3th Slow Wine Fair
[:it]3th Slow Wine Fair[:]

Events continue in anticipation of 3th Slow Wine Fair, a new edition of the international fair dedicated to good, clean and fair wine, to be held at BolognaFiere Feb. 25-27. One of the stages in the run-up to the Bologna event is the in-depth online conferences. The latest in chronological order is the one held on January 17 on the theme “Soil, a Common Good.”
The organizational machine is also in full swing in the selection of exhibitors – screened by a committee of national and international experts – and in organizing the presence of buyers, restaurateurs and insiders in search of wines that are an expression of the territory and environmentally conscious.
Among the many proposals the fair is preparing are Masterclasses, guided tastings aimed at wine enthusiasts and professionals and dedicated to exploring the Italian and international wine scene.

3rd Slow Wine Fair: focus on indigenous grape varieties.

Many themes are at the center of this third edition of the event. And among these, special attention goes to the study of the heritage of native grape varieties, that is, that extraordinary ampelographic wealth that is a distinctive element of Italian viticulture. As many as 750 varieties of wine grapes are in fact registered in our country-and reviewed by Slow Food Editore’s Guide to the Grapes of Italy-some forgotten and later rediscovered, safeguarded and enhanced.
Talking about autochthonous wines means retracing the history, tradition and biodiversity of a product that is a symbol of Italianness. These are varieties that are often found only in certain portions of our territory, demonstrating that each region has its own specific oenological identity that deserves to be told, popularized and tasted. Precisely to enhance this cultural and commercial capital, 3th Slow Wine Fair https://slowinefair.slowfood.it/ organizes meetings-tastings that help wine lovers and professionals to disentangle the proposals and discover real gems of precise territories, not limiting themselves to the best-known wines.

The Terroir Wine List and Slow Spirit Awards.

As of Jan. 16, you can also vote on the featured venues for the Terroir Wine List and Slow Spirit Awards, which celebrate the world’s best wine and retail selections. From the Nov. 7 launch to Jan. 15, wine enthusiasts and industry professionals nominated more than 500 wine lists for the award’s 12 territorial and thematic categories.
Until Feb. 1, each user can express a single preference per category. The ranked venues will, then, be evaluated by a jury of experts, who will decide to whom to award the prizes on Monday, Feb. 26, during the 3rd Slow Wine Fair.
