Rechtszaak of toch maar niet

Gaat het afscheid toch moeilijker dan op voorhand leek? Lees over het verschil van ‘interpretatie van de stukken’ tussen Antonio Galloni en The Wine Advocate.

“Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate is suing its former California correspondent Antonio Galloni for breach of contract, fraud and defamation.

Antonio Galloni, who was contracted by the influential wine journal for a reported US$300,000 a year to cover California wines, resigned earlier this year after a majority share in the Wine Advocate was bought by a group of Singaporean investors.

At the time he was in the middle of an extensive report on the wines of Sonoma, which he did not deliver, explaining to subscribers on his new website that he would not be able to do justice to the diversity of the region in time for the Wine Advocate’s February issue.

The Wine Advocate is now accusing Galloni of ‘fraud and breach of [his] contractual obligations and [his] intentional and unjustifiable withholding of tasting notes’.”
