Galloni Antonio

The wine critic Antonio Galloni was born in Caracas (Venezuela), where his parents ran a food and wine business and later moved to Florida (USA). He studied at the Berklee College of Music in Boston (Massachusetts), founded a rock band, studied at the MIT Sloan School of Business in Cambridge and started writing about wine even at that time. He worked full-time in marketing. At the turn of the millennium he went to Italy, where in 2004 he published the "Piedmont Report", the first English-language magazine on Italian wine

This brought him into contact with the US wine critic Robert M. Parker. Parker engaged him for his tasting team in the "Wine Advocate", where he was responsible for the evaluation of wines from Italy, California and the French wine-growing areas/regions Burgundy, Chablis, Champagne and Côte d'Or at different times between 2006 and 2013. After leaving the Parker team, he founded the Internet company "Vinous" in May 2013. In principle, he is focusing on the same wine-growing regions as in his previous position. Wine ratings are based on a 100-point system involving the readers and are published on his website along with general information about wine
