I just received news that this event has been cancelled due to a customs delay. Everyone who purchased a ticket will be receiving a personal email from Slow Wine and refunds will be issued. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.
**Please note that this is not an official meetup event, as we will not be attending as a group. I just thought that you'd be interested -- and we have a code -- SavorTonightSW -- that will save you 50% on tickets. Also, tickets must be purchased directly through EventBrite and not meetup.

One year after its English-language debut, Slow Wine, the guide to Italian wineries approved as good, clean and fair by Slow Food Italy is premiering a new and updated edition. To celebrate the launch, Slow Wine will be doing a walk-around tasting tour in New York City, Miami and San Francisco.
In Miami, the walk around tasting will feature over 55 selected producers with 15 Italian regions represented. With the purchase of a ticket, every attendee will receive a complimentary copy of the THE SLOW WINE GUIDE 2nd edition (a $25 value).
“With Slow Wine we have changed the way of reviewing wine” comments Marco Bolasco, CEO of Slow Food Editore. Three symbols are used in the guide to evaluate each winery:
The Snail, the Slow Food symbol, signals a cellar that has distinguished itself through its interpretation of sensorial, territorial, environmental and personal values in harmony with the Slow Food philosophy.
The Bottle, allocated to cellars that show a consistently high quality throughout their range of wines.
The Coin, an indicator of great value.
