Terra Madre Day 2014

On December 10, the Slow Food network celebrates local food (and drink!) around the world with hundreds of unique events. It’s not too late to join the fun!

Since 2009, Terra Madre Day has become an important date on the Slow Food calendar, a moment when the Slow Food movement in over 150 countries puts local food in the spotlight through hundreds of unique activities: community picnics, debates, food festivals, film evenings, rallies and farmers’ markets, or even a simple dinner with friends.




Why not use the day to celebrate your local wines? Go visit a producer, host a tasting of wines from your area, or invite friends for a dinner where wine plays the starring role instead of the support act.


The events have already started rolling in. In Portugal, the Alentejo Convivium will celebrate a 2000-year-old tradition of winemaking by visiting winemakers (“adegas”) and tasting traditional wine in local taverns (“tabernas”). Slow Food Swan Valley in Australia will host a jazz evening featuring the Ark of Taste-nominated Swan Valley sundried muscat, while in the UK, the Three Counties Perry Presidium will enjoy a tasting of 20 different ciders and perries. Slow Food members in Sweden will toast with Glögg, a traditional, warm and spicy Christmas wine (get the recipe!).


Why not join in and celebrate your local libation?
