NEW YORK, Feb. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Antonio Galloni announced today the launch of www.antoniogalloni.com, a multimedia, technology driven platform. Galloni will continue his extensive reporting on the wines of Italy, Champagne, California and Burgundy, while expanding coverage to other regions.
"My interactions with readers over the last decade of wine writing are a consistent source of inspiration. These experiences gave me the conviction to introduce numerous innovations at The Wine Advocate, including video coverage and public tastings & events. At the same time, I felt a strong desire to return to my entrepreneurial roots, first established with Piedmont Report in 2004" Galloni states.
"I will continue to strive toward greater accessibility for readers in their appreciation of wine as I build on these innovations through my new venture. www.antoniogalloni.com will enable me to serve my readers better than ever before, always with the goal of assisting them in making informed wine choices and introducing them to great as yet undiscovered wines. In growing this new project my priority is to build a team of the highest-level professionals - appreciating, of course, that world-class talent is rare and hard to find."
"www.antoniogalloni.com represents the values and standards that I have demanded of myself for my entire career, namely genuine independence and the steadfast belief in the importance of representing the interests of my readers" says Galloni. "I will maintain my current travel, tasting and publishing schedule. Our readers at www.antoniogalloni.com will have complete access to the entire library of more than 25,000 reviews and several hundred articles which I have written over the course of the last ten years."
"I want to thank my long-time readers, many of whom date back to the Piedmont Report days, for their unwavering support, and also Robert Parker for encouraging me to follow my passion in wine."
