The Slow Wine 2020 guide shows 21 new wineries that received our Snail Award! A Snail winery is one “…that we particularly like for the way it interprets Slow Food values (sensory perceptions, territory, environment, identity).” Their wines represent the terroir, have a good quality-price ratio considering the environment they are produced in and represent a paragon of sustainable viticulture! We can surely say that, among the prizes we assign every year, this one is the closest to our values.
This award is reassigned every year, therefore it is possible that a winery may not be reconfirmed as a Snail each time: the main causes could be a change in management, the unavailability of products for the current year, an evident decrease in average quality of the vintage or, generally, a change of values. The Guide is a unique and original product, every year a different version of itself.
