Slow Living at Slowine Wines, Western Cape, South Africa

Slow Living

Contrary to the way it may sound, Slow living does not always mean that things have to happen slowly – actually what is meant to happen fast should happen fast. Rather, Slow living is a way of being: calm, patient, reflective instead of controlling and aggressive. It’s about quality over quantity, and having the time to make significant connections with other people. It does not mean that progress and improvement should be resisted. Slow living is about combining the best of the past with the useful innovations of the present. So embrace modern solutions, but if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

Slow Food

Slow living forms part of Slow food and this statement is justified by simply enjoying your friends and family while cooking a meal and complimenting it all with one of our Slowine wines.

Slow Food is a global, grassroots organisation with supporters in 150 countries around the world who are linking the pleasure of good food with a commitment to their community and the environment. It was founded to counter the rise of fast food and fast life, the disappearance of local food traditions and people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and how our food choices affect the rest of the world.
