Why Italian wineries like our Slow Wine World Tour
Asian market is one of the most important wine market in the world. Every year a lot of Italian wineries decide to join Slow Wine World Tour. The event is organized by the consortium I Vini del Piemonte, in cooperation with Slow Wine. Slow Wine is the Slow Food guide to Italian wines, whose team selects wineries which produce wine respecting its organoleptic values as well as territory, tradition and identity, every year.
“I Vini del Piemonte” includes about 230 wine companies from Piedmont. Its aim is to promote and communicate in the best way possible the richness and peculiarities of the different Piedmontese wine designations.
Every winery which joins Slow Wine World Tour has the chance in Tokyo to get known, to know the Japanese way to understand wine and to find contacts for their business (importers, influencers, journalists etc.).
Why Japanese professionals attend Slow Wine wine tasting in Tokyo
The event at the Strings Omotesando will be reserved for the sector professionals (importers, restaurateurs, Ho.Re.Ca, sommeliers, journalists, bloggers, etc.). This is an unique chance for Japanese sector professionals to get to know producers, wines and the stories behind them in a personal and professional way.
The attending wineries were carefully selected to guarantee the Japanese wine lovers the possibility to meet those who represent a good, clean and fair enology. These wines are produced with the hard work of producers who directly grow their vines and control the entire production chain. The selected labels are the result of a sustainable viticulture for the environment, with a low use of chemicals. Moreover, these wines are the product of (high end) winemaking skills that let the territory of origin and the vine varieties shine. Those wine companies are fully in line with the Slow Food philosophy.
