Wrath's San Saba Pinot Noir Awarded by Slow Wine Guide
Slow Wine USA (slowwineusa.com), a branch of the Slow Food movement begun in Italy in 1989 to protect local food cultures and traditions, has awarded Wrath’s Pinot Noir, San Saba Vineyard 2017 with its “COIN” award, designating that it represents an “excellent value for the price”. Wines submitted for judging by this organization must represent awareness of sustainable practices in the vineyard- to promote biodiversity, in the winery- where production methods should intervene as little as possible so the wines are an expression “of place” and in the community- to support the living environment for their employees and neighbors.
These goals are in-step with standards set down by SIP Certified: Sustainable-in-Practice, (sipcertified.org), an organization based in Atascadero, that promotes healthy vineyards and clean winemaking. Wrath is an active member of SIP Certified.
Slow Wine USA is currently planning to host an American tour in June 2021, stopping in San Francisco, Austin, and Seattle. A Slow Wine Guide USA is also being printed and will be available soon.
