Slow Wine Magazine

04 Apr 14

Slow Wine Magazine, our new digital magazine from that aims to provide a fresh look at the Italian wine scene, launches today. The 53-page magazine, which will be published six times a year, will be put together with the help of enological experts from all over Italy.

The Slow Wine Magazine aims to offer readers a profound insight into the world of Italian wine, the world’s largest wine producing country, inspired by the cornerstone values of Slow Food. It looks at a variety of factors to evaluate wines in their entirety, taking into consideration environmental sustainability in production, adherence to terroir, craftsmanship and quality-price ratio.

“A completely digital magazine produced in English, Italian and German, it will present our independent vision of the wine world,” says Giancarlo Gariglio, one of the editors of the Slow Wine guide and magazine along with Fabio Giavedoni. “The magazine will be divided into four parts, a long section dedicated to important Italian denominations; a smaller section on a little-known but rapidly improving zones; a retrospective, in other words a tasting of several wines from one great vintage; and vertical tastings.”

The Slow Wine Magazine is produced by Slow Food Editore. An annual subscription costs US$49. For those who subscribe before May 3, it will only cost $44.
