Reviews for the 2023 Guide

‘The best resource I can recommend is the Slow Wine Guide, an annual publication that vets wineries for a range of ecological criteria. The guide recommends wineries that do not use chemically synthesized [herbicides] (like Roundup), and also checks for things like water use, sustainably constructed buildings and intervention during the winemaking process.’
Esther Mobley, San Francisco Chronicle

‘I am grateful for this resource that highlights organic farming practices and a commitment to growing and producing wine with integrity.’
Kelly Damewood, CEO of California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF)

Slow Wine USA is a guide to 400+ wineries from California, Oregon, New York and Washington that prioritize land stewardship as the foundation of their sustainability efforts by farming without synthetic herbicides. With the help of a team of expert contributors, we’ve visited the wineries, assessed their farming practices, and reviewed some of their most outstanding bottles. Each winery review is divided in three sections: the first one dedicated to the people who live and work at the winery, the second to the vineyards and the way they’re farmed, and the third to three of their best wines.

‘The books that taught me about wine were about places and people. It’s the history and stories about a wine that bring it to life and make it worth talking about.’
