So What? Charbono is an obscure, black-skinned varietal was nearly extinct. It was taken under the protective wing of the Slow Foods movement’s ‘Ark of Taste’ program.  These wines must be  ‘outstanding in terms of taste,’ ‘at risk,’ ‘sustainably produced,’ ‘culturally or historically linked,’ and ‘produced in limited quantities’[1].  Only 75 acres are planted in the United states. The Slow Foods movement began in 1986 by an Italian named Carlo Petrini who took a stand against fast food by protesting the opening of a McDonalds in Rome. Chapters are built on ethical and ecological standards that systematically work to preserve and instill better health, nutrition, and sustainable lifestyle choices through food.  Kenny Likitprakong has created a beautiful sustainable business model, demonstrating that really well made wine that supports organic farming, ethical working conditions, and extreme reductions in waste and energy efficiencies can actually be affordable and fun.
