Wine Pour

Technology has increased in recent years, so has the education level of the average consumer. The internet and smart phones allow information available in an instant. 

With this technology, the consumer has evolved with a greater awareness of the benefits of more organic foods. Some might say wine is also a food. At the end of the day wine is simply a fruit crop grown in a dirt field, that's fueled by God's weather.

Many Italian winemakers respect and understand the "Slow Wine" movement. In fact, more than 50 producers from 15 Italian wine regions have organized themselves to share the fruit of their labor in southern California on Tuesday, January 27th, from 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM (PST)  at the Taglyan Complex (1201 Vine Street, Los Angeles CA).

Ticket holders will have the opportunity to taste over 100 Italian slow wines. 

According to the events site: 

"Traditional techniques, working with respect for the environment and terroir, and safeguarding the incredible biodiversity of grape varieties that are part of Italy's heritage."

"Slow Wine provides a fresh look at the Italian wine scene, looking beyond the glass and the qualities of each of the 8,400 wine’s reviewed to also consider the approaches used in the vineyard and cellar of more than 1,800 wineries - from some of the country’s most renowned winemakers to small producers."
