth coverage of leading eco-friendly producers. US National Co-editors Deborah Parker Wong and Pam Strayer and their team of dedicated field coordinators personally visit top producers and review their finest bottles on site. The Slow Wine Guide format provides a guide entry for each winery with sections about people, vineyards, and wines that include the way vineyards are farmed and detailed reviews of current-release wines.
Hundreds of trade and press attended Slow Wine’s five-city 2023 USA Tour featuring 156 Italian producers, 24 from the US and 11 from Latin America. More than 450 industry professionals attended the New York City stop on March 14th, while more than 240 consumers participated in a second tasting.
Slow Wine events hosted across the US were also well attended, with 445 wine trade and press in San Francisco on March 6th, 214 in Seattle on March 7th, 153 in Dallas on March 9th, and 236 in Miami on March 13th.
This year marks the third year the English language USA Slow Wine Guide has been published, the only annual guide to American wines. The print book profiles 290 wineries from California, Oregon, Washington, and New York. More than 250 wineries are recognized with Slow Wine awards. Twenty-four of those award-winning wineries joined the five-city tour, showcasing the innovation in sustainability by winemakers as well as the unique terroirs of some of the most recognized wine regions in the US.
About Slow Wine
The Slow Wine Guides evaluate more than 2,000 Italian wineries, a small selection from Slovenia, and more than 290 American producers. Uniquely, it relies on in-person visits and the human interaction it has with all the producers. This enables the guide to give readers a more comprehensive understanding of the place and the producer. In comparison, many other guides limit their relationship to a blind tasting, and then provide tasting notes and scores, Slow Wine creates a more nuanced and detailed insider’s review of the people, the farming and winemaking practices, and the wines. Each of the selected wineries respects and reflects the local terroir and practices sustainable methods that benefit the environment. The guide awards top wineries that are 100% free of chemical farming with the coveted Snail Award, which is given in recognition of the values Slow Wine Guide continues to passionately support.
