  1. You know Slow Food? Well for wine lovers, there is also a Slow Wine Guide the covers Italian (and also some US based wineries) and in 2020, the guide will be celebrating its 10th edition!    Every year the Slow Wine guide is presented in Munich during an event at Eataly with a tasting of over 50 wineries (many of them having won awards either as a winery or for their individual wines). Most of the wineries are organic or biodynamic, some have certified vegan wines, but they are all recognised for their respect for the terroir and the people who work in it.   The event is open to wine lovers from 4.30pm until 8pm. Tickets for the walk-around tasting (taste at your own pace, meet the wine makers themselves), cost 12 euro and can either be bought online here: or at the Eataly Info point.    There will also be a programme of "Taste and Talk" sessions where Slow Wine editor Jonathan Gebser will present 5 wines on a different theme : indigenous grape varieties, Uber Slow Wines, Mountains and volcanoes. These talks are given in German. The tickets for these cost 15 euro, can only be bought online and include entrance to the walk-around tasting.    Any questions, just drop me a line,    Cheers,    Faye
