The Lawrence Hall, Royal Horticultural Halls, London

To mark this special occasion, we shall be staging an exclusive tasting of over 100 wines

from 50 Italian producers awarded in the guide with the snail symbol for vineyard and

cellar work in line with the Slow Food philosophy.

11.30am – 4.00pm: tasting for press and members of the trade only (there will be a short

presentation of the new guide at 12.00pm)

4.00pm – 8.00pm: tasting will be open to the public as well as to press and trade

Slow Wine 2011 is the first guide to Italian wines published exclusively by Slow Food,

and it adopts a new approach to evaluating wine that looks beyond just the liquid in the

glass to take into account ethical and environmental values as well. Packed with news,

facts and figures, the guide focuses on small- to medium-scale, artisan producers and

introduces many up-and-coming wineries, with a special emphasis on those that adopt a

natural approach and/or are most closely linked to their respective terroirs.
