Critical Wine Verona Canceled

Wine blogger and Wine & Spirits Senior Editor Wolfgang Weber reports that Italy’s 2008 Critical Wine fair has been canceled. The fringe fair was to be held in Verona beginning April 3, 2008, to coincide with the Italian mainstream wine and spirits trade fair, Vinitaly (April 3 – 7).

According to Weber, who cites an email message from one of the fair’s organizers, the event was canceled after the mayor of Verona Flavio Tosi ordered the host venue closed. The event was to be held at the Centro Sociale La Chimica.

Critical Wine was founded in 2002 by food and wine writer and activist Luigi Veronelli. Its first fair was held in 2003 at the Centro Sociale Leoncavallo in Milan.
