Slow Wine Magazine is a publication by Slow Food Editore, the publishing house of the international Slow Food organization.


Our philosophy

Slow Food believes that wine, just as with food, must be good, clean, and fair — not just good.


Wine is an agricultural product, just like any of the foods we eat, and has an impact on the lives of the people who produce it, as well as on the environment – through pesticides, herbicides and excessive water consumption which are all commonplace in conventional wine production.


Our initiatives

Through our guide, online magazine and international tour, we support and promote small-scale Italian winemakers who are using traditional techniques, working with respect for the environment and terroir, and safeguarding the incredible biodiversity of grape varieties that are part of Italy’s heritage.


Slow Wine Magazine

Our online magazine looks behind the label and paints a comprehensive picture of Italian wine culture, with a focus on sustainability, history, terroir and the aging potential of certain wines. With six editions a year, Slow Wine magazine is also available in German and Italian. Find the latest edition here.


Slow Wine Guide

The annual Slow Wine guide adopts a new approach to wine criticism, taking into consideration the wine quality, adherence to terroir, value for money and environmental sensitivity. In our English version we review more than 2,500 wines and 300 cellars, offering a comprehensive guide of Italian wines (also available in German and Italian). Buy the 2015 edition here.


Slow Wine events

With visits in the USA, Germany, Russia, Canada and Hong Kong, plus participation in international Slow Food events, we present a selection of the best wines from the Slow Wine guide, along with their producers, to offer participants a different perspective on Italian wines.
