Get in Slow Wine Lane with Slow Wine 2011, Royal Horticultural Halls, London, March 11

After having worked with Gambero Rosso for a number of years on Tre Bicchieri guide, Slow Food Italy is now walking to its own drumbeat with Slow Wine, not so much a guide than a window in the lives and homes of Italian winemakers who want the way they treat the land to be as much a cause of celebration as the wines they produce.

On March 11, they will share the news outside Italy with a London Tasting at Royal Horticultural Halls under the aegis of Slow Food UK.

Slow Wine Guide 2011 is only available in Italian so far but they will use the event in London as a launch pad for a UK iPhone app for the guide which will be in English.
