The Punch Down Episode 8 with Guest: Antonio Galloni (Replay)

Vinted on October 30, 2013 binned in The Punch Down

The Punch Down Episode 8 is in the books, and we had a stellar guest in critic Antonio Galloni, who somehow managed to be proud, educational, erudite and humble all at the same time.

We talk Famer Fizz, geeky Italian quality designations, Idaho Wine, Ferrari Perle 2006, wine scores, the future of Vinous Media, Galloni’s relationship with former employer Robert Parker, and wine tasting dental care.

Just another day at the office. Enjoy!

The Punch Down Episode 8 with… Antonio Galloni

Vinted on October 22, 2013 binned in The Punch Down

Ladies, gents, geeks of legal drinking age within your respective countries… I’m happy to announce that the next guest on The Punch Down will be wine critic Antonio Galloni.

Galloni, of course, was formerly on the staff of the insanely-influential The Wine Advocate, and was widely thought to be the heir apparent to TWA founder Robert Parker, Jr. But all of that changed when Galloni left TWA earlier this year (with an ensuing un-served lawsuit from his former employer), and founded his own Internet-based wine publication, Vinous Media.

By reputation and work ethic – and by his long-standing association with TWA – Galloni is widely considered one of the most important and influential wine critics in the U.S.

Join us LIVE at 2PM ET next week, October 29th, for the interview!

Got a question you want us to field to Galloni? Of course you do, if you’re any self-respecting wine geek – so shout ‘em out!

Cheers!

Robert Parker And California: A Cautionary Tale

Vinted on February 15, 2011 binned in California wine, commentary, wine news

The topic is old news now, and while revisiting it runs the risk of sounding a late-to-the-party bell with overtones of “me, too!,” I do think I can offer you something new on the latest (and largest) piece of wine biz news.

I’m speaking of the news last week of uber-wine-critic Robert Parker passing on tasting/reviewing responsibilities for California wine to Antonio Galloni at The Wine Advocate. There have already been several takes on the news in blogosphere, with my faves coming from W. Blake Gray and Jeff Lefevere (both of whom do a stellar job of covering the big and small of the wine industry and provide thoughtful commentary on the potential ripple effects).

When the news broke, I was in Portugal where the Parker news wasn’t even news, presumably because The Wine Advocate doesn’t pay much attention to Portuguese table wines (or so it might be argued by the Portuguese table wine industry, anyway). So I was totally unaware of the announcement from Parker, or the ensuing coverage in the wine media, until I returned at the close of that work week.

Now, what’s to be said about Parker no longer covering CA wines that hasn’t already been said?

Well, as most of you out there will recall, I interviewed Parker not too long ago, and while that hardly qualifies as having a window into his soul, it might be just enough access to have formulated a different – and more cautionary – viewpoint into his recent decision…
