This confirmed and extended the Brand’s partnership with Slow Food, launched in December 2020 and continued through its participation at Slow Fish 2021 as official partner.The 2022 Slow Wine Guide, which rates 1,958 Italian wine growers, marked the eagerly awaited return of the team’s visits to the wineries, a unique feature amongst wine guides, and of the Snails, the symbol awarded to wineries that interpret the values of sensory, territorial and environmental excellence in tune with the Slow Food philosophy.
This year 218 wineries received the coveted Snails, including 23 new entries. During the presentation of the guide, the prize-giving ceremony for the three Slow Wine Awards (lifetime, young wine-maker and sustainable wine-growing) also took place, with the sustainability prize, promoted and sponsored by FPT Industrial, assigned to the Ceretto family of Alba.
