Gambero Rosso, the global authority on Italian wine, brings top-rated boutique and legacy brands to four U.S. cities for the last leg of its 2019 tour

Los Angeles, Calif. (May 2, 2019) – Gambero Rosso, the global authority on Italian wine and publisher of the esteemed annual Guide to Italian Wines, will bring its international tour to four U.S. cities, including first-time events in both San Diego and Atlanta. The tour also returns to Washington D.C. and Boston for the second time.

“The U.S. is the most important market for Italian wine outside of Italy and we are very excited about expanding the Gambero Rosso tour beyond traditional markets like New York and into some of the other cities with hot restaurant scenes and an appreciation for fine wine and food,” says Marco Sabellico, editor-at-large of Gambero Rosso’s Guide to Italian Wines.

About Vini d’Italia 2019

This year’s tour celebrates the release of Gambero Rosso’s 32nd edition of their annual guide, Vini d’Italia . Produced today in Italian, English, German, Chinese and Japanese; Vini d’Italia is the definitive resource on the country’s wines and wineries. It is the result of a year of work by an expert team of 53 tasters who have traveled the country (including Switzerland’s Canton Ticino starting this year) visiting wineries, interviewing producers and tasting 45,000 wines. The book reviews 2,485 wineries and a total of 22,000 wines, noting wines of distinction with bicchieri (glasses ). This year, just 436 Tre Bicchieri have emerged — fewer than one percent of the wines tasted. Vini d’Italia is not just a collection of scores and ratings; it is a fundamental and essential volume for all those who work in the sector or are interested in quality Italian wines. Available on Apple and Amazon.
