Malvasia de Sitges wine was invited last week to the Slow Wine Fair, held in the Italian city of Bologna and dedicated to quality, local, ‘good, clean and fair’ wines.
The fair bears the stamp of ‘Slow Food’, the prestigious international movement, founded in 1989 to prevent the disappearance of local food cultures and traditions.
The Slow Wine Fair saw over 10,000 visitors, with a strong presence of industry professionals, more than 750 wineries, 4000 labels, masterclasses and conferences.
Malvasia de Sitges, through the Celler de l’Hospital de Sant Joan Baptista, was present at the fair with the coordinator of the Interpretation Centre, Alba Gràcia, who explained the philosophy of Sitges wine from the Llopìs legacy, and the recent expansion towards 30 more wineries throughout Catalonia that grow this variety.
Malvasia de Sitges also joined the ‘Slow Wine Coalition’, an international network that unites all the protagonists in the wine industry to ‘start a revolution in wine based on environmental sustainability, defence of the landscape and the socio-cultural growth of the countryside’.
