Slow Wine Tasting
Our first seminar will highlight 6 Italian wines (3 whites and 3 reds) that were chosen for the Slow Wine Guide of 2013 which is being kicked off in the US in NYC on January 28th at Three Sixty right before the Gambero Rosso tasting.   For 20 years, Slow Food co-published the Italian Wines guide with Gambero Rosso, arguably the most famous and influential wine publication in Italy. The much sought-after "three glasses" awards stimulated producers to aim for maximum quality, hence to change the Italian wine scene and its image abroad. But the Slow Food quality criteria have developed in the meantime; they now embrace more than just sensory virtues and also incorporate ethical and environmental values.  A wine cannot be judged by scores, symbols or other numerical evaluations, but needs to be assessed in a broader context. To describe this reality, it is essential to leave tasting rooms and travel to the vineyards and their wineries. More than 2,000 cellars were visited, thousands of vineyards scaled, hundreds of firsthand interviews conducted and countless questions asked. The new concept means that the guide centers around the agronomical efforts of cellars, describing vines planted, vineyards tended and the philosophy underpinning the work of winemakers.
