Can food be a bridge to peace? The Slow Wine Coalition, as part of the wider Slow Food network, believes it can: “through inclusion and exchange, we can cultivate a better future together.”
The Slow Wine Coalition started in Italy inspired by the Slow Food Movement which began in 1986 after a “demonstration on the intended site of a McDonald’s at the Spanish Steps in Rome.” Since then,the movement advocates “a comprehensive approach to food that recognizes the strong connections between plate, planet, people, politics and culture.”
“Speed became our shackles. We fell prey to the same virus: ‘the fast life.’”
How do we find peace and freedom? Slow down! Share organic food and wine!
According to the Slow Food website, “Slow Food believes that wine, just as with food, must be good, clean, and fair — not just good.”
